I'm pretty certain that next investment will be a Renn 575 disc (with Campy hub of course) :) but what about the front wheel? I'd like something that is aero, but not too wind sensitive (as I'm certain the disc will push me around enough..)
My training wheels are Formula Xero XR-1 which works for me. I know that these wheels sometimes get a bad rep., but I'm only 155lbs (and dropping), so it's not much of an issue...

I wonder why :D
Seriously though, they said if I chose zipps over this wheel I was nuts.

Nimbles look to be pretty sweet.

Thanks for the ideas... The Nimbles do look interesting and not too expensive. The Reynolds are of course super nice, but I don't know about the price... Almost $2000 for a pair of clinchers!!!!
I do like the look of the Mavic Cosmic Carbone, but they are HEAVY... Zipp 404's could be an option... HED is fairly cheap, but there seems to be a question of quality. Campagnolo Bora would be sweet, but I'm a normal working person, not the Trump... Have I missed any?

this should help you out

Thanks. Do appreciate the help. May just stick with the disc for the first ones next year and then look into a aero front (whichever that turns out to be..). Can't really make up my mind and I don't want to spend a fortune on a front wheel that I won't like...
