Hi,

Just thought I would post up my latest product, following on from my Garmin Mounts I plan to launch a range of disc wheel valve covers. The first ones are designed to fit a Zipp 900 and come with or without a built in wheel magnet that works with rear mounted computer sensors. I plan to have them up on the website later this month but would welcome any comments on the first off design.

Martyn

I read somewhere that Zipp discs were faster without a valve cover

I am not sure but will be able to confirm later this year as I will be doing some wind tunnel testing so will test with and without the covers in place. Although i would suggest it will make little or no difference.

I hear the UCI are getting snotty about 'non-OEM' valve covers - ie you need a mavic sticker on a mavic disc and a zipp on a zipp. However, that is a small part of the market - plenty of triathletes out there and plenty of TTs where the UCI rules are ignored or relaxed.
