    I would only use those wheels for racing and I would only buy them if I was a good racer.
    Joe Blow should worry about how much HE weighs and stop spending money on light weight parts that weren't designed for him.

    I race CX on Zipp 404 tubulars. They are not weak wheels.
    I wouldn't use them everyday of course. What with the expense of tires, doesn't make sense.

    Zipp303's are great, great wheels. I don't know anything about the others except the Hyperions are AWESOME. Gawd, those are some wicked wheels.
