 An...aerodynamic...front wheel...
I screwed up and got a stick caught in my front Enve coming out of the woods after a break today. I need a new front wheel--rim brake and preferably clincher or tubeless. For those of you who don't know, I'm a total equipment n00b, but all I know is that deeper and wider is more aerodynamic and that's most of what I care about.

Right now my options are:
-Go to Enve and push them to honor the lifetime loyalty warranty, and get a new Enve 4.5 for ~$600 (plus shipping?) in a few weeks...
-Get a CLX50 (front only) from Landry's with team discount...
-Source used from friends/team/the New England bike network...

Are any of you trying to offload a quality aero front rim-brake wheel?

Having a non-matching front and rear wheel is worth -25w to the cycling gods. You know what to do.

I'd check out Enve's crash replacement or ebay it. Always be matching.

If you just need something for this weekend, I have a CL60 you can use.

You can get a set of tubeless NEXT 55R wheels for 750-800 dollars.. These are CCB wheels from last year. I just got a set and they show very light use and Jerry honors great replacement/customer service for his customers.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies and tips. I think I'm going to go with the option of replacing through Enve and borrowing a spare race wheel from Nick the next couple weekends in the interim.
