On Danish:

Nej, det gør jeg ikke på tros af jeg kører med samme opsætning som dig.
Men det kan være at det bliver anderledes når dine bremse klodser på forbremsen bliver slidt til, så den er i samme vinkel som forhjulet.

Mit forhjul er fra februar 2005, måske har Zipp ændret på bremsebelægningen på fælgen.

Sorry, don't no have to read It on english... :oops:

Kuada_Dan; I understand the reason for your post in Danish, but please post in English as others may also be interested in the question/answer and with the exception of some selected members I suspect most of WWs speak better English than Danish 8)

i simply asked him if he had experienced problems with braking with his Zipp 808 front wheel, Record Skeleton brakes and Zipp brake pads (as this is what we both use)
when ever i brake the wheel is not 100% identic all way round and that makes the braking VERY bad, and uncormfortable.

he answered that he hadn't experienced any of theese problems..
so i was going to ask in a new topic, but now that i'm told to hijack Mortens topic i will do that :twisted:

anyone had this also?
otherwise i will contact Zipp.

the only thing with my zipp wheel and the brakes is that the zipp rim is not vertical and parallel where the brake pads touch the rim, but lenticular as part of the aerpdynamic design. when i had brakes last year without the possibility of adjusting the brake pads in every direction(like record, dura ace 7800 etc.), i had special brakepads that i put in when i used the zipp rim, they were filed down in the angle of the rim.
right now the skeleton brake pad holders are settled parallel to the brake surface, but when i use the training wheel with a normal rim, it's just braking on 1 mm of the pad. since changing brakepads is a hell of a job with campa, i'll probably buy a set of koolite pad holders and use it with shimano pads and make a new set of "zipp specific brake pads"...
but with the braking itself i never had problems,my rim has a very nice finish and good quality

anyway, really looking forward to the roll out of my new time trial bike in about 2,5 hours 8)

It's OK if the bottle is mounted as on my picture. But don't mounted on the 'seat-poste' becourse you then don't have a very good grip on the bottle the you take it out.
