Okay, one last piece of advice before I purchase my X bike this weekend. I have finally decided on the Redline Conquest (sweet ride for the buck) and then today I find a 2005 Redline Conquest Disc-R for less than the 2006 Conquest I was planning on buying. As it is online I am unable to test the disc but hear it rides a bit different. In the end they are about the exact same price. I have heard so many opinions of disc brakes that it seems a coin toss. My mt. bike and road have vs and cantis, my new X bike will be primarily for short commutes (5 to 15 miles) and little else. I want a fun and fast ride. Any swift response would be greatly appreciated.
