Yeah, I can lock the front wheel on my /2, but that's not, IMHO, the measure of a good braking system. An ability to resist fade, wet weather and better modulation would be my goals for a disc setup.
Don't forget they're less aero too! Added weight. Added complexity. Slower.
What's NOT to like on a road bike?!
