WTB: fastest front wheel you’ve got (rim brake)
Quote | Reply
Looking for a front wheel, rim brake, for upcoming TT. I ride an old P2, so needs to be a somewhat narrow wheel

Whatcha got? Zipp 808, flo 90, HED Tri-spoke or anything similar you can convince me is fast for a 40k

a wheel is only as fast, or as slow, as the tire you mount on it, the frame you put it in, the conditions you're riding in, and your comfort level riding in the aero position with deep wheels. To begin to recommend a wheel for you, we'd need a lot more info, some of which is unknowable.

I’m aiming for 48:XX for a flat 40k. I’ve never ridden a 90mm front, but don’t have any concerns w that from a handling POV

I run latex tubes and a veloflex tire. My bike is a 2011 p2 and Cda is ~0.2

Ask Dan. I know they had some HED wheels available, and I think a 90?

I already have a rear disc, and he isn’t selling a rim brake, front wheel only

I have an H3 with a stock of near-new 20mm conti supersonic tires.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this is a fast combo. See http://bikeblather.blogspot.com/...ng-caught-up-ii.html for somewhat contemporary findings. PM if you’re interested.




PM If interested!

I have a Zipp 808 Firecrest Carbon Clincher front wheel. No Zipp logo stickers, just the Firecrest Logo and 808 next to the Z.
I do have a set of decals to apply if needed.
