Hasn't happened yet, nor will it in the next 3-5 years. I liken adding discs to sub 1 kilo frames and forks to the first bicycle with true rear derailleurs. For wet, mucky, touring, cross, tandems, great idea. For that 15 pound weekend warrior tool, an answer to a not asked question but like road tubeless, gonna happen, whether it's a good idea or not. Redesigned forks, frames, hubs(gonna be 135 rear, I'll bet), calipers, rotors, rims...blah+.

OBTW-I have a disc now, 622mm, using a Campagnolo rubber compound as disc material, and  small, aluminum  calipers.

Everything is going 135.  The current 130mm road spacing is going die off just like 126 did.  Disk is coming sooner than you'd like.  I know your opinion both on and off the boards, but...... less than 3 years the UCI will make it road legal.  A prediction, you know me well though, 3 years or less from now, that's my call, we'll see.   ;)
