Hi all,

What a nightmare. Settled on the Secteur for its comfort and speed, but lost on which one to get. I think that I'm going for the disc model as... I'd like discs to save rims and I've never had too much luck with rim brakes.

Help! What are the pros and cons of each? They're the same price... Anyone know the weight of them?

Do you own either? BOTH?

    I own the disc and commute daily in London. For me its the perfect bike for the job.

    Recently upgraded to the disc from an older sport. You get better components on the Elite (Tiagra rather than Sora) but for me that was a non issue. The practicality of the commuting bike having discs was the clincher. if there hadnt been a disc version i would have taken the elite.
