My personal experience with Zipp road wheels was less than stellar. The first set had an uneven brake track that pulsed under braking. Then the spokes on the rear wheel all became loose. No thread lock of any sort. Then the front hub was recalled. I agree with the above sentiment that the drawing of the rim twisting is hyperbole. Also with that much compliance, the spokes will be loaded and unloaded far more than a standard rim. I think that will end up breaking spokes more rapidly. I read that a special spoke washer will be used to allow for some movement at the nipple rim connection.
