I hear they just announced an expansion of the original front hub recall that now covers v6, v7 and v8 hubs.

I've been riding the V8 hub since 2012. Not sure I'm willing to go through the hassle of getting the hub, then having to relace the hub to the hoop.

^^^ this.

Basically the recall means Zipp recalls every front hub since Firecrest was introduced until the v9 version.

I also do happen to have a pair of front Zipps from 2011 (one developed a rim crack and was replaced, but hubs haven't had any major issues), not sure what to do with them now.

Light bulb Zipp/SRAM peeps!

Do what Enve and many other companies do and source aftermarket hubs like WI,CK,DT....even so far as a simple rebadging. They will fly off the shelves again. Good rims but no one is going to fully trust any hub they roll out for a long time to come.

The recall seems to be focused on US and Canada. Any idea on how this is handled in Europe? I have one of these hubs on my ´13 404 FC.

I just called my LBS (Hong Kong) and they said they will ship the rims back to Zipp. Seems like I will be out of a wheel for almost a month, what the hell.

I hope the nsw wheels dont come shipped with this bs. What zipps wheels dont have some sort of problems from factory? Apparently, not a lot. Skewers recall, Hub recall... Whats next. I know most Zipps owner dont experience this problem but it'd be nice we dont hear these sort of news repeatedly from the same company.

Which one would you prefer?
1. Company openly admits to its fault, taking full responsibility for its product and making it right, recall, or
2. Company not being able openly take responsibility for the well known problem, always making "running changes", quoting some Shimano's spokeman (as a example).

3. Company which doesn't have constant issues with design and quality of its products, and because of it doesn't have to make recall every year.

There's plenty of wheels manufacturers which haven't ever even fraction of issues designed by Zipp.
Corima, DT, Vision, Xentis, Campagnolo to mention few. It is possible to design and manufacture fault free wheelset, but obviously Zipp didn't found the way how... yet. And nothing says they will in predictible future :mrgreen:
