Hey,

I Have 2 discs now but I can't deciede what disc to use this weekend in de EC TT.

The first is my own disc: Mavic comete clincher
I think it is of the year 2002 so it is already 10 years old but the hub is still running verry well.
Verry stiff disc.
weight: 1300g

The second disc I can use of a friend: HED Stinger FR Disc (tubulair)
It is the 2012 or 2011 disc only had 5TT's so still new.
It is a 90mm spoked wheel but has wheel covers.
Tony Martin used this disc on the WC last year.
less stiff
weight: 1153g

What is the course like for this TT? I would be inclined to go with the HED due to the more aerodynamic shape and also lighter, especially if it's hilly. I think the Mavic would be fine too, they are great for flat and fast courses, but my guess is the HED would be a bit quicker.

HED Stinger is very fast, stiff enough for me doing 45Kmh+ avg timetrials. As you said, it is already stiff wheel that has been stiffened by adding a cover.

If you already have these two discs, race HED, sell the Mavic and go for a vacation trip for you and your girl at the end of the season.

If that's with turnaround, why are you not on pro ranks?

beacaus the pros do 50kmH+ TT's over 50k. I'm still in the U23category. most of the TT's are only 25km, but on a fast track the winners do 50kmH...
