I constantly want to do this…especially with people hailing cabs in NYC
when you ride past a bus stop and there are people sticking their arms out to hail a bus do you ever just get the urge to high five them, because I do but I never have the cojones

This is part 2 in a series of articles about our experiences with disc brakes for road. It’s been a bit longer than we intended since our introduction to this series. The reasoning for this will become clear as we go on and may speak to the viability of the road disc platform itself. Read part one here.
For starters, let’s talk about our test machine. As previously mentioned, we built a Gaulzetti Corsa in disc configuration. Aside from brake mounting, this Corsa differs not at all from every other bike of the current generation that we’ve built. In this case, our test bike is a 51cm stock geometry Corsa that we painted in a custom Candy Blue with Embro Green logos. For the fork, we specified the Enve Composites tapered disc fork - again, the same fork we normally use, just in disc version. We chose the readily available Avid BB7 SL calipers with Avid HS01 6-bolt discs in 140mm for our initial test brakes. We built the bike up with a Campy Chorus groupset with Deda 35 cockpit parts and a Selle Italia Superflow 135 saddle. Pretty standard stuff around here for Gaulzetti builds, really, but that’s where the simplicity ended.
