Least you will have something to blame if it doesn't work out.

Eek! Gotta get the training happening. Got diverted to a hike around Whyalla this weekend. Good long walk, but it doesn't replace decent ride and run.

Thinking of getting a cover of disk covers for my Reynolds Strike 66' from www.wheelbuilder.com. Pretty affordable at approx $100.

 

Cairns IM is my one and only goal this year, and looks a pretty flat and undulating course other than the climb.

 

Anyone have experience with disk wheels on the Cairns IM course?

I used a disk last year, first and only time I have used a disk and it was great. It's only that I got a set of enve 8.9 that I dont use the disk anymore.

What sort of time savings did you see? Any affect from the wind?

Was there any effect on the Rex's lookout climb? I've heard that it's not really that much of a hill....?

I have no idea re time saving.

 

No issues with wind i felt steadier with the disc than i ever have.

 

Not much of a hill, its a tri course we dont race on hills...

Yeah would be pretty difficult to train on them for a longer period. I'm thinking maybe a 30-40km time trial just to get the hang of them...

Was chatting to PJ the other day. He said he was going to do it fast. (Not just validate)

Based on recent results his first priority should be making it to the finish line - fast or not.

Go the disk in any race your allowed to

ALLWAYS faster , and very stable, it's the front wheel depth that effects the bike handling 95% of the time

 

Rex's is a solid climb espually on the second time over ,and always into the head wind back into town but it's not long

Surface is great so again another plus for the disk

now it's the AP champs, extra slots to kona plus extra 30 slots for Japanese athletes I'd be surprised if it didnt. I think it is very close already.

But you'll be at the younger end of your age group which is great!
