    Ima sum up this thread.
    1: there are plenty of disc bikes in the TDF
    2: 11spd has an irrational dislike/fear of this reality

    seems just a matter of time before most all are on disk. 2019?

    now, if most all are on disk for the roubaix stage, that will be a big milestone.

    flat tires will be the juggernaut.

    no more wheel changes on the side of the road.

    disc rub is real.

    In ten (five?) years when disc brake bikes are the only bikes being ridden in the TdF, this is going to be a funny thread to read.

    No it wouldn't be. Only an acknowledgement of the slow evolution to disc brakes in the peloton in spite of big bike brands going all in on disc on their most expensive bikes raced in the biggest tour of the year. Perhaps the biggest headwind are wheel changes and this year, it looks as though teams simply change out the whole bicycle.

    What will be more notable is in 5 years when there will be still be bikes raced in tour events on rim brakes...when they make a comeback. Of course if a name brand rider gets hacked by a disc in the peloton this year with all the riders hitting the deck, that will start the geese flying in the opposite direction back toward rim brakes sooner when once again wheel changes will be made by the side of the road versus entire bicycle.

    Disc rub is real...but wheel changes on disc brake bikes are slower anyway. With rim brake, riders on the fly can tune rub via the cam lever that opens for wheel changes.

    This is a big issue. For most of the teams the change to disc also means a change to the established rim brake wheel change procedure. Plus more risk that neutral support may not have a wheel that works. So for some teams it may not be worth the risk and better to stay with we well known entity.

    It is different however for those who don't a team car following the with spare wheels. I personally was never going to get some guy to give me a new wheel anyway so any issues with brake rub after you change wheel are moot.

    Agree that likely disc brakes are in the stone age of development. Rotor edge issue for example hasn't even been addressed.
    I believe pad centering, sticky pistons and as you say, a sure fire way to address lateral rotor position variation..there maybe a friendlier design out there over time.

    You should actually learn about these things before you speak...otherwise you only prove the low opinion people have of your knowledge.

    Indeed it is....I mean if you read cycling tech news you'd know that all the "issues" you claim are "issues" were addressed....years ago. And here you are thinking you're sticking it to the rest of us.

    Please keep it up. You're a riot.

    not sticking it to anybody. You are sticking it to yourself. I come from the world of tech. Pretty clear you don't.
