Looks like a Zipp 808 Track using a Zipp track hub.

hah! race what you got. i've been spanked by riders riding taiwanese steel frames. it's the rider not the bike

i just want to look good after being lapped 10x in a points race

the front is a track 808. i just slapped some matte black zipp stickers on them.

maybe i'll take photos after i glue on the new tires.
