I could be mistaken, but that locknut doesn't appear to have any flats for wrenching.
e-mail Zipp ... One of my clients has them as a wheel sponsor, for his race support company ... rave about how nice the people are at Zipp are; just a thought ... Fitting looks similar to my White Ind. hubs and wondered myself if mine were serviceable. Do see how you could disassemble them?
I know squat about hubs. They're great wheels, best I have. Over my Phils, Suntour, DA's, Campys.
I've never seen those before, I have seen these in person and believe they are serviceable. Yours look like an older model obviously.

I did you a favor. I called Zipp, they said they made those a ways back and don't recommend servicing them ... they are cartrige bearings and they probably don't have the parts for them anymore. But, the guy I talked to said that there was another dude there (but he had left for the day) that might be able to suggest a possible solution. ?
Woah, thanks!Originally Posted by rithem
Do you know why other cartrige bearings wouldn't work?
They indeed do not have the parts for these anymore. I called last year looking for an axle because mine is just a tad bit stripped. You could probably find bearings for it at a bearing manufacturer. A similar place as Action Bearings in Boston. I'm sure you have something like that in Chicago.

Not sure, possibly because they may have used non-standardized cartridge bearings; not sure; could be a tollerance issue. Try their 800# from the website during the day tomorrow maybe that other guy will be there.Originally Posted by raygunner
