About the disk brakes on road bikes thingy...

on my mountain bike I have disks. They're cheap Hayes So1es and the issue may be because of that. But it seems that I'm always adjusting for parasitic drag on the rotors and that with temp swings from cool to warm the fluid expands enough to start dragging again. Is that typical of discs or just low end systems?

On a road racing bike I would think any risk of parasitic loss would be a deal breaker.
