- The ship has sailed in the mainstream market. If you can't see that, then you truly are blinded by conviction. Answer me this, will more mainstream models from the big brands be going exclusively disc in 2020, 2021, 2022, etc. or do you think rim-brake models will be reintroduced?
- I'm saying that marketing will of course highlight disc advantages and not mention the cons. Don't corrupt that statement into something else....that's a snivelly tactic. I'm definitely not saying there are no cons at all.
- The brands aren't going to cater to 1) a dying category whose main target audience is 2) not getting any younger. The brands are going after the low-hanging fruit such as the women's market...you know, >50% of the world population, but <15% of the recreational cycling population. They're going after brand new customers, not old grumps who don't really know what they're demanding.
- I'm not accusing you of anything other than being naive...and now lashing out like a cornered animal.
Now when you get called out, do you come out to qualify that the ship which has sailed is from the mainstream markets, since when were the high end spandex wearing dentist types considered as the mainstream market? if you said the high end market, I would still give it to you but that market is certainly not mainstream.
You say that marketing only extols the virtues and not the cons of discs and that I have corrupted your statement, did I not ask directly how do you qualify disc brakes are better and the reply was simply that "they just are" aren't you implying that there was only one answer and no others, now who is using snivelly tactics?
Speaking of old grumps, when did you adopt hydro disc brakes on road bikes?
