Thinking of pulling the trigger on the new Reynolds Aero wheels. They seem to be pretty cool, and a tad cheaper than Enve's.

Most of my riding on these wheels will be races on flatter courses, with some rolling hills, corners and such. 80-120 km's, and will also be using the front wheel for time trialling.

The big question is wheather I should go for the 58 which is similar to the Zipp 404 wheels, or get the 58/72 combo which is more in line with the Enve 6.7's?

Pros and cons?

Given your weight is over your rear and you're not a small rider I see no reason to not take the 58/72 combo.

What is the weight difference? I'm going to err on the side of the 58's, unless the weight difference isn't big.

Given the terrain, aero will trump weight.

This has been covered ad nauseum on here.
