I was disappointed that Strida went to disc brakes as they just don't need them. However, from what I read, drum brakes are now more expensive to source.
Disc brakes seem to be where the 'fashion' is going whether their suitable or not?
There is a argument that the stopping power of disc brakes is too much for tire traction to cope with (and this is on full sized bikes) so should folding bikes gain more weight when a lighter way of stopping (v-brakes, drum brakes) are available?
On a loose link, reminds me of the camera battles of ever larger megapixels when you really need the sensor to match or you get no use from those extra megapixels.
