Looking for some help deciding on the optimal wheel set-up I should use for races this year.
I was not in the market for new race wheels, but basically stumbled into a dirt cheap deal for a set of HED H3 clinchers.
Right now I am racing on a set of chinese carbon clinchers that are about 60mm+ front and back.
I am guessing that my ideal set-up would be to pick up a disc cover for the rear 60mm and run the H3 in the front.
A couple questions that I wanted to pose to the forum:
- Despite the rear wheel being an open mold Chinese wheel, would slapping a cover on it still make it faster than just running the rear H3?
- I am set on running the front H3 all the time, but with those wheels being a bit narrow (19mm), am I best served picking up a Conti GPSII in a 20 instead of the typical 23 I run?
Thanks for any input in advance, and sorry to stoop to the low of posting an actual triathlon gear related post!
I am hoping to come to some conclusion where I can end up selling some combo of wheels if I determine I may not ride them much or ever.
