No, wait. I got it - because I want a leg up on racing you!
That's crazy talk. If you are on 30/50 now then you can probably handle the 60/90s. I'm on 60/90 and do just fine - and I ride them constantly on the wind whipped coast. Sure, I get pushed around some, but if you know how to ride them it is fine.
Unless you weigh 75 pounds and will blow away?

Your trip is short. Make the most of it.
I am a 5'4"/118 lb female, and I have ridden my new 55's Vison Metrons and boyfriend's 60/90 combo each a few times (on my XS Shiv). Personally, the 60/90 combo were fine when it was dead still out, but the second there was a little gust, I was fighting a bit. Similarly, there was a course I did that had a lot of turns (going through the a college campus on bike paths) and I hated how heavy the rear wheel was. I chose the Metrons because they had more predictable handling than say, the Boyds, both due to the shape and depth. Also keep in mind the courses you will be racing-Flo's (especially that 90) are on the heavier side of wheels, so it may get to you on hilly courses.
