Strength:

Superior Aerodynamic design.

Weakness:

Stock rear brake works poorly and pads need to be sanded down with a belt sander to clear the underside of the chainstay. Inability to use any other rear brake, other than old, expensive and hard to find Campagnolo Delta Calipers, but man was it worth while, beautiful brakes. Headset needs to be bonded on. Seat bolts thread on backwards ad the bolts are of soft alloy and strip easily, also a $20 replacement set. I have done so 3 times, once a year, due to sdjusting the saddle from sliding back and creaking. These small problems are meaningless as all bikes have tweaks that need to be assesed before the perfect ride can be just that.

The 3001 will be a classic bike that is untouchable by any other company, ever. Suprisingly stiff. So fast, I mean fast. The perfect bike for the midcoast. The only bike I like almost as much is the Kestrel 500 SCi due to its same feel on the road. Except they only make it in the 650c model. Mines a 700c and is much better for my 6ft 4in body. I had the 2001 but replaced it with the 3001 for greater stiffness and reduction in frame weight. I can find no flaw to the design of ZIPP Composites. If you can find one, buy it at all costs.

Strength:

Super aero!! Great ride for bad backs. Stiff, yet soft enough for those 100-milers!

Weakness:

Not so hot on the hills.

This is quite possibly the best tri bike ever made! Too bad Zipp stopped making them, but I got #29 of 100!!!!
