Zipp vs FLO
Quote | Reply
I have been racing on a FLO disc/90 front wheel. I recently bought a pair of 808s for my road bike. I have considered using the front 808 in place on the front 90. Does this seem logical? One downside to this would be switching the brake pads every time I switch. Would it be worth the swapping?

Thanks

I wouldn't sweat it. You could find something even lighter than the 808 as well but can certainly use the 808. Question is then why have the Flo 90 in the first place.

I'm guessing you have the Aluminum/Carbon Flo's, hence the pad change? No I wouldn't sweat it... I've got a carbon Flo Disc/60 combo on my TT bike... great wheels.

Did you get ceramic speed over-sized pulley? It is a must with 808s...they don't work well with anything else, as per nasa nano research.
