They also let you run a bigger handlebar bag if you're into that. Another con is that there are no "ultralight" flared bars yet (sub 200g)

It might need a truing if you inadvertently impact the disk against a boulder or something. Promax Mechanical will probably make you hate disc brakes if you don't maintain it properly.
