Which Aero time trial wheels?
edited March 2010
Can anyone give me some advise on buying some good wheels for Time Trailing. I use clinchers at the moment so am thinking of changing to "Tub's"
Still going at fifty!But for how mutch longer
ZIPP 808 F
ZIPP 900 DISC B
constantly reavalueating the situation and altering the perceived parameters accordingly
HED Jets 60 front 90 rear, or a disk
I'd stick with clinchers (the HED clinchers are nice and light and bomb-proof, unlike the ZIPP's where you need to go with tubs to keep the weight down)
Upgrade to Flamme Rouge option if you have money to burn.
If you have the funds, any rear disc is a good option. Zipp, Hed, Corima, Reynolds, FFWD - they all make decent rear discs.
A deep section front (like a Zipp 404 or 808) is good also.
Depends if you want the wheels JUST for a TT bike - but also for a road bike. (I use a Zipp disc and 404 front - and the 404 goes on my road bike also).
Last year I used a Zipp 808 rear and 404 front on both my TT and road bike for racing.
I've got Planet X 82/101 combo and they seem really well made/fast.
