New 303 training wheels.
Should I remove the zipp stickers?

Love the wheels pawnii. Sets the frame off perfectly. Keep the stickers on there. The Zipp name will have all drooling :lol:

Training wheels :lol: ... lucky bugger 8) .
Nah leave the stickers on... I have a soft spot for Foils, I think they look freakin fast!.

But that Look... eek, that is hideous, but mainly because of the wheels. I love the Brazil paint job they do though in that model... they probably do an Aussie one too?. Everyone in my club rides them as we get a lot of cast off Cofidis ones... they do nothing for me though. That might change when I become a French passport holder :P .

Opps, too late. I couldn't help myself.
I never wanted those stickers in the first place. When I brought the wheels last week I thought I would be getting the 2012 Beyond Black stickers (which was on display) but they sent me the 2013 stickers.


This was what i was expecting. It's grey and black in colour and has 'speed weaponry' under the Zipp writting. The 2013 decals are too bold and glossy IMO and detracts from the dark matte frameset.

I see why you removed the decals. Still looks horn in the matte finish. Stealth FTW :mrgreen:

I liked it better with the stickers. At a distance it helps differentiate them from all those Chinese knock offs.

Ps. Mow you lawn :)

sorry giants are rare for me... Times are the commodores of my club :-) .
Sorry I am being a bit harsh... Just that one in the pic with the white wheels is a bit yucky ;-) ... I am probably just jealous because of all the cast offs we get offered, none of them are XL ! .

Just buy the beyond black decals off eBay. $10 from the UK. They mightn't be from Zipp but buggered if I can tell the difference.

I just did. I'll give them a go when they arrive. If I don't like them or they're crap quality i'll just rip them off and keep them blank.

Actually when I bought my shiny red 595 I needed to get some wheels .... there were some great deals on those American Classics at the time and they reviewed well (particularly in the US!) and i did consider it, but in the end ruled them out because I was concerned about the leery factor. Ended up with some Zipp 404, much more sober graphics :) So it was interesting to say the least to see the AmClass wheel on the new Look, kind of surprising actually since I see the brand as being a little more traditional in its aesthetic (although becoming less so with every new model). I'd love to see how they'd look on the Cofidis 595, if only I had the photoshop skills (hint, anyone?)

Funnily enough, on Thursday I meet with a guy to give him some cash to build up some wheels, we got talking and turns out he is a product tester for Look and Time ( they are both based near home ). I asked how I could get on the gig as I break most things given a chance :lol: ... I think he has many friends in the industry, probably no testing but he did mention Time are looking for a photographer :D .

I've got 3T EgroNova LTD bars and stem Senator.

Pretty happy with them. I got them painted in Matte to suit the frameset.

It has 3T EgroNova LTD bars and stem Senator.

Pretty happy with them. The standard reach and shallow drop suit me. I had the gloss coat taken off and painted them in Matte to suit the frameset.

I'm running the Rotundo's at the moment, don't mind them, but might change to something different in the future. Like the look of your bars.

Hi schroeds, very nice and I like the wheels. Funnily enough, today I was at a friends place and his bike (an Avanti) had these wheels, very nice :-)

I still can't make up my mind...the lary bugger in me says yes, the conservative says no.

Anyway, makes a change from stealth, that's for sure :)

Does that include pedals and bottle cages, or not. I am trying to finish off a build, and I am looking to reduce weight at minimal cost. A logical start is to compare to similar budget bikes that weigh what I would like it to be.
