60 vs 90

Postby JDalzell » April 22nd, 2012, 1:31 pm

From your aero data charts am I correct in thinking that the only time I would prefer to ride your 90mm wheel is when yaw is above 20? Also, if I can only spend money for 2 wheels and not riding Kona, I would be best spending money for the 60 and your disc?

Thanks for your awesome explanations of aerodynamics on your website, clarifies much for non-engineering types like myself. Looking forward to your 2nd sales cycle come June-July.

Thanks for the through explanation. I' m a time trialist who averages greater than 24 mph average speed for my events, cross winds don't bother me too much. I train using 32 spoke Mavic open pros so using your wheels for training is not an issue. Currently TT with an older HED Stinger 9 and Zipp 900 disc rear. (both tubulars). The stinger is nice and it is fast, and it is well made. But I still can't figure out what conditions it works best for and really don't think it's a huge step faster than the HED Tri-Spoke. I've had a love hate relationship with the Zipp 900 for years, so looking to upgrade. Switching brake pads gets old fast so also looking to make my life simpler. It sound like your 90 and disc are what I should consider. Thanks!
