Upgrades From Cannondale CAADX 105

  • Shimano Ultegra gear shifters have a great track record for being the reliable first choice of more and more getting-serious road bike riders.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes - widely regarded as the most reliable in mountain biking - are already proving equally flawless on road bikes.

Why you should consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes

  • Hydraulic disc brakes are mechanically more efficient than cable-operated brakes when it comes to that essential function of bicycle brakes - the pads engage and release more efficiently.
  • The braking is more controlled and modulated so you quickly get a feel for the lever pull required whether you need to lightly scrub your speed or come to an emergency stop.
  • Another significant factor is that hydraulic hoses, unlike cables, are not prone to fraying, rusting, kinking and breaking. This fundamental difference helps explain why hydraulic brakes require far less maintenance and adjustment than cable-operated brakes.
  • Moving the brakes from the mud and rain-attracting wheel rims to the relatively clean hubs make for an improvement in the brakes' all-weather all-conditions performance.
  • Disc brake pads are much harder so they last much longer.
  • Disc brakes automatically self adjust so the pads move closer to the rotor as they wear down so they require far less maintenance to compensate for brake pad wear.
  • Your wheel rims should also last much longer now that they are no longer worn down by the brake pads.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes are generally accepted as the best and the most widely adopted improvement in bicycle technology we've seen over the past 15 years.
  • On cross bikes like this, moving the brakes away from the rims maximises clearance for mud and mudguards.
