new wheel set


I apologize if this topic has been answered before....

But i am looking to upgrade the wheels on my bike
my frame is a 2006 specialized s-works with a ultegra groupset.
I was thinking about zipp 404 on the front and 808 on the back but i am keen to hear your thoughts

I generally race olympic and 70.3 distance with a average bike speed of 25-28mph (depending on distance)

But i am also interested in trying shorter time trials

Many thanks

    Also give Planet-X a gander these are amazing wheels at a good price. I've raced these wheels for about 2 years now and they are faultless. Heck I even rode 18km on the rim (of a carbon wheel) after my tyre blew out at Zurich 70.3 and the wheel was absolutely unmarked and as true as the day I bought them.

    They have a deal on for their 82-101 wheelset which, so I've beeen told, is a real life Zipp beater for less than half the price, check 'em out..........

    Hey Conehead,

    Do you happen to know where I can pick up a set of Reynolds wheels in the UK?

    In particular i was interested in the element / SDV66 C wheelset:

    I use fast forward wheels

    Light, stiff and very fast:) They are loads stiffer than Planet X, I had a set of planet X before the fast forward ones and they flexed all over the place.........

    have a look at this site....


    Well priced too:)

    Ideal opportunity to plug one of my sponsors:)hehe
