Thought I would provide some initial feedback after purchasing Farsports 24mm FSL24-TM carbon rims. In short the experience has been a good to date.
- Communication from Kyle was good.
- Payment process was smooth.
- Delivery was fast and smooth.
- The rims arrived well packed and looked good upon inspection, claimed 260g +-10g per rim, actual for both was < 250g.
Front: Farsports FSL24-TM rim, Tune Mig70, 20 spokes, Sapim CX-Ray radial, alloy nips
Rear: Farsports FSL24-TM rim, Tune Mag170, 24 spokes, DS: Sapim Race x2, NDS: Sapim CX-Ray x2, alloy nips
Weight came in at f410g + r554g = 964g
Building went smoothly. On the wheel truing stand, they rolled true, spokes tensioned normally, no issues noticed.
Currently 1000 km on them including approx 20,000 m vertical using Veloflex Extreme on front and Carbon on rear, all seems good. No brake rub when climbing, braking with Reynolds Blue pads is good, no squealing, no pulsing.
While the experience to date has been positive
, it's the experience on the bike that really counts, I'll know this when I get past 5000 km ... that's a few months away
