The link you posted was the old ones, which are the ones I'd use.

Has anyone used these yet on their FarSports?

http://www.williamscycling.com/2013-Wil ... p_125.html

Id be interested to know if these are similar or the same as the Blue FarSports.

I'd be interested to know as well.. $15 is much better than $30 for the Reynolds.

Noob question here sorry but I'm buying some farsports 50mm second hand - the width at the rim looks less then 20mm !

1. What model could they be (FSC50-CM-something ) ?? I think they are a year old or something ...
2. Could I fit 25 tires to them or does that negate aero benefits ?
Cheers

With edhubs these are probably the v shaped FSC-50-CM rims with the basalt braking surface. I have a set. The rims are very light.
If by some chance they don't have the basalt braking surface it's better to skip them.

With 25mm tires I would go with 23mm or even 25mm rims.
The aerodynamic benefit, stiffnes and handling advantage is worth the money.

Here is a picture with a 25mm rim and 23mm + 25mm tire.

Lolek, those are sweet looking rims. That is the 3K Matt finish, correct?

Yes, 3K matt.

3K glossy and UD matt are nice too but I prefere 3K matt except the sattle ...

Lolek - are they the carbon alloy clinchers? Trying to get some feedback on them before I order.

I ride them since 6.000km. My wife and children ride the 38mm and 50mm alloy clincher.
All of the are awesome.

My recommendation is 50x23mm front and 60x23mm rear with EDhub in 2:1 spoke pattern (16 ds / 8 nds).
They have the most stiffnes I ever had.
