    pulsating braking, Zipp 808 tubular

    Hey all,

    My Zipp 808s appear to be rolling true, but when I apply brakes, there is a pulsating that results in poor stopping at best, locking up at worse. Anyone else have this problem or know what may be causing it? no obvious difference in braking surface...thanks!

    Have you recently glued on tires? Is it possible that there is a thin glob of glue on the braking surface? I have had that happen before where the glue was almost invisible and I missed it in the clean up.

    If it's the front, flip the wheel around and see if it still does it. If you've got the tool, check to see that the wheel is properly dished.
