I've emailed Far Sports but haven't got a reply yet. I want to order the FSC50-CA wheelset in a matte finish, but there is no option to select the finish on Velobuild:

If I ordered from Velobuild would they come with a gloss finish?

I have some 50mm x 25mm wide U shaped clinchers on the way (along with a 90g saddle and some cages). I'll try and get some pics up when they arrive.

My lowly Chinese bike, in a crappy phone picture from my dining room no less. A disgrace to all things WW.

Miracle Trade MC053 w/ well used 6600, these new wheels and a generic Chinese carbon cockpit. Cheap ass tires. Everything Matte 3K. Weighs in at right around 16.5 lbs as shown. Actually, I like this bike a lot.

TheSwan, just now i had a try for the link you gave, on which have matte and glossy option. Yeah you should make it clear that you want.

Has anyone experimented with the Swissstop Black Prince pads yet? I'm in the process of ordering my 24mm U shaped clinchers and I'm curious if I should order a set of these pads.

Anyone from Europe ordered from Far Sports? Wondering if there is any custom duties to import carbon wheels from China? Thank you

I paid 80 euro to customs. My buddy did pay 20 euro's. I know people who haven't paid. So if you're lucky...

Tomaz69, for most of Euro countries, Custom Fee required if the commercial value exceeds 22US$ in total.

Thank you kylefoo for your reply - I was not sure because if I'm not wrong parts from Taiwan are free of custom duties.

Anyone had any experience with these? http://www.wheelsfar.com/20mm-tubular-w ... p-232.html

Crazy light for that price. What is the weight limit for these wheels?

Got my pair of 88mm tubs from far sports yesterday. Ordered through the velobuild group buy w/ non-ceramic edhubs. Weights were 662/791. Delivery took about two weeks.Image

Question for kylefoo: I’m interested in the FarSports 38 clinchers and have noticed you are using CX-Delta spokes now vs. the CX-Rays. Can you tell me what the difference is in spokes?
