    Indeed! Love my 2015 tubulars (last year they were made). Great handling, great ride, and great aluminum track braking. With my incoming allroad disc, I'm anticipating my rim-brake bike with either be sold or have limited road time; seems a shame to have mine sitting in wheel bags in the shop...

    If they made a disc tubular version I'd be all over it. But not even a tubular rim version in the catalog today. Sigh....

    The all roads bike that is coming must be pretty special if the Hampsten is being benched!

    I'm anticipating the new bike will be very special. As is the Hampsten; I may indeed go back and forth between them because I may not want to give up time on either. While I may risk losing my forum membership with this comment, I'm looking to have the number of bikes/wheels/etc be better aligned with my physical capabilities and amount/type of riding I'm doing. Having two stellar custom bikes as well as a mountain bike, fat bike and rain bike is beginning to feel excessive for me; for others a stable like this could be wildly inadequate:)

    No disc tubular wheels? What are the pro CX riders on?

    Not sure if this is for me, Jorn; current bike is rim, new is disc. I just got a set of Bora 35 disc tubs for the go-fast wheels (can't buy a go-fast set of legs, though...) on the incoming. Also thinking of a set of disc tubeless clinchers for mixed/dirt/gravel which would be my first foray in tubeless. I'm not excited about having both disc and rim brake wheelsets if I'm trying to simplify.

    No sorry - I misread the post. You didn't mean there weren't any tubular disc wheels in existence. Not sure which part of my brain I was using.

    Ah, rereading my post I could have been specific about no Shamal tub discl it was obtuse. Cheers.
