Will you ever go disc?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Have you tried to read his rants? I was going to respond to a few of them, but there was so much BS in them, that I didn't know where to start.

My next Ti bike will be disc if the vortex ever fails. I like having disc brakes with a carbon wheel set...less wear on the wheel track and you don't have to worry about the carbon heating up too much on a long descent. Plus there isn't that much weight penalty if you go with the newest ulegra or better group set. Other than that though I think regular brakes are fine for what I do, so long as they are properly set up and you are using the proper pads for a carbon wheel set.
