    Problems with Zipp 404 FC CC?

    I got a brand new set of Zipp 404 FC Carbon Clinchers about a month ago. I like the wheels, but it seems like the rear wheel's hub needs to be tightened every 100 miles or so. For such an expense set of wheels I would not think they would be this much trouble. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Mmmmm....I have a similar situation with my FC CC 303's. The last time I road them, I didn't tighten the rear hub. As I was climbing, I heard the sequential rub sound. The wheel was wobbling enough to rub the NDS chain stay. 1st time that happened. I have had them since early summer 2012, ~1000 miles.
    I do not have this issue with my 101's or non-FC 303's.
    It is not a real big deal, but the "hub tightening step" needs to be done before I ride them.

    My 404 FC clincher rear hub did not have that problem but did crack and was replaced under warranty early this year. No problem since.
