Anyone running 2016 Zipp 303's?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone running 2016 Zipp 303's?

I just ordered a pair based only on glowing reviews from friends and online publications from the previous version of the 303's. For 2016 they improved the hub and dropped the price by 20%. Couldn't resist.

Nope, but I have the 2014s and if they're better now then that's great. I hated them at first, but now I love them after replacing those crappy hubs, especially the rear. I doubt you'll be disappointed if they really have improved those.

i have 2016 303's. cant tell the difference from boyd 44's. but when i push the front wheel with my fingers against the fork, i feel more resistance with boyd's. these are my first set of zipp. cant compare them to older model.

I bought a set of 303's a few months ago. I assume they were 2015. I know the hubs were improved a year or two ago. Have they been improved again on the 2016's or are they the same "improved" hub design?

I have a couple pairs of Zipp wheels. To do again, I would go through wheelbuilder.com. they will build Zipp up with any hub in their stock.

The 2016 hubs were dramatically improved, according to Competitive Cyclist where I purchased them.
