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.
I know what you mean. We've got some pretty serious climbs around here. Some of the hills have slopes of as much as 1%, and it's pretty scary coming down them.
