Does anyone know how the FRM wheelsets compare to Mavic Kyseriums, both from a performance and a weight point of view?
I'm on the verge of completing a 6kg Principia/Poshbikes/Storck based bike but I need to get the right wheelset- any suggestions? :D
Also is there a UK distributer for FRM?

If you wait a few weeks I will be able to givo a review of the following wheelset:
soul kozak hubs
cx-ray spokes
AC 350 rims
28 f & 28 rear.
I've been waiting for 3 weeks for the spokes to arrive, I hope I get them this week....

I expect:
front hub : 50g real
rear hub: 167g real
rims: 700 g
spokes: (28 + 28) x 5g = 280g
Total: 1200 g

It was a shame I couldn't get a 24h front rim, the spanish importer only has 32 & 28 h rims.

The spanish one only sells to shops :( and as I said only 28,32 h.

Spada bike sell them for 55 euro and the shipping about 25 or 30 euro .
