Hey,


I have to decide between 2 evo, same price.
a brand new HM evo ultegra DISC 2017 (upgraded wheels -carbon 38mm disc)

vs 2016 HM evo dura ace with enve classic dt swiss 350 45 mm , about 3000 miles on everything)

what would be your choice?
one should be 2 lbs less at least....

On what sort of roads are you riding?

Lots of hills and/or rain I'd go discs.

I do not recommend 2017 disc model because of rear QR. When you are looking for Disc model, do not consider any option with QR on your shopping list.

the best option will be 2018 thru axle models.... (disc is far better than rim brakes!)

If you are heavier and like climbing go with the disc. If you are lighter then go with the nicer looking and better equipped used one.
