Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-Way Fit Wheels

Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-Way Fit rear wheel

One of the main reasons for Campagnolo to release the Fulcrum wheels was to tap the market of bike enthusiasts using SRAM and Shimano components, who weren’t keen on buying Campagnolo brand wheels.

That being said, the Fulcrum wheels are equivalent to some Campagnolo wheels, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t excellent. This year, the Fulcrum Racing Zeros come in a 2-Way fit version, meaning that they can accept tubeless and clincher tires. An easy way to differentiate the 2010 model from the 2009 model is the fact that this year’s model’s rims aren’t red, they are black.

Giant TCR Adv SL 1, Fulcrum Racing 0, & Mavic Carbone SL

TD's fully mounted Mavic Carbone SL wheels

Tuesday was a bit hectic. We had just received another TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP that will be sent off to France tomorrow. I came by on Wednesday night to take some photos of the build. The Giant bikes come pre-assembled, so basically if you’re a bit handy, you’ll be able to mount it by yourself. All of the cabling and wrenching has already been done.

Day Off

S-Sun 7000 Candlepower LED light
S-Sun 7000 Candlepower LED light

Well, my day off didn’t really turn out the way I would have liked. I started out too late and didn’t manage to get a bike ride in. There was a bit of rain, but it was just that I started going about my business too late. At least I got some sleep.

I went to the bike shop today to pick up another LED light. I had a smaller model, so I picked up the S-Sun 7000 candlepower light. The smaller light is very bright, so I expected the bigger one to be even better. It was a bit expensive, but better safe than sorry, and I had too many close calls during my night rides to not get an extra light.
