From what I hear locally (at some of their biggest dealers) they are vaporware right now.

oooh, so it might not even be produced, or maybe at a later date?

Zipp seem to be good at doing this, it's no where close to being the first time they announce something and then take ages to release it.

Personally I wouldn't buy a set for at least a year or so after they come out. Look how many incarnations all their stuff goes through, something pretty much every year changes.

their catalog is out- I saw it at my local bike shop. They are woefully dreadful at updating their website and product line. And the fact that the cycling industry as a whole has adopted an attitude of yearly product changes (usually just for the sake of change and to give the cycling buying public something to get excited about) R&D is left up to the consumer, regardless of how many miles the say their stuff is tested by pro riders. The way they crank new items out there is insufficient time to test these products, leaving it up to the consumer to see what works when they finally are sold to the public.

those rims are real. i have witnessed them first hand, both at interbike, and with various folks who are testing for zipp. as for their release date, that is a matter best discussed with zipp.

vaporware... lol, your buddies at spada seem to be good at that, old bald man

I called them that because that's what my LBS called them, who do discuss things with Zipp.

There is no need to attack me, or the company Spada.

attack? i don't see any personal attack targeted at you personally in that post. spada, yes, my comment was negative towards them, but not you. perhaps you are offended at my mispelling of your name... ye olde bald one... my error there...

Man! Eveeryone thinks there being attacked lately! Me twice in the last week, now Jim, when there was no attacking! Just oppinions and jokes! Everyone just chill. Every friggin day some punk is complaining because they take text out of context. Not to mention the use of emotions so you know its a joke, or your serious, or whatever the mood that is intended to get across, and yet you still ignore them.

This isn't pointed at anyone, but I've had 2 people in the last week say I was " ATTACKING THEM" when in fact I wasn't, just putting some humor into it. STOP TAKING ALL OF THIS CRAP SO SERIOUSLY!

Everyone on here is whining, "Oh, your attacking me!, Someone do something!" Bunch of cry babies and tattle tales. :roll:

Don't flame and attack just to do it. Read it first, read it again if you need to, and think about what is written.

We need emoticons for "flame" and "chill".

We need an emoticon for "more talk/less emotion".

We need an emoticon for "less talk/more emotion".

We need an emoticon for bad taste paraphrase: "can't we all just f@*^#@n' get along?"

We need an emoticon for "emoticon party hapnin' sat nite!!!"

We need an emoticon for "nuke the emoticons".....

I'd go with the reynold cirro UL KOMs.. rim weight is awesome.. I know that the wheels could be lighter at the hubs but inertia of these wheels must be one of the lowest around. $1800 a pair I think. didn't someone mention that Reynolds may build with other hubs on request?? surely then it would be possible to get a sub 1kilo wheelset. if not get the wheels and rebuild with new hubs.. not cheap but if someone is absolutely minted then they could have a very light set of wheels indeed!!!

i contacted reynolds, and they said that they do not recommend the cirro ul kom's for riders heavier than 175lbs - they will not do custom drillings or other hubs, and they do not plan to sell the rims alone. Best bet is to get the cirro, not the cirro kom ul (280g). stratus ul are 285g i would def look into those. but lets see what the zipp 202 are like.


stratus are $1799, i bet i can get the 202's for under 1100 bucks, and i just want the rims, so i can build them up with the hubs i want, i might get them cheaper.
