    High Road Wheels

    What wheels was High Road riding in the TdG? Hed? Zipp? Pro? Didn't look like any decal I have every seen and the profile was more Hed than Pro. I am confused (not that that is hard to do).

    Thanks

    High Road for the most part seems to be on Zipps, Hincapie looking like he brought some kind of personal deal from HED that Stapleton doesn't seem to mind since they don't look to have an official wheel sponsor, probably just all the ex-T-Mobile stuff with new stickers.

    You're joking right? Those are the cheesiest kits in modern history. Like something from a bad 70's hangover. And I know, I actually had a few of those back in the day.

    Their kits kind of remind me of going to the shore and getting t shirts made from the iron-on place. You know, back in the day.

    Thanks all. I knew Hincapie was on Heds at Roubaix but that High Road decal on the Zipps threw me.

    At least George has taste...

    I believe I heard they (or at least Hincappie. I'm not sure if the full team was) were running Hed Stingers at PR. One of the bicycle design blogs had a nice post about the wheels this year. I'll have to pull it up.
