Here they are with the decals on. Loads of bling on this wheelset, I'm used to a little more stealthy look, I think I will build a second set for the CAAD btw.

Well not sure about your bling comment because there is no bling really. Good job on the wheels.

Had them built up for 2 weeks now, still true and Garmin data shows I'm a bit faster (of course it's subjective) Love em, still highly recommend!

Hi just been looking on Far Sports - are those wheels the glossy finish as they look like Matt but their site says the spec comes with glossy.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but are these the same rims being sold on eBay. I suspect not, as those on eBay are around 1520g and most on this thread seem +- 1350g.

I'm urgently shopping for new rims having just destroyed my Reynolds Assaults riding Stage 1 of the ToC course. That 2 mile descent at 18% on Myers Grade delaminated the rear and then the front rim. A long walk home.. To be fair I got around 30k km out of them so no complaints really.

I've laced my Reynolds to a Powertap, so thinking about buying a front wheel and rear rim. Emailed both light-bikes.com and Farsports. Waiting on a reply...

Thanks

Would be nice if people could post links and seller info when listing specs and parts on this thread.

Took them for a spin around the block, brakes work well, free hub is real loud, I think the pawls need to be greased, so far I'm pretty happy I'm gonna take it to my local mechanic to make grease the pawls and adjust the rear Dérailleur
