Now that the Union Cycliste Internationale allows disc brakes on cyclo-cross bikes, manufacturers have been scrambling to get kit to market.

The TRP brake brand by Tektro of Taiwan is at the Taipei show with its Parabox converter which allows cyclo-cross riders to use hydraulic disc brakes via dropbar cable levers, converting cable pull into hydraulic push.

The Parabox converter fits underneath the stem, with two noodles feeding the wires in to the back and the hydraulic lines exiting via the front. There are banjo fittings for a variety of hydraulic line routing options.
