In the market for my next TT bike. Initially had talked myself into going with discs no questions, but looking at what is on the market right now, there seem to be some killer deals on rim break models (i.e. $1000+ dollars less, same build)
For those of you who have disc breaks on a TT bike, how much of an upgrade are they? Think they are worth the extra $$? I’m also keeping future proofing in mind at least somewhat–though it seems TT bikes are dragging behind road bikes in adopting discs.
I have to admit discs would have been nice at my two A races last year. Both where 70.3s, the first was hilly with some good descents and the second was flat but it down poured on the bike. That said, I managed both fine on my slice with rim breaks and carbon wheels.
Budget wise, I’d like to be close to $5K (less is better) and I’d like Di2.
