Hi All,

Got a real dilemma on which wheels to buy! Should I go for the Shimano 9000 50 or the new Zipp 60? The weight is within a few grams but the hubs on the Zipps are not the same as on the higher end wheels. Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Martin

Shimano, no question. Better hubs and a better all-around wheel, IMO.

been using the WH-9000 C50s for quite a while and would reco them over the Zipps. Make sure you have them trued before installation as mine were a bit out of true out of the box.

To add to what everyone else is saying: Shimano.

Zipp hubs are fairly poor in design when compared to a dura ace hub. And the new shimano rim shape should be a little aero step up from previous generations.
