Hello! Now I'm thinking about buying a new wheel, but I'm not sure whether to buy a 303 wheel in 2014 or buy a 202 2016 zipp wheel.
What would you recommend?
What is the difference between the hub zipp 88/188 and 77/177? What do you recommend?

Thanks for responding soon. Hahaha .... I had never been a Zipp user, much less a carbon wheel user, but I decided to update and improve my old aluminum Cannondale frame (Very light). I think I'll go for some wheels 202 with the new hub 177.

Why not take a look at wheelbuilder.com and get either the 202s or 303s with Chris King hubs? I have some 303s and 404s built by them and not only have they been fantastic mile after mile, but their prices were very competitive. FWIW I have no personal ties to them, just great personal experience.

Also, I have found the 303s a GREAT all around set. Light, yet aero and great in cross-winds.
