Record vs. Zipp vs. AC hubs(2 posts)

Record vs. Zipp vs. AC hubstemplecat
Nov 9, 2001 1:05 PM
Building up some wheels, wondering about the relative durablity of Campy Record, Zipp & American Classic hubs.
The Zipp & AC weigh in about 140g lighter than the Record (F&R). The Campy looks pretty sweet, but the lure of lighter componentry draws me to the others....

Read some complaints about Zipp hubs in the Reviews section (in the wheelset section), but now they manufacture themselves... Any probs in maintenece (I've grown fond of repacking my bearings, sealed bearings seem like cheating) or with radial lacing of these hubs??

thanks

2001 ZIPP's are EDCO hubsJS

same as spinergy wheels(except REV X) not sure about 2002 ZIPP's though. The EDCO hubs were designed to be laced radial front, radial non-drive 2-cross drive rear, in fact that's the only way they can be laced.
