YO!!!

 

Need some help with this.....want to look at buying a new stem and crankset. Looked at the Zipp's and they look schweeeeet!!! I know they look awesome but the problem is are they worth it?Confused

 

First the crankset......are they any better than Dura Ace's/FSA crankset?

Then the stem.....besides the best looking stem around same here....is it worth is or any cheaper versions that is just as good?

Pros: good looking, very light, can go for a full zipp look: wheels, stem, bar, crank

 

Cons: very, very, expensive. crank still use ISIS tupe bb, I bet Zipp will soon upgrade the design. A carbon stem is expensive and offers very little performance advantage (but looks bling Thumbs%20Up) No Zipp seatpost to go with the rest.

Personally I think you must look at something else.  There are so many nice Cranks out on the market.  The ISIS type BB is old and not as stiff as the new outside bearing types.

Rather get something else! Like a Powertap and a coach, cheaper and it will actually have some sort of benefit.

Very true....that is why I just wanna know if Zipp is WAAAYYYY overpriced ot is it actually worth it, by the look of things meaning price there is noooo way I am spending that on a crankset.Dead

 

The FSA crankset looks good so I might be looking at that.
