There has been a lot of technology concerning the advantages of disc brakes on road bikes. Braking in the rain and not heating the rim/tire are a couple of them. I was wondering what the feeling were of the posters here about legalizing them for professional road race use. I for one am dead set against it. Having been in criterium crashes where I have been sliced open by chain rings I can only imagine that the disc rotors will be sharp like a knife and inherently dangerous, especially for head wounds. I can see scenarios of many riders sliced practically anywhere with deep wounds that need stitches and will require them to drop out of stage races. Digit amputations are a possibility too. Am I being to much a stick in the mud. Not wanting to proceed with progress? I would like to see weight limits taken away and the anything goes for time trial bikes so I don't think so. What do you say?
