BOULDER, CO (CN) – Local Cyclist is a fierce competitor. Whether he is sprinting against children at a charity bike ride, trying to break away at the Wednesday Night Worlds or “owning fools” on the bike path, Local Cyclist has a very good eye and jumps on any opportunity when it comes to the newest in cycling technology. Local Cyclist doesn’t think twice about spending $300 on a titanium chain that will wear out after 500 miles if it will save a few grams.
This is why Chamois News wasn’t surprised to hear Local Cyclist say he is not going to purchase a new pair of the Zipp 404′s this year but instead wait for the upcoming Zipp 405′s scheduled for release sometime soon in the next 30 years.
Our early spy photos and other leaked information hint to us that the new Zipp 405′s will be truly revolutionary – Continuing to push the “speed” envelope. Zipp is continuing with their very successful speed dimples and have now, after years of perfecting the technology, have added speed freckles. We are not sure what the freckles do but we are sure they will make you faster. Zipp has also forgone the conventional tire, now incorporating a carbon fiber tire directly within the carbon rim. It’s a one piece system! The Zipp 405′s are expected to retail for around $50,000 Monopoly dollars and Local Cyclist has already put himself on the waiting list at his local bike shop even though they have no idea what the hell he is talking about.
