Anyone riding a custom z3 with 303 Firecrest clinchers?
Do they have adequate clearance?
I want a Z3 but I don't want to get it if wheel/tire clearance is and issue.
Even "tight" is a deal breaker for me.
Let me know.

Top of my head I can't remember. Need to check, but I think it is one from Ritchey. I want to swap it for a tune one, but have not been able to source on in black or dark red yet!

Unfortunately, Tune stopped making the "Cappy" a few years back, and they are unobtainium. That, and they snap (see my thread).

I'm using a Woodman now, but it's heavy. There aren't a lot of great options, so was curious what you were doing.

This looks like a Woodman to me. I don't think it's a Ritchey.

The Tune Cappy was ok in my experience, but the yokes that hold the saddle rails were sharp so I wrecked a load of bibs when I ran it.

If you can find a Ritchey Superlogic carbon one (and the 'ears' to run the carbon saddle rails), that was the best solution I found. The KCNC toppers are also pretty good, but slightly less elegant. Mcfk used to do a nice one, as did PMP, but I'm not sure if either are still available.
