Cylance Cycling tried out the latest in disc brake equipped time trial machines at the Redlands Bicycle Classic earlier this week when bike sponsor Cannondale supplied three riders with disc-equipped Super Slice TT bikes.

Eric Marcotte, Karl Menzies and Kyle Murphy rode the disc-equipped Super Slice bikes, with Murphy, a prodigious climber, spinning a respectable 17th-place finish, 26 seconds off the time of stage winner Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly-Maxxis).

In the gallery above, Cyclingnews takes a closer look at the Super Slice Murphy used in the time trial.
