    I saw you yesterday heading NB on Canada Rd, riding your Bianchi with the NorCal BF jersey.

    I agree with this 100%. There is a reason Cannondale uses the "Fatty" fork and high spoke count wheels. The front disc puts a tremendous load on the fork. Reviewers of the SRAM road hydraulic disc...
