I've replied on this to multiple threads, but disc brakes on daily used bikes makes alot of sense.
No rim wear - This I like the idea of - no horrible grey sludge all over the bike after wet rides
Less rotational mass - How much lighter are disc specific road rims going to be and will they more than compensate for the increased total mass of the bike?
Consistent braking performance wet or dry - Sounds good - could be interesting in group rides though when a rider in front on discs leaves braking much later because their brakes are so good!
Easier to maintain and set - Really? I find my dual-pivot brakes a doddle to set and virtually maintenance free - just turn the adjuster once in a while as the pads wear and change the pads when they're worn out .
Longer life to pads - This I like if they're not loads more expensive
Don't knock it till you've tried it...
Despite what may seem like a negative stance I am thinking of something like a Genesis Croix-de-Fer for my next commuting bike as the off-road capabilities appeal to me.
Oh, and as for the Eastway bike it just looks all wrong.
