Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I upgraded to the disc frame when I had a warranty issue develop with my original (canti) cx frame. The warranty customer service from Habanero was fantastic; and I had my new frame built up within two weeks (and it only took that long because they were waiting on new stock to arrive). And I'm confident that the issue w/ the canti bike was exceptional (and not indiciative of a general quality problem).
I love that Habanero made a disc option available, as that was the part of cx that I liked the least: dealing with brakes. I had started with Avid cantilevers and then upgraded to TRP mini-V brakes (which were a huge improvement for both shudder and stopping performance), but never felt like braking was a very solved problem. And changing wheelsets always meant re-adjusting, which was never trivial.
The disc brakes are fantastic for stopping confidence when riding off-road or in wet of freezing conditions. I love the simplicity of adjusting [mechanical] disc...
