Best thing about your Zelvy wheels:
The best thing about Zelvy Wheels is that iv never had to touch them the whole year that I owned my first pair before upgrading to another pair with different hubs. ABSOLUTELY RELIABLE. In that year i was smashing bike parks such a Whistler for 3 months. They stayed dead straight and never gave me any issues. They are everything i would want in a carbon wheelset. Light, Stiff, Compliable, Reasonably priced and look dope.
