Thanks Kyle and ms6073.

What's the weight of these rims? Is there a cross-section diagram? I'd like to compare these against the older 50mm clinchers that I have.

Has there been any aerodynamic testing or modeling? I'm not really expecting that but it'd be really cool if it happened.

Can I get your opinions guys? I already have 50mm tubs and I am after either the FSC20-T or the FSC24-TM. I weigh 79kgs (175lbs) and I want to use them as my main wheels and the 50s more for racing. Am I mad for thinking of those ( I really like their weight) or I should go for something more robust and heavy like the nemesis?

I have a set of FSC24TMs. I weigh 30 lbs less than you. I expected them to be super flexy but they're decently stiff for what they are. But there's no way I would use them as every day wheels.

I am similar weight to you and use the FSL24-TM rims with tune hubs as my main wheels.

Only 2500 km to date, awaiting a little more distance before giving the thumbs up, but so far so good, including some good descents (30 km, 1300 m) without issues.

Eric, 430g/pc +/-10g, same as previus version. You can ask for section drawing by email.
We do test, vedio can be seen and downloaded on site http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/Ipxc ... r=Ynj_GLDn
if account and pass word needed, let me know. I had a try, it is not neccessary.

Just ordered a set of the 38mm 23mm wide clinchers! Can't wait to get them..I'm also thinking about getting a rear 50mm U-shape. Kyle has been attentive to my emails and is also just a funny guy to chat with. Hope it arrives in awesome shape! I'll post my review then!

So im slightly confused....Looking into buying either the 60mm or 88mm tubulars, but their are two versions of each; TM and TN. Can someone help me understand this? Other than weight I don't see a difference...

TM rims are lighter than the TN rims, but more expensive. I don't think it's the same manufacturer between rims. I think it's like 100g per rim or so. I got the TM 88's built up with non-ceramic edhubs and it came to about 1460g. The 88's pick up crosswinds like crazy, almost unridable in many conditions, so it's pretty much a TT-only wheelset for me. I weigh 57kg, so that's part of the problem.

Being on the Far Sports mailing list, I received some drawings of what are supposed to be the newest versions of the regular (20.5mm) width 38mm and 50mm rims with the following details quoted verbatim. I make no claim to accuracy or reliability, just passing on the info FWIW.

"1 - Braking surface: high-temperature resin and basalt combined
2 - U-shape,more aerodynamics
3 - Special technology in side wall and valve hole
4 - Lightest weight: 390g--38mm clincher, 430g--50mm clincher."

" For valve hole,we use some special technologies to make it stronger. Besides,our design make the outside length of nipples is a little short than the normal one,so it can reduce the demage in riding."

I thought all the new "U" shaped designs came in the 23mm or 25mm width vs the older 20.5mm width. Do other suppliers have U-shaped with a 20.5mm width?

If they don't now, I imagine they will soon...Far Sports is not a manufacturer, and I don't think these are a proprietary design in any respect, so there must be a factory spitting out these rims to whichever resellers want to buy them.
