I have a small shallow creek that I cross on gravel training rides.  In the winter when its 32 or below the brake surface on my current rim brakes freezes over and braking power drops to zero.  Very dangerous. My next cx rig will probably will have disc because of this but I'm excited to have them for racing too.  The weight penalty concerns me a little for racing but my goal is to lighten up my next build in other places to compensate.  I just laced up some Stan's Crest rims to AM Classic hubs for a pretty light clincher set.  The wide mtb rims make my 33mm Clements look like 35mm.  Thinking this will be a good thing too.
