So I've always poo-poo'ed zipps and other high end wheels. I figured,
how could they honestly give you 2000 dollars worth of speed? I mean
that's a lot of money for a just little extra rim and such.
Our sponsor, race day wheels, gave us 5 pairs of Zipp 404s for the
race, and today we took them out for a test spin.
I knew something was different when on a light sprint Patrick turned
to me and said "we're going 32 mph."
Um, whoa nelly. I guess Zipps *are* worth it. I'm now a true believer.
And I'm scheming how I can get a set of my own. There is a casino just
down the road...
