Those are just the 2006 303 tubi's with custom silver/chrome decals to match the scott decals.


I'd like to know more about the decals that you have applied to the Zipp rims.
Who supplied the decals? Cost?
How well did they adhere to the dimpled surface of the Zipp rims? (My concern has always been that any aftermarket decal would not be pliable enough to conform to the dimpled surface.)
For removal of the originals - just a hair dryer and then peel off?

Thanks in advance for the info. Like others I think your CR1 is as nice as any I have seen.

WW member IUbike made the decals actually. I told him I wanted decals to match my scott decals and he whipped em' up for $25

The decals had no problem sticking to the dimpled surface of the rim. The old Zipp decals just peeled off pretty easily.

I would say PM IUbike and he can set you up.

As for the white bar tape choice, I picked white because I have a San Marco Regal Racing Replica that is white on the way. I know it isn't very WW, but it will be a great training saddle.

Yup the decals were designed and printed by Brent (of Rue Sports ) and myself when I was down visisting him over the summer. The have held up after being on a roof rack which works for me. I have had no pealing problems, they mount down into the dimples pretty well. If anyone is interested or has questions simply PM me!

I always would choose the same colour for saddle and bartape think black - black or white - whit would look better on the sl.

Where were you able to find the San Marco Regal Racing Replica in white to buy? Was it just a good ebay find? I've been looking for one for a while. Also, beautiful bike.
