Any Zipp 2001 or 3001 bike owners here?

I'm looking into getting one of these unique bikes or framesets! If you have one, post your pics and let me know how you like it!

Blue --
I've been riding a Zipp 2001 since 1997 -- including 4 IM races -- with very little trouble from the bike. The most common criticism is that Zipps lack lateral stiffness, but they are more comfortable for longer races than an aluminum or similar frame. Good luck with your build. Be careful/patient threading cables inside the frame. Also see if Zipp will sell you new elastomers (fresh elastomers really improve the ride). Zipps always look unique in the transition area. Enjoy.

Thanks. I actually had one back in the day, 650c wheels, but had to give it up. My new one has a carbon fiber finish and 700c wheels. I will post some pics up in a bit .

Just got a real nice 2001 on Ebay I am thrilled with it. It came with all kinds of high end items I didn't even know what they were untill after I got the bike. I had a softride and this bike makes me about 3.5 miles per hour faster but also an easier ride. It's hard to explain but It seems like I go faster and work less. I just love it. I would really like to know how this bike being older compares to newer frames. I talked to the guy who bought the remaining inventory of frames from Zipp he said the 3001 has some strip of material in the 3001 that may make it a little stiffer but the frame is practically identical, not really worth the extra cost. Here is a pic hope others post and former owners post with newer bike comparisons. I figure since zipp makes the best wheels this would still be a great bike to have. This bike came for a Time Trial guy that raced in the Veleodome and it is sprint ready which is what I do. I had no idea the hed bars were so expensive or the seat was also nice. Every component, easton forks, is like really high end I guess. To be honest I wanted this bike because it is without a F'ing doubt the best looking bike ever made. I thought It would make me want to ride more and train harder and I was right. It is a great motivator. Sometimes I just go in my workout room and stare at it. look forward to other zipp enthusiasts. - Steve

WOW, i had never seen one of these before just now! They are GORGEOUS! One question....maybe a stupid one....how come these bikes don't have Zipp wheels on them to match...it would seem obvious to me.

bah, what do i know, i'll probably never do a tri in my life...i just wanted to see the sweet rides you guys have

I got my ZIPP2001 back in 1993. I've loved it ever since. I'm sure that I'm not that fast but it feels fast and is quick to respond. On long rides it's very comfortable but firm enough to not lose too much power. It does seem like the bottom bracket moves a little under hard sprinting, but the seat will also bounce a little and even sway from side to side. As a kid I had a pretty bad knee injury and becuase of the flexibility of the beam it doesn't put too much stress on it.

Now... since I've had the frame for such a long time, I can't remember some of the original specs on it. Specifically, does anyone know what the head tube diameter is? I don't want to have to take it apart if I don't have to. I'm assuming that it's a 1" tube. I can only hope that it's a 1-1/8". I'm thinking of changing out the fork with a carbon aero fork and the stem. Anyone have an idea?

Thanks for your time...

Bernie

Oh yeah... here's a pic of the bike

Hi there,
I have finally changed the upper headset cup today on my Zipp 2001 because I could not adjust properly the new aero fork (wich is 1" by the way).
I was actually easier than expected.
As stated on Zipp instructions, I heated up the cup to soften the epoxy (using a simple lighter) and took the upper headset cup off (hitting with a hammer). Then I have slipped a new 1" stronglight headset cup and glued it with epoxy.
Seems good to me.
Regards,
Todor

These bikes are so awesome, it begs the question of why they stopped making them. IS there any source for these still other than ebay? Is there any other bikes out that look similar or are jut as cool other than the currently produced BP stealth?

I presently own 2 Zipp2001's. My other Zipp has been in storage since 94, and I just took it out to build it up. I love the bikes and have worked my flamed Zipp for over 40,000 miles. Great bikes.

I own a 2001 large frame small beam. I also own a 3001 large frame large beam. Both are awesome bikes. I just became a member today. I will try to post a photo of each bike later this week. I purchased both of them on Ebay. Out of the 8 triathalon bikes I own these are my favorite. Softride is second only to Zipp. Everywhere I go people are always amazed on how unique the bike looks and when I zoom past them as if they are standing still they are left in shock. If you have a bad back this is the bike for you. My 2001 Zipp is black with blue decals. It has 650cc Zipp wheels. MY 3001 Zipp is red and black and has 700cc Spinergy wheels on it.

A friend has a 3001 - got it for £350 from a guy who didn't know what he had. Specialized trispokes, titanium campy record - quite the ride. But it is too big for him so he's selling it off.

He stole that bike for 350 pounds. It is easily worth about 1500 pounds maybe more depending on what is on it.

It's probably worth £3000 to the right buyer. But he's keeping some parts and selling the rest - I had to implore him not to take the special brakes off it.

He bought it from a village bike shop who was trying to sell it on Ebay with only a mobile phone camera picture and no description. Another friend bought a 2001 from the same shop at the same time.
