Wind and different wheels

Postby stevemurf1 » March 8th, 2012, 8:34 am

First of all I think what the "Flo Bros" are doing is awesome. Obviously not just trying to make a buck but really trying to create a company to help the triathlon world (and I hope they do make a few bucks).
Anyways, I have never ridden deep wheels or disks. I am very light (5'9" about 135lbs). I ordered a set of 60/60's and will be ordering a disk cover as well. So for those that are light and have experience with disks/covers my questions is - will I be able to use the cover the majority of the time or will I get blown all over the road?

Disks on the back increase stability. It's the 60 on the front you should be nervous about.

But it's no 90 ;)

Not to argue but why would they not allow disks for all races then. High wind courses such as Kona do not allow disks.

Thanks Chris, this answers alot for me. I always figured because of my weight, a disk would cause me too many problems. I can't wait to use my flo 60's with a cover and see how it goes.
