I talked to a bike shop that sells a lot of fixed/single speed bikes. I asked them if they could sell me a single speed with a disc brake on the front. The guys said no because:
- It will be hard to find a frame that supports that
- It is silly and not really needed and a waste of my money
If he is correct about the money part, then what would be a better place to put that money?
I bit of background: I commute year round, and I really like the stopping power i get on my mountain bike (with disc) during the winter / rain. I also tend to ride 20-25mph in Boston.
