hahahaha. You should send this to Schmolke.
$500/rim for the 30mm (288g) Carbon Tubular is a very good price point!
That's very, very light. Price isn't that bad actually.
@madcow, whenever you post a link, on a mobile device you just end up at the fairwheel homepage which sucks on apps like instagram etc

What I find most appealing about these is that they bring a very light rim made by a company who has been doing carbon for longer than just about anyone in the industry and they're doing it at a price that is pretty impressive.
It allows us to build a modern (shape, width, etc...) 1250 gram set of clinchers using all well known branded parts (nothing generic) and still keep the price at under $1800.
Haven't really seen that as a problem with newer rims from companies like Enve, Zipp, etc... Still seems to be common with some of the generic far East rims. Shouldn't be a problem when used correctly as they've been tested with no problems up to 230c. (446F) If you're getting your rims that hot something isn't right.xena wrote:Madcow are the clincher rims going to be subject to the usual over heating and blowing on descents ?

Curious what the weights are of the built wheels, that already have Tune hubs.
Extralite to those 30mm Carbon Tubular hoops sound dreamy.
