Retro-Grouch Alert

I got all excited when I saw GT has a new single speed for the masses, the “Peace”. Skipping the smart ass comments about the name, I’m not sure I understand the reasoning behind it’s stock build.

Here is a picture and the specs. If you’re not going to put suspension on the thing, why do disc brakes? Lack of braking power was never an issue for me while single-speeding (grunting in agony was, but that’s a different story). The whole retro-grouch thing doesn’t hold water with those brakes on. Pick a theme and stick with it. GT, gimme a simpler one, or one with suspension, and I’ll run out and pick one up.
