If we said that it took some convincing for disc brakes to start grasping a hold in the peloton it would be an understatement. It was a bit more like pulling teeth with the pros, but for most riders, it doesn't take more than a day on discs to understand its benefits, which would explain why we've been seeing more disc-equipped bikes making their way first through the finish lines first in professional races.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
