Reynolds Cryo Blue installed and run in for 200km more....Braking power has massively improved.
If you had been using cork type pads (or cork synthetics....i.e. the brown generic ones)....ditch them! The Reynolds are on a completely different level on these rims.
Kyle, can you get back to us about the pad/rim run-in time. Is that pad line-up related, or heat treating the rim related?
Thanks.

Geoff, the versions marked on our instruction sheet are all proved/tested by us, and run good effects. In addition, This is for avoiding
some guys using wrong brake pads. Because we got feedbacks that they got problems for the track due to using brake pads(which cannot be matched for carbon wheels).

That is not what I'm asking, Kyle. I absolutely agree that you should run the manufacturers recommended pads. I'm happy with the Reynolds CryoBlue performance. They are good (they have started squeeking a bit but the braking performance is good for a carbon rim).
What I am asking about is the 200km "break-in period" (see your companies instructions re setting the brakes up)
Is this 200km period to flatten the pads to the rim completely?
OR
Is the 200km period to "heat treat" the rim?

BTW I have now done about 500km on your company's rim (50mm clincher) and have now used it on "the tricky descent" round here. It has coped well and this is a very very good thing :) I am impressed so far.

Geoff, usually for new rims and pads, existing a run-in-period, in the early days, heat generated easier when braking and squeak much,
after 200KM-400KM riding, will feel better. to some extent, flatten pads to cooperate rims well.

Regarding rims, hahaaa, although i am confident in our rims and your proficient skills, everyone should take care the long term descend, especially for the tricky conditions.

Pcrispey, i wonder who you contacted with? What you ordered if is our normal version, usually
5-7days needed i think. It depends on what rims finish and holes you choose?

Kylefoo, any estimated availability date for a 38mm tubular in the new profile or a 50mm tubular? Of course, what I'd really like is something in the 42-45mm depth range.... like the new Boyd 44 http://www.boydcycling.com/2013-product-revamp/ :)

Kylefoo. Any idea when a wide (u shaped) 38mm clincher might be available. I thought I heard a rumour they are available from farsports, but can't seem to see them on your website. Thanks!

I am thinking about ordering the FSC50-CJ from Far Sports.

This is the new U-shaped 50mm tall and 24mm wide aero carbon rim that was introduced this year.

My proposed build for the rest of the components is below with my questions.

1) Rim: I have a posted a diagram that Mr. Hu of Farsports sent me - no questions there apart from weight.
2) Spoke holes: 20/24H Internal - I am assuming this means that there will be no spokes drilled through the clincher rim and thus allowing for tubless tires.
3) Hub: ED ceramic hub - does anyone have experiences with this hub or the Yuhub hub for straight pull spokes?
4) Spoke: Sapim CX-ray, black - if ED hub, I think they thread all of the spoke heads head in or head out but not alternating, correct?
5) Nipple: Sapim (SILS), black - no issue
6) Mounting Front wheel: 20 spokes radial - no issue
7) Mounting Rear wheel: 16 spokes drive side - 2X, 8 spokes non-drive side - radial - is the strongest spoke configuration? Can I assume that will be almost as strong as a 32 spoke rear wheel with 1:1 lacing since there will also be 16 spokes on the drive side?
8) The weight for this build is 1470g as opposed to 1330g for the 50mmx23mm V-shaped rim Cyclocross wheelset.

So, once again, if you all would be so kind, what do you think about the following questions:

1) Does anyone have experiences with the Yuhub hub for straight pull spokes? Would you recommend this hub over the ED hub for J-bend spokes?

2) For wheels built with the ED hub or equivalent with J-bend spokes, the spoke heads are all threaded head in or head out, correct? Has this been a problem?

3) Is the 2:1 16 spokes laced 2x on the drive side and 8 spokes laced radially recommended for an 8,9,10-speed Shimano/Sram wheelset?

Thanks for you help.

Mark

Teleguy, so far we have 50mm tubular 24mm width, "U" shape, Will send you section drawing by email. 38mm tubular may be will in our business line in the future.

Trillo, so far our 38mm clincher*23mm width is not U shape, but we have 50mm*24mm width and 50mm*25mm width,
As plan goes, we will launch 38mm*20.5mm width U shape after March if thing goes smoothly.
