It is always interesting to compare the weight of items added to our rides. Wheel covers or disc are used to make a cycle more aerodynamic. You hope that you are adding minimum weight [carbon fiber wheel disc] and getting a more efficient [increased average speed] ride.
Six carbon fiber discs [wheel covers (below)] were shipped today. I have removed the wheels to prepare them for the covers. I have to remove the rotors from the front wheels and the cassette from the rear wheel, then clean the mounting surfaces. The wheels will then be ready for me to mount the covers. Pictures soon…
Albeit brief, I used my 5200 to return home after dropping off my van for service: 0802251210Home2StewartTire&Auto
My Project One in at the LBS for service.
I will likely use it to go back to pick it up, depending on time of day.
Since I am not able to transport my trike to a “safe” ride area because my van is being serviced, I decided to remove Silk’s wheels [below]. In addition, my Trek Project One is also being serviced because I will take it to Florida. So, today I rode my old standby–My Trek 5200 and will likely ride it tomorrow as I go to pick up my van.
