    Disco Reads Tour Magazine, switches wheels?

    Interesting shot of Brajkovic on his TT bike at the Vuelta in Australia's Ride magazine (pg 91). Aside from the "Praying Landis" TT postition, there's a very 909 looking front wheel on the bike. Given the results from "Tour" magazines recent tests that found the 909 as having the least drag (there's been a link to the article posted here in BF), has Disco dumped the trispoke?

    I doubt they've dumped the trispoke entirely, its just that when you've got HEDs entire wheel collection to choose from they've probably realized the a Jet/Stinger 90 is probably a better choice in certain situations.

    The trispoke is faster if you're using a bike without a fork.

    Rider's have individual choice from the full range of a sponsor's equip.

    Some may prefer spokes.
