So I saw my first Zipp FC equipped bike today. Talked with the owner after our club ridge. I was surprised that the 404 Firecrest was not a chubby as I thought they would be. I was worried about the psychological aspect of lugging around big wheels, especially after going from my svelte MV32 Reynolds tubulars (21F/23R).

He went on to say that if he was able to do it again he would go with the 303's instead, as wind gusts have freaked him out on more than one occasion.
