Crashed Zipp 60

IMGP1376

What an unfortunate day, literally flew for few seconds because of a savage and irresponsible person.

Brake lever bend towards center.

IMGP1367

Scratched crank.

IMGP1366

No more shiny Ultegra wording.

IMGP1373

Scratched saddle.

IMGP1368

The most serious, rear wheelset, Zipp 60 that got its reputation with bomb proof durability.

IMGP1369

Distorted when the car bang into rear tyre.

IMGP1370

One of the two cracked points, more than half of spokes are broken.

IMGP1372

Obviously the impact was strong as the driver driving fast.

IMGP1374

Even the aluminium brake plate bend. Good bye to trusted Zipp 60 that accompanied me to many places, events, races and saved my life before retirement.

The brake caliper is no longer working. Luckily, the Titanium frame is strong and keep in perfect shape, but unfortunately, the Titanium absorb the impact and release on me through saddle, therefore, experienced free flight for few seconds.
