Part of it is because hydraulics, and part of it is because disc, particularly the problem of squealing which is can be time-consuming and sometimes futile to address.

Most folks won't have issues, but as a mechanic I saw the bikes that had them. Usually a simple fix, but the scope for complications is huge.
