Easy Peasy
 
You know can check all wheel sellers sites that offer disc for said info, trying to argue it out backwards here is a bit of a waste.

A current performance went down today at the tour of Columbia. The top 2 teams in the TTT were on disc brakes. EF actually won a TTT!

I am by no means saying they won because of disc brakes, my main point is they are putting all the R&D money into disc brake system design, and the best current ones are already very good.

Can we get back to doping while testing for aerodynamics?

He's Right

Exactly, we're just rehashing disc thread stuff that we've all done to death. To summarize this thread: ride what you like and let the riders around you do the same.


The search for "proof" of anything requires testing.
For real world testing in real time we have to dope and ride vigorously and for long periods. Which I'm sure we'll forget to collect data on the first go around, cause short term memory loss, so then the retesting phase begins after that.

Who said anything about riding vigorously, or riding at all?

:D
