    Zipp FC 303 hub problems

    I've had Zipp FC 303 clinchers for a year now, and "dialing in" the hubs is a constant annoyance. I have even thought about swapping the hubs out for something else... When the rear hub is loose enough so that the cassette wont spin when coasting, the wheel has what feels like too much play. Tighten it up and the the cassette jerks around when coasting and you get chain slap. I have had three different mechanics look at it and even take it apart and clean/re-grease the pawls to no avail. I'm just thinking that it's the way they are. Does anyone else have issues with the pre-load and getting chain slap on the Zipp hubs?Zipp FC 303 hub problems-imag0014-mod-small.jpg
