Upgraded to zipp 303 tubular from mavic r sys sl, really nice wheels.
The mavic was nice but these are so much better imo.

  • Looks fantastic. I am interested in your comment about them being better than the R-Sys though. Do you mean looks wise or performance? I currently have a set of R-Sys and have been considering some Zipps :D

    I like the look of the r sys and the zipp,but imo i think the zipp just have the edge.
    Maybe its because i am running tubs and they seem to run better.

    FAKE CHINARELLO! Joking - just come off the other recent thread where debate is raging on the - for want of a better word - acceptability of labeling up a Chinese frame as a Dogma. This fine example of the genuine article certainly looks the business. I'd also be interested to know if you have any timed runs that show one wheelset is faster.

    Can't believe you didn't align the tyre logos with the zipp logo.. :shock:

    Looks nice though!

    haha you don't! i have the same wheel tire combo and especially with zipps, that won't work. you can try getting new stickers to stick them lined up and even then its not right as the carbon on the zipps have a bent rectangular pattern the stickers fit in. either keep as is or remove the stickers. on my dogma i removed it but yours id keep it. love it!
