Yes, I know that carbon clinchers are heavier than their tubular counterparts, and that the braketrack is not as "safe" as tubulars, but I like to have equipment that I can use on an everyday basis, and it's easier for me to change a tube, than it is to change a tubular(also cheaper).
So I was looking to buy a set of used Zipp 404 Firecrests as they seem to be very aero, and not that heavy. However, I read in a couple of reviews that the rear wheel is not that stiff, and that some have had brakepad rubbing occur during acceleration. As I'm a sprinter type at 76 kgs, I don't want a rear wheel that's too soft. So is it something to worry about, or is it just people who have a 1 mm clearance on their brakepads?
The wheels will primarily be used for racing(flatter cirquits - 60-100 km road races, time trials), but also for training in the same environment.
What other good carbon clincher options are out there that seem to have a good aero advantage?We have a thread for thisviewtopic.php?p=959275#p959275in the Road forum indexviewtopic.php?f=3&t=108553please, use search
