Bike 49

Met this crew en route to Ballard. They’re riding 49 States and were very happy the sun was shining.

Huh, the interview seems to trail off quickly after asking if it’s like Hed.

Sexy as they might be, I can’t see myself shelling out for these wheels. My road bike doesn’t see enough action, and I find that I can go up walls in 30x23 with my Cross-Check, 29er wheels, and loaded panniers… then down the hill and right back up again.

The audio got overwhelmed by the race announcer, but yes they are like Hed. As I wrote in the post, they share the same toroid shape and wider rim. These rims are for roadies and triathletes for sure. If you’re into that sort of thing, they look great and feel light in the hand.

huh, weird these comments are about the Zipp wheels and not the bike 49ers.
