I WONDER HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO HAVE AN 'OH SHYTE' MOMENT ON THE ROAD?
Honestly, might not happen.
Rarely happens with rim brakes, unless it's rainin'.
But, I've noticed that on HVY MTL - my gravel machine - I seem to PR a lot of paved downhills without even a minor fret. or butt pucker.
Those disc brakes deliver juicy confidence... unlike the weak, coy braking on my carbon rims.
But today's fickle braking on the road is nothing compared to what it was on MTBs a hunnert years ago.
If it wasn't the dust or the mud, just guessing when the red hot rims would decide to grab was a form of roulette... one I learned to love, and coldly dropped for my first disc-equipped lady.
The first Turner 5-Spot changed EVreethang for me'
Soon 'nuf, I was pushing the boundaries of the lugs more than anything.
Anyway... enough histree.
The point is there's a lot less cussing with discs.
I'm all for cutting down the cussing... which reminds me...
If yer in the market for one of the many fine products make and yer concerned yer secret Santa is gonna blow it, just have 'em get ya a gift card.
It's a lot safer for you and for them.
Ya know what I mean?
