Don't see why not. The rims are narrow but they're not that narrow.

Thanks Eric. I wonder how 'aero' these '20.5' 50mm clinchers are but for USD $367 posted - I'm not complaining !

I find them slightly but noticeably faster than aluminium rims on fast descents. About the same as my 2009 Reynolds 45mm deep rims.
I use 23mm tires.

So what was the general consensus on brake pads for farsport rims?

I didn´t get brake pads with my set of rims. And their website only shows yellow brake pads, which from what I can read a couple of pages back in this thread, wheren´t doing well.

Are the Reynolds Blue still the best choice?

I've had good luck with the farsports blue (before they had the black). No problems with many thousands of miles and mountain descents.
The pads have plenty of life, and the rims look good too.

Where do you buy them?

Their website only shows the yellow ones.

In other words I just want to buy some good brake pads for the rims, and I don't care where I have to buy them and what color they are.

Aside from braking power, are blue pads also "cooler" than standard (Ashima) cork pads?

It will be quicker to get a set of Reynolds blue pads. Keep asking FarSports until they have some and then order a number of them so you will be set for pads for a while.

You can also try the FarSport black pads. They make for firmer brake feel but they require more hand pressure to stop, especially the last 15mph to zero. I didn't like them as much as the blue pads but I prefer strong brakes. Someone with stronger hands would find my preferred brakes to be grabby.

I have never tried any cork pads... I wouldn't unless that's what's recommended by the manufacturer for the rims.

Are Reynolds blue as good for far sport rims as their own blue ones?

They perform the same for me, and look the same too. I'm talking about the 2013 and older ones which can be found for about $30 on line not the fatter 2014 pads that are more expensive.
