so recently, i have been contemplating the move to powertap. in trying to decide which rim to use (for training and racing), i came across the felt ttr3 wheel which comes on felt b12's and s22's. they are only 24/20 spokes, but according to sd on slowtwitch, have survived a season of cyclocross. also according to sd, the wheels are really aero, scoring better at multiple yaw angles than "any spoked wheel from a certain french company." the problem - weight. i have heard these things weigh 1880g up to 2200g. worse case scenario, i scrap the rear hub, install a pt 2.4, and we are looking at a 2400ish wheelset! that's around 2 pounds if extra weight over my current ssc sl's.
okay, i am not that big of a weight weenie. i realize that aero trumps weight in most circumstances. i am not too concerned with rotational inertia (on analytic cycling, even if i exaggerate the numbers of moment of inertia and wheel weight, the difference between standard and test wheel on criterium corner is .02s). my big concern is that my strength is hilltop finishes, and an extra 1.5 to 2 lbs is pretty big. (and just to avoid it later, i am at race weight already, and will not be able to train the 1.5 pounds off of my body; 6'3, 147.)
so, thoughts? experiences?
