Given the thread about the disc equipped Colnago in the news section, I am sure opinion will be somewhat divided as whether or not this a road (excuse the pun) the UCI should or even will go down.
The technology makes sense (anyone with hydro discs on their mtb will verify I am sure) but, for me ay least, there is an element of spoiling the classic look of a road bike.
However, where does this leave the huge volume of current bikes? Some of which are not exactly cheap. So if you are / were about to spend a fair wedge of cash on your next machine would this possible development cause you to hold fire?
How will this effect prices of current bike shop stock?
When the move to discs happened in the mtb world there was the trickle down of technology but as the sport was and is a technology arms fest and without the long years of tradition to baulk against it was far easier(or at least it seems) to make the transition.
Just interested in your thoughts...
