Review: Zipp's 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels Live Up To Their Compliance Claims
@IamZOSO: I can’t really weigh in on that one, since I’m 160lbs soaking wet. I certainly haven’t felt even a hint of unwanted flexiness though.

Review: Zipp's 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels Live Up To Their Compliance Claims
@Mac1987: no, but I do manage a bike shop and spend a lot of time trying different bicycle products, wheels included. I’ve ridden on at least a dozen models of carbon rim this summer for instance. Even the ones billed as built for compliance, such as the synthesis are just not the same as the Zipps. Hell, just hand flex a bare hoop and you’ll see what I mean.

@jasminov: like I said, I was concerned about that too when building them, but haven’t had any issues so far. The Zipp provided rim strip that goes between the tape and the nips is pretty burly.

I’ve wondered about that too. I built up a set when they launched, and have about 1,000 pretty rough miles on them, and they’ve stayed true and well tension balanced so far, but only time will tell how they hold up long term.

I own a set of these, and the difference between the Zipps and any other carbon rim is pretty unsubtle.

It’s definitely not a function of spoke tension. I custom built up a set to standard spoke tension values and the ride feel is undeniably different. My girlfriend would notice the difference.

@jasminov: I was a bit dubious of that solution as well, but they were super easy to tape up with their provided rim tape, and they haven’t given me any issues in ~1000 miles of use.

As someone who actually has a set of these hoops(laced to Onyx), they’re rad. They’ve got a different ride feel to anything else out there, carbon or otherwise. Especially in chunk, they make the whole bike feel smoother and more composed. Think a nice damp crud ski, but in wheel form. I’m pretty sure they’re going to hold up really well. They’re really thick, and being as flexible as they are, when you hit them hard, they seem to want to deflect out of the way and rebound afterwards. I’ve had a stupid number of rim strikes since I got these and no damage whatsoever, along with zero pinch flats. They ain’t cheap though, that’s for damn sure.

First Look: Maxxis' New Dissector Tire is Made for Dry, Loose Conditions
@JohanG: Yeah the Assguy is perfect on 30mm and terrible on 35mm. It was honestly really surprising to me what a difference those 5mm made.
