Hot or Not Disc Brake only thread

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hot or Not Disc Brake only thread

Let's see what's out there in the disc brake bicycle world.

I don't have a roadie with discs so I can't contribute.

No manufacturers web pics please!

For a guy who doesn't own a disc bike, you are very obsessed with disc bikes

I bet their mechanics couldn't true a rear wheel, so they let it be out of true without rubbing!

Oh... I saw "disc brakes" and ASSumed it was for mountain bikes.

Why do you need disc brakes on a road bike?

I don't. But I also don't need to endlessly rail on and belittle riders who want them or assess that they need them.
