Zipp Wheels

Noticed a few cats rollin' on them. They look nicely made but wonder are they stiff?? I dont have alot of experience with any Zipp product. I currently run CXp33's on formula hubs, 3 crossed, tied and soldered. They are stiff, but I grow learly about inflating my vittoria's up to 160lbs. The thing im sorta questionable about is that the 404 has radial spokes on the front. I weigh 180lbs, my local track is steep.

Any feed back on Zipp 404s would be great.

They are quite stiff. I'm 195 and the track here (Blaine) is 43. No problems at all.

You might find my opinion biased though, as I have a pair of these for sale:

PM if you want more details.
