On the road, you have a better stopping surface and usually more warning. You just have to make sure the brakes are set up right and the pads work well. My stock Tekkro pads sucked balls big time. I replaced them with Shimano Ultegra pads and I could not be happier.

this. I don't miss the discs that are on my mtb on the road. Plenty of stopping power with the rim brakes.

However, you may want to consider getting a second set of wheels off craigslist etc if you're really just irritated with the putzing with tires. Should be plenty comfy that way as an upright commuter.
