Big Front Disc on a Gravel Bike?

Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Me + bike = ~240lbs. I was getting around 8k miles out of a 160 up front, the 180 has done all 18k of those miles, still going.
