Has anyone tried a low-spoke build of any of these rims? I have a 16h powertap hub I would like to build into a race rim and I'm considering the FSC50-CM-25 rim for the job. Would it hold up my 170 lbs or would I have to worry about rim cracks or broken spokes?

For reference, the powertab hub is currently built to a Bontrager RXL rim with fairly hefty bladed spokes (paired drilling). I've been racing on it for a couple months without incident.

+1 on the blue pads. Even when it squeals it still stops on the dime.

very happy with my farsports set: after 500 k hills cobblestones etc
no wet conditions yet . but for those conditions i would probably use alu clinchers.
specs:
38 mm aero
high temp brake surface
ud matte
ed hub( with a little extra special shimano grease on the bearings)
blue brake pads conti gp4000s.

only issue was mounting the new tires with bare hands( don't like to use levers)

acceleration and aero aspects are superior to my other set
and no noticeable Difference with heavy cross winds whatsoever .
(other wheel set is a shimano Dura ace WH-7850-C24-CL carbon /alu clincher)

The new surface is supposedly rated to withstand 220 degrees C while the bassalt was only rated to 180C.

I've had no experiences with squeaking with the new surface and included blue pads. I also don't toe in my pads.

Anyone got a set of the light as 20mm tubulars yet? Either as the built up wheels or just the rims?

@Nismo4x4: According to Kyle the brake surface on the new FSC38-CM is basalt + 220 degree brake resin combined.
I get a little brake squeal at the slow end of a grab the brakes really, really hard stop, but I haven't tried sanding the pads since they were new yet either.
I'm also wondering if they have a little initial resin build up that can be sanded off, or will eventually wear off.
(It really doesn't bother me enough that I've even looked at the pads yet).
