I have an opportunity to buy a used 2011 QR CD0.1 with SRAM RED build, that comes with ZIPP 404's for $2000 + shipping. Sounds like a really awesome deal... but I'm concerned that the bike and more importantly the wheels may not be the best bike for someone like me (I weigh between 210-220 depending on the season). I'm particularly concerned about the wheels I guess.

I'm very close to buying a Felt B12, but this deal popped up and it seems like a great one.

Any advice? Thoughts?

I've done 4 Ironman races on my CD0.1 and it's AWESOME! I ride on Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL wheels but as for the frame it's GREAT!!!

I have Bontrager Race Lite wheels. I was looking into renting Zipp 303's or 404's for race day for Ironman Lake Placid. What time will I save?

The wheels are my first area of concern and I have started to shop around. I find it nauseating to think of spending the same amount for wheels as my bike. Any help?

Don't know how to take that rear wheel off of your bike? Is the chain making things difficult? Learn how to remove your rear wheel if you have to change your bike tire or fix a flat.

I’m a C-L-Y-D-E-S-D-A-L-E! Many people in the sport know the division is there, but many of them think that it's a 'fat boys division.' So what constitutes a Clydesdale? Why even have this class?
