Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-Way Fit Long Term Review

Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-Way Fit rear wheel

Ever since I started road biking again last year, I’ve wanted a pair of Fulcrum Racing 0s. I don’t know what it exactly was. It was probably because I had never seen red Fulcrums before, and in my mind, they would look stunning with a matte black frame. For 2010, the rims changed colors. The initial appeal for these hoops is the look. Hoops that are completely red are rare. This is the start of a long term review on these wheels.

The Pinarello Dogma/Prince Dilemma

2008 Pinarello Prince in Neon

If you are in the market for a frame from Pinarello, and you don’t want to spend too much money, then you should seriously consider buying a ’08 or ’09 Prince carbon frame. The Dogma is the latest and greatest from Pinarello. It just came out last fall and retails for $5,500 in the US. We have it at a better price, but it’s still quite a bit of money to pay for a frameset, which includes frame, fork, headset and MOst seatpost.

There are many different reasons to choose the Prince. It’s a race-proven frame, very stiff and responsive and, unsurprisingly, it’s actually lighter than the Dogma 60.1 frame. Pinarello, like most manufacturers, tends to quote the weight of their frames unpainted, just when they come out of the oven, without derailleur hangers. The Dogma frame has got a lot of layers of heavy paint on it, quite a bit more than the Prince. The geometry is very similar, but the ride of the Prince is more nervous and lively compared to the Dogma. The Dogma is more comfortable. So, if you’re looking for something lively, you should be looking at the Prince. If you’re looking for a stable ride, they look at the Dogma.

Campagnolo Bora Ultra Two On Giant TCR Advanced SL Team Giro ISP

Campagnolo Bora Utlra Two on Giant TCR Advanced SL Team Giro ISP

I took these photos for a client. It’s a combination that you don’t see that often, but I think that it works pretty well. The Bora Ultra Twos are a great set of aero wheels, that look darn sexy on any bike that they are put on. Since this frame has already got some nice-looking decals, I think that the wheels fit very nicely onto it. Continue reading ‘Campagnolo Bora Ultra Two On Giant TCR Advanced SL Team Giro ISP’

Campagnolo Hyperon Ultra Two Clincher

2010 Campagnolo Hyperon Ultra One

The Campagnolo Hyperon Ultra Two wheelset is designed to be the best climbing wheel available. However, it proved quite a challenge for Campagnolo to come up with the clincher version, which incidentally sells for about $1,000 more.
