I've got a set of Mavic GEL 330 rims/32 hole on chorus hubs. My question is this: I've seen some wheels that have a white plastic cover/film that only partially covers the spokes - maybe a bit deeper than a Zipp 404. Anyway, this seems to be a "do it yourself aero wheel." Anyone familiar with this process and pros and cons? One pro is obviously cost. One con is that it would seem that the nipples get covered so truing the wheel is more difficult? Anyone know who does this kind of work - I've been contemplating doing it to these wheels? Thanks.
