Thanks everyone - looks like Triathletes are far more crazy than runners - guess I'll need to find a club to get myself converted!

M...TRIumphant - yes mine is in fact the Team Comp (my mistake in title)....do you know exactly what model your brakes are?  I'll take a look at them, cheers.

Paul, I think you need to get used to the braking ability of a road bike first, and throw some decent pads in there. See how you get on. This could be a £20 spend rather than £100, to find you can't tell the difference.

I have the PX brakes on my TT bike, they're single pivot which can be a right PITA to set up (think caliper brakes on old-style BMX).

Has anyone seen the Cologna road bike with the disc brakes, apparently its the future and makes the top tube look un cluttered.

Im sure disc brakes will soon be the standard on road bikes for all the reasons put forward by pop and FB, it will lead to a radical change in wheel design. Equally now that I am riding a bike with ultegra Di2 i'm sure that electronic shifting will soon be the norm on everything. Its shifts instantly regardles of how much power you have one and never needs adjustment, in short fantastic. So good that I'm going to convert my Neil Prye Alize to Di2 as well. looking forward to disc brakes! Downside is that you won't be able to retro fit them to rim brake frames.
