I finally pulled the trigger on an FMB tubular to see for myself how they are.

I ordered the new Competiton CX Carbon (all black :twisted: ) in 25 mm from World Class Cycles.
I received an email saying they're on back order.....:(

On the Fran├žois Marie Boyaux website they're only offered as 22.5 mm and they specicfy they'll produce only 300 pieces.... :?:

Anybody bought the FMB Carbons and actually received their tubs ?

Louis :)

My friend ordered 3 pairs of 22mm and 3 tires in 25mm, the 25mm came with a flatspot on them, so we returned those (world class cycles). they are all comps silk. they roll nice, but he only has 50 miles in one ride with them, i will see if get him to post. some idiot at a local bike shop was lazy and used tape on a set of fernwegs, i glued the other set to his gipfelsturm.

OK. I exchanged emails with Fran├žois Marie.
They're holding production at FMB because they're not satisfied with the black "cloth" they ordered from their manufacturer. He says hopefully the next batch will be up to their standards and production should start around september...hopefully :) .

Never mind I didn't realize the carbon is a new black version. I have the older white ones. Great tires!
