where to find deals on HED or ZIPP wheels?Gary
Mar 8, 2001 4:18 PM
I'm interested in buying a pair of one of these wheelsets. And other than the marketplace on here, has anyone found any online sites or whatever that sells new ones at a discount? They aren't that popular, so not many of my standard places I look even carry them. Specifically, I'm interested in the HED3 and the Zipp 404.
Thanks!

The best price for Zipp 404's I have found is at www.nytro.com, it's a triathlon site. The price is $825.00. The next best is www.bullteksports.com for $900.00. Nytro has the HED 3's for $800.00. You might want to check with Dave's Speeddreams, at www.speeddream.com. He puts together a set of wheels using HED's Jet Deep rim for $619.00.
Thanks!Gary

I just found out where I'm getting my new 303's. Nyro's price is untouchable.

Thanks

Gary, I currently have on order a set of Zipp 404 Tubulars from Empire Bicycles. They sold me the wheelset for $791.00 which includes the $16.00 shipping charge. Talk to Charlie, he is very knowledgible and pleasant. He also sells the HED H3 wheelset for $10.00 more than the Zipps. After speaking with him, he suggested for my needs the Zipps. Here is his email address so you can contact him, empirecycle@earthlink.net. Here is his website address, www.empirebicycles.com. Hope this helps. I can't wait for my wheels to arrive!

You can get HED's direct from HED at a pretty good discount. They sell the factory sponsored riders stuff and stuff that was used off of their wheel support cars. It still carries the factory warranty. You can get a set of HED3's for about $700.
