    RIP rim brake Zipp 202 and 303?

    Looking at their website, the only wheels they're showing in rim brake models are the 4x4 and 8x8 series (as well as the 302 if you want to count that). So much for the BS "stop b*tching about disc brakes; you'll always be able to buy rim brake bikes and wheels."

    I count 8 different rim brake wheels in Zipp's race wheel catagory.

    And 4 in the road endurance catagory.

    Apparently you are still able to buy rim brake wheels. So it's not B.S. And of course there are dozens and dozens of other wheel manufacturers building rim brake wheels. No shortage at all.

    Well I guarantee you they weren't there last night (only 302). And still no 202s from what I can see. Could be their webpages are just messed up too since the header in your link says 25 products but I only see 10 (including tubes &tires), Also, I count 2 on the race page and 4 on the endurance page, one of which is the 30 not a 303 vs your 8 and 4.

    So maybe just RIP 202 rim?

    Could it be you're using Edge or Explorer?

    Looks fine in Chrome. Edge and Explorer are messed up.

    Nope. Firefox but looks the same in Chrome, for me anyway.

    Meh, Who cares? Zipp wheels are flexy, crappy wheels anyway (I had 202s, so I can say that). Get a pair of A-Force AL33s built up. Just as “aero” as a 303 and far better braking with caliper brakes.
