Wheel weight vs aero benefit and spoke count
Kinda thinking about wheels (not really any time soon). Assuming a 50mm (1755g) set and a 88mm (2147g ) set are the same price (Planet-X) would the aero benefit of the 88mm be greater than the weight benefit of a 50mm? Also, for outdoor track use, would something as deep as an 88mm give me troubles if the wind picks up?
Side question, I know there's a ton of info on RBR about the ebay china carbon wheels, but do is anyone personally using these, or know of somebody who is?
One more: Is a 24H rear enough for track use? (Assuming a carbon wheel)
