Anyone have any experience with these wheels. Am thinking about picking up a set for TT use. No reviews that I could find, has anyone used them and have anything to report?

Also, should I get a pair of the tri spokes, or just one for the front and a disk for the back. Might have to wait a little longer for the latter ($).

Thanks

I ran a pair of tri spokes on my Aegis Trident until I "retired" from racing. For 2 years of training and racing, they
were great wheels. They are a little heavy. But that is more than made up for because they are SO aerodynamic. To take advantage of the aero, you need to be at or above about 20mph. I never had an once of problems with these wheels. Two thumbs up!
Keep the rubber side down!

ditto... still one of the most aero wheelsets, composite or spoked, on the market... watch out though... HED is coming out with a ligher and more expensive version.

true dat... you'll need to maintain a minimum of 20+ (preferrably 24+) to reap the most aero benefit (over flat to flat to rolling terrain... though some use them for crits).

Be the bike.

VERY nice wheels. I have a set of the Specialized version from a while back (1993?). No complaints.

If you like to have a set of the HED Tri-Spoke wheels. I have a demo set I'm selling. Not my cup of tea.
