And you all thought I 'begged' or 'stole'. Silly you.
It turns out my Zipp wheel ride is not to be. The spokes for the rear tire are misaligned by quite a bit and since my seat tube doesn't have much wiggle room it will not fit. So, I sadly bid adieu to the race wheels. Which I have to say I'm pretty comfortable with despite the lack of aero dynamic benefits. I know my wheels. They've been with me through this entire journey. More importantly I know how to fix a flat with those wheels. So, thank you to Marc for being generous enough to lend them to me but it looks like you can have them back. And to the beautiful race wheels here is a short tribute.
