Has anyone changed their rim brakes to disc brakes on their roadie ?

I don't think there is any frame that will allow you to do that. 

You need mounting holes in the frame/ fork to mount the disc brake calipers to.

With enough gaffer tape and cable ties you can do anything.

Don’t listen to the haters flanman. You can do anything you like....

no holes in your frame or fork? Just drill em yourself. If you want to route the cable internal just drill a few more holes so it looks clean. 

Easy job if you ask me.

Guys, we've put a man on the moon (or so they would have us believe) so of course you can.

 

Seriously though, yes, but be careful clamping the adaptors on to carbon. :)
