In need of another wheel "FIX"..!

Just back from 95 days in sunny Sri Lanka with lots of riding in the mega hot sun was accomplished so in return, since I have not bought anything bike related yet in 2017, I just ordered me a set of ZIPP 454 NSW Wheelset to add to my fleet of wheels I already do not use..HAH..! I see these just came out and look just lovely..Should have them by friday along with another Trek Emonda SLR8 to slap them on..


Anyone else here yet own or tried out these new ZIPP Wheels..?

Congrats on both the trip and the new wheels.

A riding buddy recently bought them, and while they look "different", couldn't really tell the difference in ride with his old 404's. Maybe a placebo effect that makes him enjoy his bike more?

As for too many wheelsets, my wife would say, "Yes, you can have too many."

I have a lot of bikes and so I have a lot of wheelsets, for my various road bikes, my mt. bike and my fixie, and my awesome mt. bike tandem.

I don't own any aero wheels, since my main interest is challenging myself on hills (lots of nearby 15-20% grades near my home in Los Angeles). I'm sure aero wheels would make a dynamite combination with my Émonda, though, on the flats. But most aero wheels are too heavy (relatively speaking) to interest me. They look great and sound great, though.

I just got back from NYC where I rented, as usual, a Canyon with aero wheels. It was was fun to turn those wheels loose on the West End bike path, on stretches of Route 9 (west of the Hudson River) and in Central Park. The hills, though, what there are of them, are tame. I imagine it's the same in Ohio, where you are, as I've been back to parts of the state to visit relatives.

Here's how not to have too many wheelsets: A pickup truck plowed into me a couple of months ago as I was riding on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (an awesome location for cycling in the Los Angels area). The crash ruined the front wheel of a super lightweight set of wheels I'd purchased for my own Émonda. Luckily for me, no broken bones. The Émonda didn't fare so well.

My replacement Émonda sports a new super-light front wheel. So now I have two sets of new, lightweight Bontrager hoops that came with the two Émondas. (And I have plenty of spare, usable, albeit scratched components from my wrecked bike).

So, yes, mpath, I suppose it is possible to have too many wheelsets. ;-)

Wow, $4k for a set of wheels? I never had a set, so I ordered the Roubaix Pro, which does come with a set (albeit much cheaper, I'm sure). At least for $6,500 I get a bike along with the wheels.

I see you're a Trek fanatic. I'm keeping my Domane 6.2 (fantastic bike!) and was going to order the new SLR, but the Spec came with the cf wheels. I don't think I could go wrong either way, but I have to wait until late August for the 2018 Pro.

Do NOT provide me with your address 😀. That bike looks EXACTLY my size. And I would absolutely guarantee I'd ride it like I stole it!

If you're gonna have fast bikes, you gotta flip that stem and at least look fast.

Gotta love Sram's packaging. Just as excessive as the eTap boxes.

Not so much the big spender nowadays, but I lost THREE rear wheels in about 3 weeks ... all different failures:

Easton 90 SLX: hub failure ... the pawls stripped right through the hub)
Mavic Ksyrium Elite SL: need a new urethane washer and insert ... haven't fixed that one yet
Forte Titan (the cheap commuting wheels): Broken spoke. I suppose I could replace it, but the other spokes are probably on the way out too

I bought another Titan to replace the one on the commuting bike, and these (Reynolds Solitude) to replace the Easton's. I'll probably try to fix the Ksyriums.

1560 grams and about $240 a pair.

If I'm ever fit enough that new carbon wheels and a new carbon bike would be the best thing I could change to go faster, I'll be a happy guy. Right now it is to change how fat I am :-)
