Hi guys, want your opinion on one thing.

In my last tri somebody smashes their bike onto my Zipp 900 Powertap disc. It now has a crack (a small indent hole the size of a screwdrivers head) that needs repairing. Zipp says that it should be repairable and want to help me out.

I bought the disc for 2000$. I am just wondering what the drop in resale value is for a repaired disc would be.

There's a definite loss in resale value for anything repaired… A used PowerTap Zipp 900 seems to go for somewhere between $1200-1400, I would guess you could get about $800 for a repaired disc, even if Zipp did the job.

BTW, that really sucks… hope the person owned up to the damage.

For eight months now I have had progressively worse snapping in my legs and ankles. Whenever I walk, my knees crack on the outside and they sometimes hurt when this happens.

Losing fat is not difficult. So why does this continue to be an elusive goal for so many people, who “struggle” just to lose a few inches?

I challenge all BT readers who want to shed the pounds to stay committed to their training during the colder months. Share this commitment with others.
