I heard back from BEV and it was a bit disappointing. First, they were assuming that I was a business looking to resell, which of course, I'm not. Second, there is a minimum purchase order of 50 pieces (not sure if that's complete sets or not). However, just out of curiousity's sake I asked if I met the 50 piece minimum what the cost would be, and on the 80mm tubular, it was $178 USD.

Not bad at all. Now I just wish they had a distributor (which they don't - I asked that too).



group buy?

Take what Real Design mentioned and run with it. For many of these resellers, the MOQ can be overcome by indicating that 'your' company will first need to arrange for the purchase of some sample pieces for testing wheel builds with the hubs you plan to use.

FarSports has some wider "CX" rims. They will sell to individuals.

Does anyone have a direct link to the "cx" rims? Finding a specific rim on that site is very difficult.

Subject: Re: BWR-131 (80mm Tubular)

I'm convinced you do not understand my situation. I am ONLY interested in buying two rims for my personal bicycle. I would NOT be interested in buying 50. 

If there is a way for me to place an order for just 2 BWR-131 at $178 + shipping then please let me know. Otherwise, I would have to look elsewhere. 

For reference, my address is ::

Edited out the home address

Man you were rude in that e-mail thread. It is similar to when travelling abroad seeing loud Americans ask for something in English then get annoyed when they aren't understood. Their usual response is to say the original request louder and slower.

Do farsports have their own CF facilities or are they a trading house again?

I see they have a chinerallo frame listed, but most of the other road frames look more uniquely inspired.

How does 390g for a 50x23 tubular stack up? I'm guessing a little heavier since it is classed as a CX rim. The weight seems good to me, 50mm deep and still lighter than 99% of Al clinchers.

I'll admit that I got rude with her. I have to admit that. Nevertheless, our emails were more like chats in the sense that we were going back and forth within minutes of one another. After the third time she requested my company name, I wanted to leave it at that.

The last thing I need to be labeled is a loud American. Forgive me if I came across that way.

Anybody knows where these guys source their new 2013 "wide" rims ?
Looks a lot like copies of some known brands... :wink:

Boyd switched manufacturers for his new line. Not sure who makes them but I would image he has a good relationship with his manufacturer and might have an "exclusive" deal for now. I haven't seen anything like this from the open mold guys yet. Very nice and quality built wheels.

This side of the pond, UK-based Wheelsmith has 23mm wide tubulars and 24mm clinchers with Gigantex rims. Selling full builds only.

*cough*

Coincidentally, FarSports announced last night their newest line of wheels.
You guessed it: wide, "U shaped profile"

Kinda funny that Boyd comes out with them at the same time.
I'd still rather buy FarSports.
