    Bianchi M.U.S.S

    Promising or not? I like the rigid fork but discs on the rear look like alot of work

    link? pardon my laziness.
    I have disc brakes on steelhead which has "horizontal dropouts" and it is a pain, but only when I'm taking the wheel off. And I can't say I do that a lot.

    I would say it looks good. I really like my avids. They aren't the ones on the singlespeed but they set-up even easier so it should be even less of a hassle.
    The bike looks pretty solid. If I couldn't get the jamis exile so much cheaper, I would definitely consider it. I wouldn't let the disc brakes making the wheel a big harder to change hurt your decision. you'll need a wrench for that back wheel anyway.

    I've got the SISS. The brakes on the rear are a little bit more of a pain to set up initially, but if you set them up correctly, then you can remove & replace the wheel without having to adjust them.
