The Orange Seal option looks good!

Just remember that if you use extenders you want threaded extenders so you can add locknut. Stans sells such extenders; they will just make for an overly long solution when paired with stans valve stems (for these rims).

I went with American Classic valves, mostly for the little curved washer things, and Stans extenders.

Seems to work/look fine to me!

i'm in the same situation and have been doing quite a bit of reading. As of right now, im stuck on far sports CC 50mm U shaped wheel w/ Ud hubs (cermaic) - they'll be around $700 shipped to my door step. I am finding carbon tubulars for about $700-$800, but with quite a bit of use on them. I feel that something new w/ at least 1 yr warranty would put me over the edge rather than taking a gamble w/ someone else's used carbons. my .2 cents

also, it seems that far sports has more options regarding hubs, and they use CX-rays on there builds.

I have not seen many posts about yoeleo. But I have not been following the massive chinese carbon wheel thread on rbr, maybe they are the new hotness there.

Farsports has had a reasonably good reputation here.

The warranty is good but the company is in china. So there'll be some shipping and time involved if you need to make a claim.

They had a v shaped 50mm pair with 1150g weight. With sub 350g rims that's certainly possible.

Hi Guys , Im new to the site.

Basically I am looking some wheels for my giant tcr, I will be using it for racing. I have looked at loads of posts regarding the ebay carbon clinchers , but there's a lot of information to take in .

Can anybody tell me , bottom line , what is the best budget 50mm carbon clincher wheel set out there?

Thanks

and as a beginner...are you looking at 50mm for looks? because you can get some nice wheels for less weight with less profile.

I didn't get the impression from OP's post that he was labeling himself as a beginner rider, rather a beginner to the Chinese carbon clincher wheel game.

I've been doing a bunch of reading on this topic myself, and I've concluded that Farsports' reputation on this forum is tough to beat. Kyle Fu is a member of this board and is completely reachable with any questions/concerns.

Having said that, in the new aero shape market, I don't see a lot of aero shapes coming out of Farsports that would actually compare to a Firecrest or Bontrager D3 shape (or anything wider than 27mm). I could be wrong, but I haven't seen those yet from Farsports.

Lastly, with Farsports you will be able to pick from a variety of hubs and pair them with Sapim spokes. This is huge. Every other Chinese wheel outfit will sell you the CN aero spokes. I'm sure they're decent, but they're not Sapim.

on their site it's u shaped 20.5 but anyway i ended up picking up a new set of vision tc50 50mm from ebay for $899.. I don't like the red and white decals plus 1500g of weight is not very attractive but it I figured $200 more for a good set of wheels is money well spent. Farsports is still not out of my head though, maybe next year I'll pick up a set of 38mm that people are talking about in another thread.

Yeah... They got a new 23mm u shaped tubular at 1230g, the one you were referring to is the old model. They haven't put out many wide tubular models
