    Does anybody have an opinion on the Zipp 303s. I have a chance to pick up a pair of 2002s for about 500.00. They have only been ridden for one TT, and never crashed or pot holed

    Since you will be buying these used which means no warrenty......DONT BUY THEM AT ANY PRICE....I have had a set for about a year and have had to send them in for repair 3 different times. Im not fast, or strong and I dont hit potholes they just arent dependable. Light and give a good ride just not a good choice.

    :) Zipp wheels are stupid light and F.A.S.T fast! That said they are a little on the fragile side of things and definitenly not to be used on an everyday basis. I have had mine for 6 months with the usual dramas associated with lightweight wheels. They need to be trued correctly and fairly often, they do flex a little under load but when you blow the doors off the bunch up a hill or out of a sprint ALL IS FORGIVEN! My question would be why is someone selling em? are they faulty?
