After I get my new bike with the aero frame, and some aerobars, Iwill be looking at aero wheels for Time Trialling. Due to the price of these wheels I will most likely be looking at second hand stuff.
Here in NZ you can pick up Spinergy RevX Carbon aero wheels as a pair for around $500NZD. A used set of trispokes set you back about $1300NZD (new Trispokes are around $1800 - $1900NZD)
I have heard some bad things about the Spinergies "exploding" and being prone to cracks and nicks in the blades. I am very wary of getting these wheels ( I will be using them for time trialling, but there are some Metric centuries etc that would suit aero wheels) I am thinking that using these for some minor road racing would be dangerous due to the high speeds? Would tri-spokes be a better all round performer?
Please let me know, as if I see a really good deal on either wheelset I might pounce on it before I even have my new bike (would that be logical?)
In the future I will also be looking at some deep rim wheels for windier conditions and all round road racing.
Edit: P.S do Spinergy still make the RevX? and would it be wise to only look at a rear RevX that still has the spoke protector on it?
