I've got to say that the FlyBike/Carbon-Cycle deal is better. The Yishun rims are heavier to boot.
$435 is $20 cheaper than the equivelant wheelset with the Chosen or Powerway hubs. This was asked/discussed on page #63 of this thread.
The wheelset is not currently listed on their eBay page only because the hubs just came back in stock. I estimate that they will be listed soon.
It may also be important to note that this same wheelset built with CN spokes is ~$100 cheaper. A member on page #63 scored a wheelset built as such for $435 including the $80 shipping charge to Salt Lake City, UT.
Raced a crit yesterday. 30 miles of hard racing. Hit a few decent pot holes and cornered hard, lots of attacks and accelerations. Wheels were pretty amazing. Got several comments on them as well. These things do roll when once up to speed, that's for sure. These will now be my primary race wheels.
If they last any amount of time they are certainly hard to beat in the cost/performance category. I have ridden Zipp 404 Firecrests and Enve 6.7s and these are right there in terms of performance...so far.
going with CX-Ray spokes, but undecided on the hubs.
after reading everything, it seems like the Novatec A291SL/F482SL hubs are a little more durable and lighter, whereas the Chosen hubs roll better ?
if someone could clear that up for me and/or make a recommendation for hubs that'd be great.
Looking at a 50 mm from farsports or a 56mm from carbon-cycle.

Which one should I go for, the price difference with the same hubs is about $100 cheaper with the carbon-cycle.
