Sorry for the double post but I keep missing this sub forum and wouldn't you know it ... better place for a wheel question :)

Anyone seen these from asia out of curiosity? I think they come out of the Pacific Rim factory that Reynolds has in Taiwan.

Curious if anyone has seen their new stuff or knows of the quality.

They do a 35 and 50 in carbon clincher and tubular.

A link or a picture of the said wheels would be a good way to get some interest in the thread..

Good point! And I happen to have one of said photos I found.

Hubs and weights look nice - but curious about width and if they are as nice as they seem.

Ok, now a price list :) ...

The "cheap" 35mm T version sounds promising at 1277g, with a DT340 SP. The shape looks "trendy" ;) . Depending on price...

Louis :)

Unfortunately no information from me - I got the info from a friend of a friend as I'm headed to asia in two weeks. You can see them on some asian websites but it's flakey on information.

But it says Pacific Rim so I can only assume they are decent coming from Reynolds. The hubs and spokes are hie enough.

Yes, those are Pacific rims. I've built lots of them; they're really a massive cut above anything else coming out of asia these days in terms of quality; Light-Bicycle et al. As far as the shape goes, they are basically a U-shape.
