Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Well my carbon clinchers have finally seen better days and it's time to replace them after all I got them of flea bay 3 years ago for £120 so they have done me proud . I am thinking of getting some fulcrum alloy clinchers either racing 3 or zeros . My question is this how much better is the zero and is it worth the price over a 3 and what problems are there with any of the 2 . Cheers guys

If you want to run 25mm+ tyres, also consider the Racing 5 LG.
I wish Fulcrun would do a LG version of the 3 and zero

I'd highly recommend the Dura Ace WH-9000 C24 CLs instead. I had a pair of Fulcrum 3s and they were light (for the money), but harsh. Nothing special really. You can also read this comprehensive test featuring the fulcrum zeros and dura ace wheelsets: https://intheknowcycling.com/2014/09/02 ... escending/

Please note that later this year (early next year) Shimano will update its wheels with new hubs and probably slightly wider rims. But with the current UK pricing the WH-9000 C24 has amazing value!

Campagnolo is coming out with wide alloy rims this year, maybe that will trickle down to Fulcrum as well, wide rims make a huge difference so maybe the wait is worth it

Check the Fulcrum Racing Quattros with wider (24+ mm outside), U-shaped rims. Awesome wheels at their pricepoint.

Forums are written full with that discussion, Not hard to find I think. :wink:

Fullcrum 3/Campagnolo Zonda are the best value for the money overall wheels.

While you dont say where you want to use them for exactly, and things like your weight, recommendations can't be given.

Ok my weight is 82kg and they will be used primarily for club runs but may be used at other times . Although I am not brilliant at ascending I am pretty good at descending so will need to be strong. Thanks guys for replying .

I beg to differ. My "narrow" dura ace wheels are just as (if not more) comfortable as my wide h+son archetype wheels with white industries T11 hubs. BUT I use both pairs with 23s.

I do agree that Fulcrum 3s have an outstanding value.
