Just got my Flo 60 front and Flo 90 rear. They look amazing. I have a Thule T2 hitch rack and was thinking of hauling the bike to my race with the race wheels on. Bad idea? I don't have a ton of room in my rig this weekend but could probably find room for the rear wheel in the car if need be.

Put them on the rack....they're wheels, not kids.

I've made ten hour drives with my race wheels on the bike on the hitch rack.  Never had any problems.  They might get a bit grimy if it rains but will still be OK.

Where are they supposed to go with all that other gear already up there. Clearly what is needed is some kind of sidecar.

Beat me to it, Clark!

 

To the OP put 'em on the rack, no big deal.  If they can't take a little force from the strap of the wheel holder then I wouldn't want to be riding on 'em!

The wheels are my first area of concern and I have started to shop around. I find it nauseating to think of spending the same amount for wheels as my bike. Any help?

Don't know how to take that rear wheel off of your bike? Is the chain making things difficult? Learn how to remove your rear wheel if you have to change your bike tire or fix a flat.

Being a fast swimmer put me up with the faster athletes. As expected, they started to pass me soon out of transition. Some would just slowly pass. Others with aero wheels would literally buzz by.
