Is anyone having brake pulse problems from any recent 27mm (FlyBike) rims?

I was reading one other forum and the complaints seem to be pretty common.

Hi Thue,

Thanks for your reminding.
Your rims will be ready in the next week.
When it is shipped, you will be informed.

Have a good day.
Yours faithfully,
Jason

I requested (non-catalogue) pictures of the WU6T from YishunBike, and these were sent over this morning. I think the finish is great ::

Got to admit I'm a bit swamped by the info in this thread. If I had a specification such as: carbon clincher, 23mm width, 60mm depth or close, U shape, tubeless ready, could anyone point me at a supplier?

You might check with light-bicycle if they have their deeper u-shaped rims available. I think they have 50mm versions. I have the U45 and they are nice -- especially without brake track / for disc-brake wheels, since I see reports of issues with their brake tracks (I assume disc is what you were looking for). 24.5mm outside, 17.1mm inside , so reasonably wide. These are tubeless ready and while I have not tried tubeless on these, they do seem to have very smooth beads -- and generally seem to be constructed with tight tolerances. I think that was the main issue with making the Farsports tubeless (near impossible to seat): bead was fairly uneven/not-smooth on the inside, took lots of soapy water and then latex along the outside.

I ride the U45 as my every day road-bike wheels. They have gotten a fair bit of abuse including some gravel. So the 3k surface has a few scratches now, but they have held up perfectly for the past ~1200 miles.

Thanks for the pointers. I was thinking more of a lightweight pair of wheels for my TT bike but as I do have a disc bike, it's a permanent temptation to think of carbon wheels for it...

Does anyone have any experience with the Farsports 24 carbon clincher. The weight seems great at 360 grams per rim and wheelset at 1199 grams. The one I was looking at is laced up with the ED hubs. I do live in a hilly region and do quite a bit of climbing. I have had 2 sets of the 38's without any issues, but remember someone saying that the smaller rims do not get rid of heat build up as fast. Any help is appreciated. This is the model I was looking to purchase.

Ah, gotcha. I am sure others can give some pointers on tubeless-ready deeper rims. I was happy with the experience from Farsports and the product (though build was under-tensioned), but that 24x50 model was definitely not tubeless ready.

Yeah...Swisstop yellows are crap. Switch to something like the Zipp Platinum Pros, which are grey, and work excellent, made by Swisstop. No more yellow and better braking IMO.

I am also interested in the 24mm. My 38's have been great!

I'm shopping for rims for a friend, should buy a pair today or tomorrow depending on availability, finish and prices..

I'd like to know if members here are happy customers and have bought more than one product from either companies.

Also, wich manufacturer would you choose from ?
HongFu or Farsports ?
I bought a cyclocross fork from HongFu and was pleased by the product.

Thanks for the heads up :beerchug:

Louis :)
