Ironman 70.3 Mallorca on 60/60 setup?

Postby CrossCombo » April 5th, 2015, 2:19 pm

Hello,

I'm participating in the Ironman 70.3 Mallorca this year and wondering if I should use my 60/60 FLO wheels or stick to my low rims Mavic Elite wheels instead. It's "only" one big climb for about 10 km that is bothering me. My plan is to use my road bike, I weigh 70 kg with an FTP of ~260 and is a decent climber.
What do you guys think?

I will be on my 60/disk. I'm a poor/average climber with 265FTP but 84kg. The climb up to Lluc is a long drag but never steep. The descent is tricky but the rest is a great time trialling course.

I'd say go with the 60's

I hear you. Then I'll stick to my 60's.

See you at the top! :-)

Without a doubt, I'd ride the FLO 60s.

Best of luck at your race.
