I keep seeing these things at the back of the Excel Sports Catalog.. Are they worth their 50 bucks?? They are pretty heavy at 540 gms.. if you put that on top of the rear wheel weight, you'd think that would overwhelm the aero advantage.. Anyone out there use'm in back on TT's??

then try one. if you plan on doin more than 2 TT's a year not, but an aero rear wheel or a disc. you can get a renn disc for $300 or so or even a used 8 sp Hed for under $200. You dont need more than 8 speeds for a TT

my teammate had one. POS.

I usally ride 5 local TT's a year.. basically 3 20k's and 2 40k's. Occasionally I'll travel for one but that's all we have available here. I enjoy them. Riding cat 5, I finished in the top 5 overall in the two 40k TT's last year riding zipp 303's. If I can find a cheap way to get an effective rear disc I will get it, but its not worth spending a ton.. maybe I'll look on ebay..
