i rode the other morning in fog with my rim brake bike, came to an acute angle turn and hit the brakes to slow, nothing, pulled harder and managed to get it slowed before running out of road. it's fall here and early morning rides can often involve fog. i put the rim brake bike in the basement and got out the disc brake bike for the rest of the season. i have crmo and aluminium forks, no carbon, but none them will help stop a bike in adverse conditions.
