Nice! I like that combo too! Will actually have both 60/90 and 60/Disc with the IA14 when it arrives. Just need to swap out the stickers to match the frame and swap out the groupset with my existing UDi2. Can't wait!

And I do prefer the Stealth Blue over the White...

Don't give up the extra speed over looks! I think discs look awesome. The white labels is just too much white. Blue looks better!

When I get to within 45 seconds of breaking 5 hours in my 70.3 races I'll throw on some wheel covers. My first 70.3 this year was completed in 5:52 so I have a long ways to go and plenty of other things I can do to shave some major time (like maintain a run for the entire 13.1 miles) 😉

You're still giving up time. Aero always works for you, no matter the speed.

Consider it 'resistance training' until I am worthy of a disc 😉

I still don't think you understand. A disc will make you faster. You don't have to go a certain speed for it to work. You don't have to be "worthy". Not using a disc when you know it's the faster option is a stupid choice.

I get mine Oct 22. I'll post pics when she arrives. Am going to get those Felt white rubber grips, the ones that have the end that rises. I hate the flat base bars as I feel as though I'm one hard bump from falling off the front of the bars.

By that logic what makes you worthy of your new bike?

That's exactly what I thought. Keqwow is buying a really fast bike but doesn't want to use a disc wheel because he's not worthy he feels like. However, if he truly hates the look of a disc and won't ride his bike because of it, then just go with the slower wheels

When will the disc myths do away?

What disc myths? Ok...so explain this to me then;
So according to FLO's website and the wind tunnel results, if I average 20 mph, the disc will save me about 47 seconds over a FLO 90 in the course of a half-ironman.

Tell me then, why so many pros were racing without a disc at the 70.3 World Championship? Why doesn't EVERYONE race with a disc in the events that allow it?

(not trying to start an argument here, just asking for my own education)

Not all races allow discs. Kona, Cozumel, and others won't let you use a disc. Also, not every pro has a wheel sponsor that has a disc wheel. You race with what they give you if you want to be paid

HED has a disc. Why would Daniella Ryf not be riding that at the 70.3 world championship. A lot of pros running Zipps so why not the disc? I am just assuming there must be more to it.

Ryfs coach, Brett Sutton, won't let women ride discs. It's a stupid decision.

He thinks they have bad ride quality. His website is full of stuff that Slowtwitch has proven wrong many times

The women or the discs? But he lets the guys ride with them? Why guys but not girls? Doesn't seem to make a difference in the case of Ryf. She could ride training wheels and still finish the bike ride with 5-7 minutes on the rest of the field.

Ryf most likely would have won Kona had she had more aero gear on the bike

She exited T2 almost 15 minutes ahead of Carfrae and Carfrae won by 2 minutes. What could she have possibly improved on aero-wise on the bike to have given her 17 minutes over 112 miles?

Deeper wheels, aero clothing, aero helmet

Aero helmet ~1.5 minutes
Disc wheel ~1.5 minutes
She wasn't in aero clothing?

Still a long way off shaving 17 minutes off her time

She had 15 minutes on Carfrae at T2. She only needed 2 minutes to win

But doesnt't the enormous surface area of both the IA frame and disc wheel make you an enormous victim to crosswinds?

Jeez!

Please tape some more shit on the IA and try some get some clothes with more wrinkles. That picture of someone loosing Kona by 2 min is way to aero for me to handle ;-)

At least the QR are pointed in an aero direction and she will get her Kona crown this year.
