Salsa Road Bike with Disc Brakes

I really like Salsa bikes and I still do not get why road bikes do not have disc brakes . Salsa just announced a sweet Ti bike with Discs. The weight savings with standard brakes can't be that dramatic. Take a look at this great bike.

The road specific carbon fork was developed by Enve for Salsa for 140mm rotors (with cable actuated disc brakes). The Colossal sports Hed Belgium rims (blacked out w/new graphics). The rotors are SRAM HSX Centerlock rotors. The frame is double-butted seamless 3/2.5 ti. The tubes are shaped for the chainstays and seatstays to provide a smooth ride.
