Easton EC90SL carbon clincher?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Easton EC90SL carbon clincher?

I currently run Mavic cosmic sls (1745g) on my Cannondale evo (16.3 lbs). I want to upgrade to a full carbon clincher that does it all and is lighter. I'm looking at the Easton ec90 sl 38mm (1530g) it would put my bike at 15.6 LBS. Is it worth it to spend the money and sell my Mavics? My main concern is loosing the aero advantage of my cosmics. I weight 133 and race about 7 crits a year, I ride 3 or 4 fast group rides a week. I like climbing and my favorite ride is going up Mnt. Baldy. I also have a set of Ksyrium equipes that I hardly use. Please help.

Have you considered getting some tubular carbon rims for racing? Keep your mavics for training? Or the Ksyriums.

Quit the math - don't worry about the decimal weight values, they're negligible. Buy them, keep a set of Mavics for pit wheels.
