    need to translate, but the seat for getting on the handcycle looks cool.
    site doesn't show the "Carbide"
    Note the "race cross" with the bionix

    you can't get disc brakes on a Force R either

    Race bikes are all about weight and aerodynamics, disc brakes would be a negative for both.

    Jfuentes runs a disc on his Force R, he had top end make a wider fork for it(not on the options, but can be done). Running in the mountains I would think it would be required to keep rims from overheating and popping tires?

    what do you think cyclists did before disc brakes?

    I've never heard of a rim overheating & resulting in a flat.

    Racing bikes run with much higher speeds than mountain bikes and don't use disc brakes..... Disc brakes are better only in wet and muddy terrain, but are heavier ....
