If you keep following that logic, you'll have a disc diameter of 622 mm.

Oh, wait....


I already have a brake disc diameter of 622mm. You could too. First, buy a bike with standard 622mm rims. Next, fit Magura hydraulic rim brakes (several varieties available for touring, utility and road bikes). Result, powerful but very manageable 622mm disc brakes, economical on "pads" too. Hey presto, your brakes are powerful enough to ride with Joerg.
