    Zipps vs Cane Creek Volos, kinda

    So I have a set of Zipp hubs lying around that are great, and I was thinking about wheel builds. The only things I know are that its gonna be tubular and I'm probably gonna go for the Sapim CX spokes. The problem is there are some really good deals on cane creek volos for just over $300. While I think that the Zipps will be a great build, I'm not gonna have the money to build them up proper for a while, and if I sold the Zipps (I know I probably shouldn't ...) I could buy the Volos for practically how much the hubs are.

    Has anyone ridden a set of the Volos and a set of Zipps laced up to bladed spokes and could give some advice on whether it would be foolish to buy the Volos instead of building up the Zipps. The volos also use CX bladed spokes and come with semi-aero tubular rims.
    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    If the wheels are for serious track racing, then I would lace the hubs to a set of NOS tubulars and save my pennies for a set of 360 or 420 rims, which i think are about $900 a pair. For mixed street/track, I'd sell the hubs and get a set of volos, but again, that's just me. The Zipps are more than burly enough for the street, but maybe too nice.
