That says it all. Besides, how much braking force can those skinny tires road bikes are equipped with handle? Pumped up to 120 psi, there's not much of a contact patch there.
I dont know what sort of road dual pivots they are using, but my road bike brakes SUCK, and i paid decent money for em, dual pivot, upper middle range shimano.... My mtb discs however can stop me on a dime (and i would be laying on my back on top of the dime from the front flip induced by the brakes...LOL) so im not convinced with thier logic... I can skid my front tire on my mtb (a ritchey pro comp premonition in a 26x2.2 size) but i can barely break loose my 23c road tire on the back of my roadie....
