Question for Akirasho(3 posts)

Question for Akirashosuperdog

I've got a GT Vengeance like yours and I am using a disc wheel on the back. The disc is too unstable in gusty cross winds so I'm considering switching to Zipp 404s front and back. I know you've got yours set up with 404s. How does your bike handle in gusty cross winds? Is it stable?
...what are you running up front? ...were you on the aeros?Akirasho

... the only appreciable problems I've experienced with gusty winds and a disc was when I was running an H3 up front (different bike). I've run the 404s under various conditions and deem them fairly stable under various winds... including cross gusts (as stable as you'd expect, depending on the strength of the gust).

Be the bike.
404 on the frontsuperdog

I've already got a 404 on the front. Just switching the rear disc to a 404 also. We get some 30 - 40 mph gusts on our course and the disc wheel just doesn't cut it. I'm hoping the 404 on the back will make it a little (lot) easier to handle.
