am i right in assuming that the new VR 60 will only be the front wheel...

http://lightweight.info/en/en/fernweg

if they made a 60mm rear it would solve my bora 50/zipp 404 dilemma....

I'm sorry, are you serious?

What do you think 16/20 means? And 685/795, and FW/BW?

They are only front wheel (at the moment). Seem to be meant to be used with the Fernweg 80 back wheel.

If you are serious about them, maybe write an email to Lightweight and see if they will build you a Fernweg 60 back wheel. Worst case, they will just say no.

Would love to know how they compare against current top end aero wheels.

Yeah, I noticed the rim depth. But those specs where the ones showing up, when I pressed the Fernweg 60 VG rear wheel link. There must be something wrong with their webpage.

The 60 mm wheels is only avaialble as a front at the moment. It is designed to be paired with the 80mm rear.

Big/little works, too, all the cool kids are doing it.

I'd just run the 80 on the rear. Rim depth on the rear has no real effect on handling and is basically immune to crosswinds.

I sent myself this question to Lightweight mid-July... a few days later I got a reply but they only asked me where I live and that was it, since then no news !

I got the reply. It's only the front wheel and the idea is to be used with the 80mm rear or disc.
