Want to buy a Sirrus Sport with Disc brakes but can't tell if the weight of the Avid BB-5 mechanical disc is more then the regular forged 6061 linear pull, (how much weight i don't know 1 lbs maybe?)
The sales guy tells me that if my wheels are not true it wont matter for the disc brakes? While the regular linear pull brakes will rub against the side wheel making a noise thus going to the LBS to get your wheels trued, is this correct? Going to LBS is a headache for me.
If anyone has opinions on disc brake or regular brakes please comment on the pros and cons.
In my situation price is equal to on regular brakes vs disc brakes on the bike. So my only care is disc brakes look cool other then that i can't choose which type of bike with brakes discs or not. Only other bad thing i hear is going up hills maybe a problem, tried riding it felt a little slugish tried riding a elite without discs brakes felt almost the same. Until i ride longer will it be a mistake to buy a bike with disc brakes even though i will never ride in winter or rain ever? Its got to be 90 degress and dry for my riding experience.
