Zipp 404 Truing In Christchurch?

Postby SheepNZ on Wed 10/Aug/11 10:43pm

Hi everyone,

Can anyone suggest a bike shop in Christchurch that can true a pair of Zipp 404 clincher wheels? They are only slightly out of true by about a mm at the most after an encounter with a sharp bump in the road. Cheers!

I'm not sure of any idiosyncracies or silliness with Zipp but I take my wheels to Dr Bike (peter). no one else.
google for contacts.
