what's the deal with disc brakes on road bikes? They've only been around a short while, but part of me thinks "about time". But holy shit they're expensive, I was looking at an Orbea Avant for $2300, and the disc option brings that bike to $3200.

one of our admins is leaving, so they decided to do 5 PM cookies and champagne toast. Well I wasn't aware of this, and at 4:59 I go to take a big dump. I'm walking back 15 minutes later and everybody is gathered and is all "There he is!!! Gome, where were you?!? We were waiting for you!!"
I see what you did there.
