From what I ahve seen these are the top 2 from china. I like to know who is better. I have seen more post for farsports but its mixed reviews. Im looking to buy a wheelset from china but considering a used set of boyd for the similar price. Please advice

Thanks Dingleberry!
After smooth communication with Carolin at LB, I'm getting ready to order a 28h set for tubeless and disc brakes. Since I want to use my own dt swiss front hub and have the build checked by a local builder, they will send me only the rear built, with the front as parts. Nipples, spokes with length of my choosing, very forthcoming. That will have f/r looking in sync ;)

One question I haven't seen answered yet: Are the regular tubeless valves long enough to use without extenders? I only know the superstar long valves being longer than 45mm

The Stans valves won't be long enough. I would probably just cut the valves out of some old 60mm-valve tubes. (I am not familiar with Superstar;I will have a look.). 60mm is definitely long enough on these rims, though. (I wouldn't go much shorter unless you are ok with only using a thread-on pump -- like Lezyne.)

Stans have removable valve cores, you can just add an extender. Also, Orange Seal makes 60mm valves that would work.

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.

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