    Hey all,

    I have a quick question. Someone in my club is selling a set of Carbon Aero Wheels. 88mm in the rear and 50mm in the front. Should I go for them? Is it worth it? I am currently riding on a Giant TCR Advanced (full carbon).


    Thanks,

    Matador

    looking at picking some 55mm depth wheels for general riding but was a bit peturbed by the possibility of picking up too much speed on downhills and crosswinds etc. also looking at a set of 45mm. have semi rule out 35mm as not sure really worth investing serious coin if the gains aren't that much compared to a shallow rim. I also live in newcastle and tend to do sportives like the cyclone, wooler wheel etc.
