So spill the beans... what are they like to ride and do they feel different to lower profile alloy rims? :D

They abosorb the road better they're stiffer which is cool because I added Ultegra cranks a few weeks back and they're a lot stiffer than the FSA cranks that I had on there, so all in all the Cannondale got stiffer, nice to have soemthing stiff between the legs :wink:

Power output is better and easier to maintin, when you change gears the power I think seems to stay the wheel a lot better, I wasn't out on them for long today, but they're smoother, they go uphill better than my other wheels, they just feel stronger and dare I say it again... stiffer.

Well worth the money for a little bit of enjoyment I think, and they're seriously fcking hot IMHO, and as I'm not getting any I thought I should compensate myself.

I didn't do any research on them, I don't actually know what they weigh and how many KW they will save me in the long run, i don't overly care either...

If you have some spare coin one day that is allowed to be spent on anything, buy some wheels or something that you totally don't need.

I don't need them, but they make you feel really good, my bike gets more looks now, its kinda cool :mrgreen:

Man this post made sense until the above post got in first :oops:

I have Zipps (edited in for clarification)


ME TOO!!

They generally work great, otherwise I'm sure I would have had an indecency charge by now.

is this why you like that canadian clip? By the way, I'm in the market for some cranks, what did you have before? Any use in selling them? Some bastard posted me a bike with cranks 2 diff lengths. The mtb's in the workshop and I'm needing a way to get rolling.Hope you like your wheels, they look the biz

Dude you don't want used cranks, just buy new, I just had standard factory FSA on my Cannondale that went with the BB30, had to put a sleeve in to fit the Ultegra, buy the best of what you can afford on the day.

Cannondale is from the USA and so are Zipps... possibly I'm just a posuer and I like to hang with the cool kids.

Hopefully my cranks are in the bin, they had done 11000km

Sung to the tune of ZZ Top's "Legs"
She's got Zipps, and she knows how to use them ...
