First Outing for Custom Wheel Zipp 303 with White Industries T11 Hub - Bt18 Genting Perez

Sunday 26 Feb 2017 was the first outing for the Custom Wheel Zipp 303 with White Industries T11 Hub. Combination of the Custom Zipp 303 Wheel with White Industries T11 Hub performed amicably for the hilly 79.5km BT.18 Genting Perez route. Absorbing most of the jarring bumps along the winding road, at the same time maintaining a very rigid and responsive feel on the climbs. The Ultegra Di2 was not tuned well after the wheel swap from the Venn wheelset I was testing a week ago but was easily configured on the fly using the adjustment mode on the Di2 on the Junction Box A mounted below the handle stem. Few clicks on the rear shifter and the clicking sound emitting from the RD was soon a thing of the past. Weather was perfect with the mist just hanging post the early morning shower and was clearly visible when we reached the summit of Genting Perez.
