Disc Brakes on Road Bikes - The Industry Speaks | @bikeradar

Do cyclists need new technologies or is it the bicycle industry that needs new technologies so they can sell us new stuff?

There's no reason to buy a new brake if mine was working perfectly fine, and that was the only style being produced. Now, if there's a better style, I MUST HAVE THE BEST. Even if it requires buying not just a new brake caliper and lever, but a frame, fork and hubs with disc mounts!

I love bikes and some aspects of the bicycle industry, but be leary of the hype. They're still capitalists!
