About that GCN disc vs. rim brake compare....

I've seen this video referenced many times as "proof" that discs are better stoppers.

One thing that those who advocate discs NEVER mention is that the rim brakes are operating with CARBON rims. It is well known that carbon rims offer inferior braking surfaces, and that aluminum is far superior.

Obviously, GCN is infatuated with the "latest and greatest" but I'd like see someone with more scruples offer up a fairer test with a comparison between disc brakes (both hydraulic and mechanical) vs. rim brakes on ALUMINUM rims.

If anyone finds such a video or has their own informal comparison to offer, post it here.
