ZIPP 3001 or 2001 frameset wanted
Hi there,
Would you have a Zipp 3001 or 2001 Frameset to offer that would suit me (I am 183cm ( +/-6') tall) ? Please contact me on zarautz70@caramail.com. Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for your tip.
      Do you think the 3001 is worth that price (2500) or should I go for a cheaper 2001 ?
      Are the Zipp bikes as good as some say ?
      Any thoughts about it ?

        3001 frame is ultra rare because only a certain number were produced ~100, I believe. I don't if the frame is worth $2500, however, reviewers on the web have rated it superior to Softride, Kestrel and the Zipp 2001 frame. People who already had the 2001 bought the 3001 and claimed it was much stiffer and lighter than the 2001. Of all the reviews I read, it seemed that the 3001 was more suited to taller riders than the 2001. I do know that the Zipp frames are more durable than the Softride, but expense keeps me from obtaining one at this point. I guess the question is how bad do you want/need one and is it in your price range? I think that this bike is probably worth it due to the fact that it is ultra rare and ultra hot looking. The purchase price on this 9 year old bike was ~ $3500. Let's see, a Zipp 3001 with Campy Chorus, HED-3 CF wheels, mmmmm. Good Luck!

        Here is where I found a couple of reviews of people who actually owned the bike

          Well, rare is beautiful, right ?
          To be honest I feel its a lot of money, so I might go for a cheaper 2001. Wait and see.
          Thanks for your help !

                Hi Barry,
                I bought this new frame one month ago and just finished the set up (cabling and so on).
                I have not used it yet because I am waiting for brake pads adapted to the Corima carbon wheels I will use on this frame.
                At this stage I do not think I will sell it unless you are willing to pay a good amount of money.
                Do not hesitate to contact me on my email (Zarautz70@caramail.com) should this be the case.
                Regards,
                Todor

                  Ebay has a hidden listing for a ZIPP Large bike. Auction ID#120048491461. Just found it 11/8/06 and only 3 hours left. Looks good, but for very tall person. Good luck. I just got my Zipp 2001 small frame/small beam and I am in the process of putting it together as well.
