    SO... trying to distract myself from my recent loss...my 2003 Pista Concept was stolen in NYC 2 weeks ago, and came across a set of used Zipp 440 road wheels.

    I was thinking of getting the front to run on the track and then it came to me that if i bought the rear i could delace it and maybe have it laced to a track hub... is this possible/ a good idea with a used wheelset, provided they are in good and true condition?

    thanks for your advice,

    -johan

    what is the drilling on the rear wheel?

    i use a 24h zipp 440 front on the track that i laced up.

    depending on your weight, having a rear wheel with a low spoke count might not be the best idea on the track.

    yeah, i did mine with an american classic micro 58 24h and radial laced it with dt competition spokes. came out to <700g with an allen skewer.
