    Madone with ZIPP

    Can anyone please post pictures of Madone 5.2 white with ZIPP 404 wheels?

    I am thinking about to get set of used ones and wonder how they look like together. Also, correct me if I am wrong ZIPP 404 is good for a regular everyday usage since it's got aluminum rim for breaking?


    TIA

    I'm not sure why you would use $2k+MSRP wheelset for 'everyday riding'. Used or not.

    holy **** dude, If I had that bike I would NOT curb it, even for a quick picture. One stray gust of wind and I'm a'cryin on the ground.




    Unless, of course, it had a kickstand.

    Wow tollhouse, is that your bike? I didn't think the ridiculous ZIPP decals could look good with anything, until now. Hot.

    I would recommend not breaking them, regardless of the type of braking surface.

    Because they are lighter and I can go faster on them?

    My bike is 3k + and I ride it every day.

    Am I missing something? (except some $$$ in my wallet )

    They're 808s, but this one is just too perfect not to post.

    1000 USD for set of slightly used 2008 404's... Good deal?

    Why not? Get your money's worth out of them? They're tough and they'll hold up. Ride the hell out of them.

    Is there a big difference in between 2008 and 2009 model?
