Did Zipp Zedtech wheels (now discontinued) all have ceramic bearings?
Here in Australia, Giants TCR Advances SL 0s were sold with Zipp Zedtechs, and i just assumed these had ceramic bearings, especially given the price premium! Seems they only had steel bearings. I am quite surprised. Did anyone else assume Zedtech meant ceramic bearings or was i the only nieve one?

My understanding was that zedtech meant you got a dimpled hub, hand-selected rims (for aesthetic reasons), and could specify certain colors of anodised parts and stickers, and choose ceramic bearings if desired. They were a lot extra.
