I have pair of Zipp 404 tubulars from 2011. Considering rebuilding w a powertap g3 hub. It is a 20 spoke rear wheel. Will it be a good build? Dt comp and brass nipples would be fine. I am 63 kg.

I've done a few of them. If they are Firecrest there are washers in the rims you have to deal with. Other than that it's pretty standard stuff.

I just rebuilt my Zipp 404 FC clincher to a Powertap G3 hub. I went with DT Aero Comp spokes to help boost the stiffness over the stock CX-Ray spokes. 2x/2x.

They built easily. Mine did have the oval washers. It was a minor challenge getting the old washers out cleanly but I found that a stack of neodymium magnets made it an easy task.
