I have 90mm carbon wheels (front and rear) that I use on my TT bike for Triathlons. I know the major set back with deep carbon wheels is handling, but I’ve ridden the 90mm’s in some pretty nasty cross winds on my tri bike, and have felt comfortable using them.
My question: is 90mm too deep to use on my road bike for flat crits/road races/ group rides? I’m not sure what the protocol or etiquette is in terms of wheel depth. I see a lot of road bikes with deep carbon wheels, maybe 60mm or so, but rarely see anything as deep as 90.
What are your thoughts, and thanks in advance!
