I'm not sure why are you being so invested on the FSE wheels and Victor's claim on it not being a filament wound? What's in it for you? And does this have anything to do with you being a huge proponents of Curve? I sense a connection but I may be massively wrong.
have you read my posts.....?
i have stated the FSE rims are not filament wound.. and I've also stated that FSE are not fond of the truth.. but our other friend has taken to hijacking other peoples product reviews to push for commercial gain his own.. and not actually properly ready for market product in a relentless and shameless manner
no curve connection but i am friends with Madcow and if he's thinks the product is good then... there must be something to it hey
I've simply got to the bottom of the only closing of a cycling tips review comment section thats all
I tried to stay out of this thread, but you are making direct allegations about me and my business.
1. I did not hijack anyone's review. You can still see the comments on the CT page here, if you use Chrome this link will open directly: [url=view-source:https://cyclingtips.com/2017/03/fse-evo-35c-carbon-fibre-clincher-wheelset-review/]page source with comments[/url]. Read them yourself and also let me know who told you that I hijacked the comments for commercial gain?
Cyclingtips published the review claiming that FSE rims are filament wound when they did not appear to be so. I asked them and FSE to clarify their claim about wet filament winding because that is the process that we pioneered and the FSE rims did not appear to be using it. Neither provided any evidence and both thought it was OK to leave the review up there unedited with the unsupported key marketing claim of the rims being filament wound. This is our technology and our platform hence my great interest in this claim, especially since FSE rims, based on visual inspection, cannot be made using filament winding. It is impossible to wind a woven fabric.
2. Who told you and why would you say that Venn rims are not "properly ready for market"? Zak, you need to clarify this claim. I made no product performance, or market readiness claims against FSE, or even your company operations or performance. You are making a false statement about our products in public. Why? What is in fact your relationship with this fiasco? How do you even state that FSE is lying about their rims being filament wound? We launched our filament wound rims to market in 2015 and that same year collected a Eurobike award for Venn Rev 35 TCD wheels: http://www.eurobike-show.com/eb-en/eurobike-award/award-gallery-product/2015/1129/
As I said many times, we are focusing on the OEM market, and by my location you can ascertain that I am in Europe.
3. You are stating that I am behaving in a shameless manner. Zak, you are stating that FSE is lying about their core marketing platform, that happens to be the technology that we developed, and yet I am behaving in a shameless manner. How does that work? Lying is fine, but asking for evidence first in private and then in a public forum where both FSE and CT can participate and offer information, and defending our intellectual property dilution is being shameless... got it.
I did say that I only found out about the CT review, and even this thread after I was directly told by others.
If you are going to make negative public statements about me, or my company provide some proof please and ask for the same from your "source". I'd be very interested to see it. Alternatively do not do it, or ask me any questions in private. I can forward you all the emails, and better formatted comments so you can make up your own mind regarding the sequence of events and what actually happened.
