Well, I just bought a new pair of these F2R with 240's hubs
I was looking to F4R because it just looks better, but rationaly due to the windy conditions of where I live and the fact that my short rides (due to lack of time availability) have to include a lot of climbing I decided to go for the F2R.
I am not a pro, I dont race, and I am 77kg.

I hope I made the right choice.

Must say that the F6R tubulars turned out to be the bee's knees. Good in cross winds. Predictable wet braking with the Swissstop yellow pads. And Veloflex Extreme/Carbon front/rear was a good choice too. Souplesse and speed.

Well regarding the production site of the rims, a guy on a Belgian board contacted xpa-cycling.com to ask about their rims and got the following reply (http://www.wielertoerist.be/jorisnrt/verhalen/carbon+wielen/?did=13295&modus=view):

Hi,

You can contact "FFWD" to purchase their model F5R rim directly.

The company name is "Fast Forward Wheels B.V" in Holand.

Best Regards,
Emma


When you go to the XPA website and click on "who we are", you'll see some asian woman. When you click "where we are" you'll see a black page, whenever you click on that black page you'll get some error message with some asian characters that I don't understand (using Chrome). Obviously I can't tell for certain, but my guess is that it's some chinese rim.

That the rims are made in Taiwan or China should not come as a surprise to anyone.
The discontinued F5R tubular rim looks very much like the old "standard" Gigantex 50 mm rim.
As for the Current F6R rims I think I've seen the clincher version branded as 4ZA (Ridley), but the tubular version, and the F9R I've only seen under the FFWD brand.
