Ok everyone, I’m mainly a long distance triathlete, but absolutely love the different aspects of crit racing. getting my dream road bike this year (Madone SLR Disc and wondering if I go with the Bontrager Aeolous XXX4 or XXX 6? difference in weight is about 4oz for the set between 4’s and 6’s. Thoughts? I’m 6’1, 165 lbs, 280-300FTP in race form. Handling deep wheels is not an issue as I run HED 9’s all season no matter the wind without any issues.
Given my long distance background, sprinting is not really my strength, more TTing off the front would be my current best tool. I lean towards the 6, but that’s primarily because of my long distance tri background and emphasis on aero. woudn’t say it’s very hilly here in the Chicago burbs either, mostly flat.
Thanks in advance,
