    If comfortable ride is your highest priority, then I think Ti may still be a viable option. Although I don't know that a lot of people are still building Ti tandems.

    No doubt there are going to be a number of disc brake road bikes available. That it will be a new standard is far from decided.

    That's a $10,000 bike, that with pedals weighs over 15 lbs. Not...

    First, the 2 in Di2 stands for two i's. Digital integrated intelligence. It doesn't reference different iterations. There never was a Di1, and there won't be a Di3.

    +3. If your goal is aero. Skip the discs. And they're totally unnecessary on a road bike in flat terrain.

    There's never going to be an end point. The "modern road bike" seemed to be pretty mature and reached its end point by the 1970's, then a whole wave of innovation, mostly inspired by mountain bikes...

    If you look at fatigue testing data, a well built cf frame out performs steel frames.

    It is drastically different from doing a tri.

    I'm not arguing that going slower down descents is not a rational decision. I'm merely pointing out the way you descend has a lot to do with what you need in brakes.

    It gets back to descending styles. If you only touch brakes once for the entry of each turn, you don't have a heating issue even on steep terrain. If you want to control speed, and are putting them...

    I'd be concerned about heat dissipation with 140mm discs. There have been anecdotal reports of 140mm discs fading due to heat on long descents on single bikes. Depending on how you descend, I could...
