    Wheel Upgrade Comparison

    Hi everyone. I am looking to upgrade my rear wheel on my road bike and was looking for some feedback. My road bike is a 10 speed with Shimano 105s. I narrowed it down to two Bontrager Wheels that are in my budget.

    1. Bontrager Race TRL Wheel

    2. Bontrager Race Lite Aero Wheel

    One difference between the two is $40, #2 being more expensive. The second also has 8 less spokes than the first.

    Some information that might help to know: I am not into racing yet, but I next month I will be starting a racing class for beginners at a velodrome. I have been road biking for 3 years but just on my own on trails. I thought it would be fun to start participating in racing.
