Kurt's Zipp Carbon Rebuild

Carbon Easton Racing Sapim TT and Triathlon Wheel Builds Wheel Repairs Zipp

Zipp rear Carbon wheel and hub repair by XLR8 Performance Bicycle Wheels

Kurt found us via our website, as we carry lots of spares for Easton and Zipp wheels . He was keen to replace some bent spokes and broken nipples in his rear Zipp wheel, as a result of an accident.

A local bike shop had attempted a repair, but had not had the appropriate parts on hand. As a result, the wheel was temporarily fixed with silver nipples and the affected spokes reused.

We disassembled the wheel, and reassembled with Sapim Polyax brass nipples, in black of course. This wheel should be good to go for another few years (until the hub flange cracks, of course!).
