    Zipp specifically advocates radial lacing with these hubs. Spoke holes are coined. Personally, I would have at least as much faith in the build quality of these as Phils. Does anyone know if you can get just a single hub, though, or if you have to buy them as a pair?

    $500 a pair is way too much for a street bike anyhow. Not saying it won't be done, just saying it shouldn't.

    Phil doesn't sweat. He glows.

    Which model is this?



    This set, built on Mavic MA 40, are smoother than my Phils. I wish I can find another set.

    I forget the name but you can call Zipp and they will email you the specs on them. I have a set of those as well and they are so smooth, and thats after a good 3 years doing courier work in Boston all year round. You can not find replacement parts for it though.

    Lots. Mostly steel. Mostly heavy. Mostly geared, and very low, at that.

    They only come in 28 hole, which is probably fine if you pair them with zipp rims and ride them on the track, but personally I wouldn't ever ride carbon rims on the street, and I'm too heavy and hard on stuff to ride 28 hole with anything less stiff than something on that scale.


    That said, they're f#cking amazing. I really wish they made 'em in a 36 hole version, or at very least, a 32. Thing is, they're TRACK equipment. I really wish the Dura-ace track cogs came in larger sizes, but they're racing equipment, they don't need to make stuff for street use.

    Only comes in 28h and costs a zillion dollars, so no. Pretty though.

    I believe that you can get them custom-drilled (or custom-coined to be technical) with however many spoke holes you want.

    Coining is little reliefs pressed into the spoke hole to allow the spoke head to sit flush in the flange. And yes...you can get em in 32.

    the fine print says no labyrinth seals, pretty sure phil bearings have those, which means if you ride them in teh rain they will gunk up like an old ball and cone hub. they seem more geared for track racing than mixed street use.

    Also, a 15mm axle? Does that mean you'll have to file your track ends?

    Check out this post on the subject:
    ZIPP track hub question.

    "coined is when its basically punched out rather than drilled.
    rolled threads are smoother, they can be repeated to much tighter tolerences and reduce the fatigue of the metal of the thread.
    they basically use a die that presses the threads rather than cuts them
    they can also forge it while rolling.
    pretty neat"

    And another thread on the zipp hubs:

    15mm axle thru the bearing, not 15mm thru the dropout/track ends!?

    I know that this thread is super old and maybe this was already
    addressed, but Zipp and Phil Wood are hardly in the same league.
    Phil Wood makes fancy hubs for people with some money who
    want to bling out their bike, while Zipp makes probably the best
    and winningest wheels and wheel components in the world. I
    am sure someone here will correct me, but I've never seen Phil
    Wood hubs in a serious competitive setting, certainly not on the
    track.
