Hey guys, Sorry for posting so much, I'm just shopping for a pair of wheels and there are so many options. I found a deal online here in China where a pair of Zipp 404s and a pair of Corima Aero+ are sold. Both are second handed and tubulars. The 404s have around 1000km on them while the Corimas have less than 100km on them. The 404s are selling for around 1170usd (currency exchange), while the Corimas are selling for around 1270usd. The 404s will include QR while the Corimas will include a pair of brand new Conti Gatorskins. This would mean that I would need to get tubulars and brakepads for the Zipps and QR and brakepads for the Corimas. The 404s are 2013 10speed freehub ones that was modified to accommodate 11speed. 11speed fits on it and works flawlessly. The Corimas are 2014 ones that are close to brand new, it doesn't even have teeth marks on the freehub. So what should I do? Buy either one of these or get a pair of brand new 2015 reynolds assault tubulars for around 950usd (I know a guy) or some other options?





P.S. Sorry for the long article

I used to ride on Corima aero+ for a couple of years. I have nothing but positive things to say.
Top carbon rims, very strong (with foam core), very good carbon hubs, sapim spokes. Bombproof and easy to repair.

Never owned Zipp but currently have Corima. My favorite wheels - Light, stiff and comfortable.

I'm on Corima's third season now and they are bombproof and trouble free wheels with great hubs.
