Disc brakes vs rim brakes - where do we stand?

One of the reasons I'm tempted by the bike in my previous post is because I keep thinking it may be time to switch. Riding in the torrential rain this morning - and feeling the impact on my braking efficiency - reinforced this view, unlike I was riding alongside someone with disc brakes that were making an awful squealing noise. I'm really not sure I could put up with that.

One thing about rim brakes - they mean you can run tyres as wide as you like - which I think is the reason that bike has them. And that, in turn, means more comfort and more opportunity to go where you like.

You mean disc, not rim - but yes, that's an attraction too. I can't run wider than 25mm. And the other attraction is your wheels last longer as you don't wear out the rims.

Yeah sorry, disc.
I have a disc brake on the front wheel of my Orbea, now. They do stop you well. I'm finding it harder to adjust, but probably because I've never done it before.
The wider tyre, the better, in my view.

That really reminds me of that Creme Echo Laguna I was seriously lusting over on here a few years back.

Beautiful.

Anyone interested in a possible Palace related charity ride in the spring, drop me a PM.

Anyway... over the last month my left hip has really started to hurt to the point I can't put any weight on my left leg, even to put my trousers on. I really didn't associate it with riding the bike, as I feel no pain when riding, and in my mind it would be loosening things up, whatever the problem is.

After some research, and self diagnosing, I'm pretty sure it's Trochanteric Bursitis. And apparently one of the major causes is riding a bike! The repetitive motion apparently.

I plan on seeing a doctor soon, but I really find this hard to believe (or don't want to believe) as cycling is one of the last remaining forms of exercise I enjoy, as well as the solitude that comes with the ride.

Anyone else had hip problems after riding?
Have you had a bike fit? I've noticed a lot of my knee pains we've once I had one. They also noticed that I cycled with my knees slightly out which inflamed right knee and left hamstring. So I've corrected this.
