So I'm doing well on the Cdale and having a lot of fun. I rode my Colnago the other day, and one real noticeable difference (I mean apart from the fact that there was no one out back trying to talk to me while the wind was making it impossible...) was braking. The standard V brakes are OK, but I am wondering if I should be thinking of either the Arai drum or a disk for the rear? I ride in the coastal plain all the time, i.e.- no real big hills, but we do get rolling along. Brakes are adjusted fine; I should add that switching from the stock wheels to Bontragers made braking a bit less effective even after adjustment (narrower rims).
