|anyone have some good imput(experience or knowledge) on using a hed 3 trispoke wheelset(or front wheel only) in criteriums?
ya see a lot of spinergy rev-x, but not many hed 3's in the field. seems like the hed 3 would be a fine choice for a non windy crit race.

|I have no direct knowledge- so feel free to disregard anything I might offer...
Granted, the "spokes" possess much of the weight.
Having seen the HED "factory," I'm a bit freaked at the prospect of "truing" a tri-spoke wheel- not to mention balance issues.
I know what happens when I assume, but I'd expect to see all sorts of pros using them if there was anything to be gained from their use.

|I've used the rear Specialized TriSpoke in both crits and road races. Not a big deal. I've only used the front in TTs because of the succeptablility to cross winds. I know there are some VERY accomplished riders inthis area that have used the combo in crits (Carey Farrell, Mike Eddy, Dan Norton). I doubt any of these guys frequent this forum, however. Sorry, can't give you any first-hand advice.|| |
