    has anyone tried aeroxl disc wheel for $99.00

    i saw an ebay listing for aeroxl rear disc wheel. has anyone tried that wheel? i saw there website at www.aeroxl.com. it looks like they put fabric over the wheel. i guess that would be aerodynamic.

    Seems like a good idea but IMO (and many others here) www.wheelbuilder.com 's disc is a better idea. Its solid plastic and removeable so you can still use the wheel as a regular wheel. Plus its cheaper.

    does not really seem very aerodynamic if the fabric can ripple at all in the wind it would be less aerodynamic than a normal wheel, and fabric generally has i higher drag coefficient than plastic or carbon, plus good luck filling up your tires.
