    zipp and hed rims

    I need to buy a hed jet deep or a zip 808 rim. Does anybody know how to go about this. I can only find complete wheels.

    please...if you are seriously going to ride it for racing on the track, then go to the track forums and ask there since they actually used that kind of rim for its intended purpose. If you really want the rims, I suggest don't waste your $ just to look cool.

    Def not for cool points. I'm 30 so no tight pants and hipster hats for me. When I get out of school I'm going to start going up to pa to learn how to be a legit track racer. Rules and technique. I really enjoyed reading about track racing and watching it when I was a kid. I'm bulding up a pista concept with all campy record minus the wheels. I've got a set to ride for work and am trying to get a set to race on.

    Haha.

    Zipp 808. For street riding = hilarious. I'm not sure what you're trying to do buying just the rims but I can guarantee you that it'll cost more than if you bought the wheelset complete.

    Those wheels in that pic came with the Concept, he only had them on for a very very short time (maybe only for those pictures). He sold them for boku duckets shortly thereafter.

    Seriously though, someone had the idea of going to the velo (or road race for that matter) and taking pictures of the really fast dudes on regular, non-pro equipment. "These guys are faster than you and spent much, much less money". I'd say Zipps or HEDs or anything like that is total overkill for someone who is just starting to race on the track. As for where you can get the rims...?

    Going by what I hear from the roadies, Zipps have a reputation for **** durability and you probably would never want to ride them on the street, although old ones like Zipp 440's from the 90's can be had for pretty cheap prices if you look the right places (less than arrospokz omg!).

    But yeah, brand new 808's for a track beginner... overkill. Get aluminum tubulars.

    I don't know, I think the demand for 440s is pretty high. I sold my old road 440s on eBay for ~$500 last season. Not super expensive, but not that cheap for carbon wheels.

    Or contact Ron Ruff in New Mexico. He is a wheel builder on the forums. (rruff.)

    That guy put zipps stickers on the flashpoints. weaksauce. (it's made by zipp, but that's like badging a toyota as a lexus.)

    Yes, putting the Zipp stickers on them was lame, but other than that who cares? No, they're not top of the line stuff, but Toyotas don't suck either.

    Toyotas don't suck is like the biggest oxymoron on the face of the universe.

    There is no "other than that." That's was my only point.
