comment How long should brake pads last?
@Carel - Totally. Brake pads can last for a VERY long time. I just wanted to provide a lower bound on how long they could last. The brake pads on my summer bikes typically last for years.

comment What are the practical limitations of a road bike compared to a mountain bike?
The biggest issue I have hit with road bikes is that usually your riding position is much lower and more stretched out. This makes it much more difficult to loft the front end. Shortening your stem, will do wonders to speed up the bike and make it more agile.

comment What is the practical advantage of disk brakes over rim brakes?
In terms of longevity, I think it depends. Riding dirty, salty roads, my rim brakes don't last a season whereas disks usually last two.

comment What is the practical advantage of disk brakes over rim brakes?
One other thing to add is that when they do get wet/dirty/sandy, they are much easier to clear. Clearing and entire wheel and keeping it clear (via braking) is much harder (more force) than clearing just a small disk.
