Did they put any type of markings or features on the front wheel so Jan (or his mechanic, or his brother) doesn't put it in backwards?
I thought his brother was his mechanic?
Not that he really needs wheels or a mechanic at the moment...
Yeah, his brother is his mechanic.
Anyways, back to the wheels, yeah deeper is better, of course, but I guess my question is, so the old Xentis wheels were bad in side wind I guess, woudl the deeperness(new word) of these help that? Xentis says is saves 4 more watts, but I just wonder about it's performance in side wind. Anyways, it's late so I hope all of that makes sence.
My response to claims like that is: "Under what conditions?" I always come back to a quote from an old co-worker..."Show me the data!".
As we've seen in some recent discussions, aerodynamic performance under various yaw angles (and how it's reported) can be very important in equipment selection decisions.
yes, yes, of course, I obviously didn't impart my skepticism of their claims well enough. If it saves 4 watts or not really dosen't matter to me, it's the increase of usefullness at different yaw angles. I've never ridden a tt where the wind was comming head on the entire time.
