bahatiracingWondering if this is a knock off zipp wheel??? @zippwheels can you tell by this pic because I've never seen a bike or wheel look like this after a slide out crash.

- snoddy_by_natureGeez. Must have been hauling. Pretty much shattered.
- bahatiracingSome people are getting a little sensitive with the brand loyalty. Just asking your opinion if it was a fake wheel or not because there are a lot of fake stuff out there that looks real. I'm guessing the wheel broke before he even crashed. If you watch the video, he made the turn and was clear but all of a sudden he went down. I'm calling equipment error and not pilot error.
- marcosbullockLooks like it has the dimpled rims, bladed spokes, and Zipp 88 hubs. I doubt it's a fake. Wheels break. Even $3000 ones.
- tuanmynsrIt was probably destroyed when he lost control in the turn and the front wheel hit the curb. Wheel lot legit to me.
- wisco83Don't talk about ZIPP!
- thenewtaylor@dillonjfowler cab was on a hed at the time. No dimples.
- ejkhabibiWell problem 1 is that it's a clincher
- mrnickjonesHis front tire blew going into the last turn and he crashed into the center divide and took the sign out as well. The bike took all the damage. Eric walked away with minor scrapes and cuts. No they are not fake zipps. These are store bought.
- shark_on_the_back_straightNo matter what that looks like it may have hurt just a little bit.
- muchmitchiesJust saw the video of this crash. Looked like he went into an 6 inch tall island Carlsbad Grand Prix 3 Crash: http://youtu.be/5PkfcZl7jJk
