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!
Sick and tired of dealing with hubs that do not want to stay adjusted or bearings wearing out quickly in less than perfect weather? If you don't mind voiding a warranty this is the most elegant solution to all of your hub troubles, re-lace your rim to a White Industries hub! That way you get the best of both worlds and no compromises, one of the best rims out there laced to one of the smoothest and longest running hubs you can buy!
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
