The Perfect Carbon Aero Wheel

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hi
Have ZIPP sorted out their hubs. I had heard that they had issues hence why I was going for Tune Hubs.

I would say so. There were some fairly extensive (though not all immediately obvious changes) to the hubs for 2006. Slight alloy changes, several additional iterations performed using FEA, new pawl spring, and new recommended lube for the pawls. The CSC boys have been on these for about 2 years and warranty returns on hubs are now well below 1%.

Also, to the post above abotu Zipp hubs... the 2006 ones are great. I've ran mine in all sorts of conditions and no problems what so ever.

Hi
Just to let you know.
Front: I went for 404 rim with Tune Skyline hub and c-xray spokes - 505 grams (16 spoke)
Rear: 808 rim with Tune Mag 160 hub and c-xray spokes - 770 grams (24 spokes)

I will do some tests against the kysiriums when the weather gets better and let you know if there is a difference.

Thanks for the advice

Dave

9000ft climbing over 112 miles? That's a mountain stage in a grand tour.

And I know people that do close to that every weekend. Now, they take something like 8-10 hours to do it, while the pro riders take a little less time.
