Might be the first bike i like the new Shimano rotors on. The rims are too deep for my taste, but it's pretty badass looking nontheless.

Looks great (if heavy) - but surely you’d spin out with a 50T on an aero bike with 80mm rims?

With 50/11 at 90 rpm you reach over 50 km/h. I'm not a pro so that's enough for me.

How is the handling of the 80mm compared to 50mm or 60mm?

Until now I don't feel a real difference in handling between my 404s and the 80 DT Swiss.

Can I pls ask how do the rotors go with the sram break pads? I tried them on my winter bike (endurace) and I got an histherical turkey every time I touched the breaks, wish sram rotors all good :(
Cheers,

I've heard some horror stories from my LBS about the tendency of Shimano rotors to get tweaked easily.
They said they adjust these for customers regularly and the final solution they recommend is switching to SRAM rotors.

There doesn't seem to be any argument that they have less heat capacity/shedding ability but to my mind that just means you need a different pad compound for intense downhill type use versus flat land use.

I am asking same question. Especially on cross winds...

I am heavy rider (88 kg) but sometimes cross winds on 60 mm wide wheels I have on my Bianchi Oltre XR4 looks too much.

Aeroads are always yummy BUT - if you're "not a pro" why would you put 80mm rims on? :wink: those wheels look too deep combined with discs (which alone look stupid) and then again - 50t? come on :!:

yea all the ice tech ones bend pretty easily because they are mostly aluminium. it isn't that hard to get/keep them straight though. if you are reasonably competent and semi-careful it isn't that big of a deal.

i mean nobody cruises around solo at that speed. pro or not. all this means is a very minor drive train efficiency hit. i race (admittedly at least semi-hilly circuit races) on one and spinning it isn't a problem. if you are going fast enough that you spin out 50/11 at 100 rpm sit on your top tube.

when the aeroad that i want is finally available in my size i'll put a compact on it i expect (and probably an 11-32!). steep hills + cobbles/crappy pavement + a non-ultralight bike + i am not always smashing the thing.
