    Think I Saw Felt Disc CX

    I happen to work just a couple blocks from Felt HQ. I've seen rumors of Felt coming out with a CF disc equipped CF bike.
    A couple of days ago as I was driving home from work I saw a guy riding from the street onto a local dirt trail. I only saw him quickly but did notice big tires. Then I looked for brakes on the rear.
    I tend to look for cantis vs caliper brakes to check for CX bikes. That's when I noticed no rear brakes in the regular spot.
    I didn't think to look for discs in the quick glimpse I had.
    It was definetly a black Felt and might have had a large bottom bracket area as I often see on CF bikes.
    I'll be looking out for it again.

    If that's true, a CF disc Felt may be on my future bike list. It took a lot of self control for me not to buy a Focus disc cross bike at the local bike shop. The only thing that kept me from buying was the 130 rear disc hub and to a lesser degree that it was an aluminum frame. If this mythical beast does exist, here's hoping it's spec'd with the traditional 135 rear hub spacing. There aren't may 130 rear disc hubs out there. 135 is the norm.

    Soulja,
    Focus Mares Disc has a 135 rear disc hub (Shimano 505). Pretty sweet bike I just picked up on closeout.

    Most of the cross bikes I've looked at with discs has 132.5 spacing. Which works for both 135 and 130 hubs. My bike has 132.5 spacing and I'm using Mavic Speed City disc wheels which are 29er wheels spaced at 135. Only 130 disc wheels I've found are either Bontrager or Velocity.

    Good to know. Glad I wasn't armed with that info when I saw the Mares disc at the shop or I'd have another bike I probably didn't need (for now at least). From a quick cursory glance at the hear hub it looked kind of narrow to me.

    @knobster - I've also seen 130 Vuelta disc wheels pop on a fleabay.
