You should probably talk to @Joachim Parbo as well. He's the first and only UCI pro racer to run a full season on Hydraulic disc brakes (TRP's Parabox). I've spent a bunch of time on a Parabox equipped Felt and it was AWESOME! There is a bit of a learning curve with the brakes, but the difference in performance is notable for just the reasons stated in part 2 of this series: the ability to dive deeper into corners, scrub speed and get back on the gas sooner. They are also, like mini v's, great for the myriad of micro-adjustments that one does in cross. They may not be defacto yet, but I'm guesing they will be in a few years.
