|A question for some of you guys with a lot of time trialing experience: under windy conditions, but on a flat course, at what point is it better to go with a conventional rear wheel rather than a disk?|

|I've ridden a disk on double century (training) time trials and all over the southern California desert in the 508 team race, with notoriously strong winds, with no problem. I almost think the bike handles *better* with a disk. This was on a Cervelo P3 with a 404 up front.
If it were gusty and wet, that might be another thing.
Just my personal experience, and I'm sure YMMV.

|I've been asked this repeatedly over the seasons and I always say that I've had ZERO problems with a rear disk. Now a front Trispoke is another thing completely...|| |
