V brakes get a bad rap mostly because current bikes using them are equipped with bottom of the barrel quality callipers and brake levers. Good v brakes work extremely well, far better in fact than cheap cable operated disc brakes. before embarking on a very expensive upgrade to a single front disc brake, look into a very simple upgrade of the brakes you currently have
