Hi all, been reading through the wheel threads and have settled on the farsports 50mm carbon clinchers.
Just looked on their website and they have these laced to 20/24 dt Swiss 350 hubs...I can't find any info on this spoke hole count on the 350s anywhere, has anybody ordered these wheels?

I thought that the 350s came in 24/28 in straight pull and 28/28 in standard flange.....I didn't think they have a 20 hole front or a 24 hole rear.

EDIT: https://fairwheelbikes.com/dt-swiss-350 ... -5477.html

They say in the description 20/24 straight, doesn't make any sense as I have just checked the dt Swiss website and they don't list this spoke count

I've bought 4 sets of wheels from Farsports now - can't fault the wheels or the customer service. Speak to Kyle who should be able to answer your questions.

Didn't mean to cast a negative shadow on the company. Didn't know DT will do quantity runs like that.

They don't. 350 SP comes ONLY as 24F & 28R.

BUT : it's possible that FS has some "oem" hubs ( dt hubs for (&) cheaper wheels are made in Taiwan ) in "350 class" not being really 350 .

What a surprise ! :shock:

FS is big enough to order from DT… ( I know min order, the number is not "low"…. )

2nd thought : 900€ in EU ( with delivery ) - so why not "real" brand… ? With some discounts that's price of DT Swiss or Vision - just first from the row.

350 hubset is 200€, spokes 90-100€, together 300€ so FS rims alone 500€, delivery 100€ ( all prices with customs& taxes and EU stores ) .

"cheap Chinese" has no sense now :mrgreen: / in meaning /

Ok, ordered from farsports 4 days ago 50 x 25 tubeless clincher wheelset, Sapim cx Ray spokes with Dt Swiss 350 hubs & swisstop brake pads. When I receive & have ridden I will post my opinion of them (will compare them to the Shimano 9000 C50 I had)

The SwissStop yellow pads are bad- they don't stop well and they put a lot of heat into the rim. I do not understand why FarSports sells them. You would do better with Reynolds blue pads, the FarSports "ceramic" pads, or Bontrager cork pads.
