Hi,
The white wheels are FFWD low pro carbon rims laced to DT240 hubs. On our park scales they come in at 1040 grams, so not too bad. Owner has not had them out yet but should be a great climbing bike. Interesting point of this BB30 frame was how light it is compaired only 940 grams true weight. Thats 70 grams lighter than a 2011 Cervelo R3 we have in the shop in the same size. It must be said that the finish of frame is awesome compaired to some other makes we see.

And what are the 50mm deep rims? Chinese or stripped FFWD rims?

This is a custom non standard colour. Yes the rims are Gigantex that I got from wheelsmith guy - not really in the same league as FFWD's or Zipps but fine for every day wheels although I would question the value :| . The FFWD's are awesome wheels for climbing and change the feeling of the bike :D . Built as a solid no non sense ride. :thumbup:
