Nice listing (followed a link from another thread). These make me want to sell off my Bad Boy Disc.

sort of - I only listed the complete bikes - there are a lot of frames out there (redline, salsa, kinesis, etc.) that are 700c with disc tabs. If you could add a list of the frame only options to the bottom of this or your post that'd be awesome!

edit: doh! just checked their website and the la Cruz is a complete bike.

No custom frame and/or equipped as standard, i.e., you don't have to add anything. It comes from off the peg/rack/hanger clothes as opposed to tailored/custom, I think.

There are/were a few bikes that were "disc ready" because the manufacturer chickened out of actually specifying and equipping discbrakes. These're next to useless if you're looking for something you can ride away from the shop immediately.

rocky mountain sherpa 10 for 2008 no longer have disc brakes. At least the Canadian catalogue doesn't have it anymore.

Just found you a new one.
Opus Sentiero Cross bike
dropouts have Disc + Rack + Fender mounts
Tiagra drive train 9sp and road compact double 50/34 so one could easily swap the RD and cassette to use a MTB 11-34 cassette.

Not sure what is the fattest tyre it can accept. I found it at my LBS, so I'll go back with a caliper along with a test ride, see how it does

add: at least 700x45mm with some clearance left over. Probably up to 40mm with fenders will fit just fine. frame was too large for me, sigh.

Unfortunately no camera (yes, I'm an eeedjit)

dia-compe make a combination one finger/two finger brake (you use it on one side like a goldfinger and the other like a standard brake lever) as well as a load of other useful stuff
extrawheel bike trailers
"singular cycles" frames
hebie chainglider are even more awesome than I'd previously thought (I didn't realise you don't even have to touch the drive train to install it - no mess, no fuss)
London Cycling Campaign needs volunteers
BHPC.org.uk had a suprisingly big stand with some cool faired bents, a velokraft nocom (turns out they supply some marshals and timing people for battle mountain every year) and I think I saw Mike Burrows at the stand
Black Diamond Sabbath - saw it in the flesh. Very nice!
A company that has a similar setup to the Koga Miyata semi-custom tourer (the cool difference was their bike trailer which mounts onto bosses built into the frame)

Loads of other stuff (most of which you'd see in either eurobike or interbike pictures) including Theo Bos' and Shanaze Reed's olympic bikes on the shamino stand.

https://www.cycleshow.co.uk/ - tickets still available for Fri, Sat, Sun, I think

edit: also had an argument with the marketing geek from brompton about frames/handlebars/rear triangles/forks breaking, merc bikes (yes - we sold them the rights, no - we had a falling out and want our stuff back) and disc brakes. Finally got him to admit that "I'm not technical but if you want to talk to the engineer about breakages and disc brakes then he'll be back in 5min"
