I still get excited with each set of these I build. I get a lot of customers who come to me complaining of Zipp hub problems such as short bearing life and needing constant adjustment. This is not terribly surprising as Zipp really builds race wheels more than anything but many many people use them to handle the bulk of their training too. While I think Zipp makes some amazing rims that can handle training volume their hubs leave something to be desired, especially if you spend much time in the rain. To get my customers the best of both worlds I really like how building a Zipp to a White Industries T11 works out, not only are the hubs incredibly durable but they roll really really well so you end up with wheels that are fast enough to win any of the worlds biggest races but durable enough to train on day in and day out!
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
