Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

if you have to ask, you probably can't afford them.

They look like Zipp 303s to me.

Could be wrong.

If you actually are interested in buying a pair, you could give them a call at: 800-472-3972

I don't see any color option myself.

I agree, but remember performance > looks.

(Although, lookin' good can theoretically help your performance as well )

Well, my suggestion would be to go into your nearest LBS that offers Zipp wheels and ask for the custom wheel program. Be prepared to walk out of there with your wallet handed back to you with a smirk.

It is ridiculously expensive.


IF you have lots of money then you can get Zipp wheels in any color.
