On the above Pic. It appears that Zipp are now using DT hubs. Are these new Light versions of their old hubs, are has Zipp just insreased the weight of their wheels by using heavier (although arguably better) hubs?

As to who ultimately manufacturers them, I am not sure but the new Zipp 202's use a new hub which in many recent phone calls to Zipp, appears to be a product which Zipp designed to be used with the more classical look of the new low profile rim- the advantages of this hub include the use of conventional shaped spokes.......

Phonak just uses 240s hubs, not the new Zipps. There's a big difference between them, you can clairly recognize both

Was looking at BMC for a longer time, I like their frames (not the team colours) a lot but finally decided for my Scott CR1

think this bike from Toul Gallerie is really looking good.

Looks like they're 04' dura ace cranks, but different chainrings.

Here is another shot clearly showing that Mayo is using 9sp rings or something new Shimano has developed. What do ya think?

Looks loike a 47t big ring. Dura-Ace 7800 don't come in this size, so it'll something else.
Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down

I don't think that these are 9sp rings, just lighter rings than the DA 10
