:shock:
Reigning hill climb champion Dan Evans has been riding the new wheels already and had this to say about them. Obviously, it’s all very positive…

"First ride on the new tubulars last night and they’re seriously impressive. Obviously they’re lovely and light but the main thing that comes across is how stiff and solid they feel, nothing like other climbing wheelsets on the market that’s for sure.”

Fairwheel can build up FSE 25s with proper spoke counts and hit that weight - for not much more money. Right now, I'm hard pressed to believe anyone can touch the braking power of FSE.

Total weight will be ~1100 grams but you'll be hard pressed to beat the braking capability of the wheelset I'm building. Total cost = $640

Plus, Hunts are usually 10% overweight.

FSE just launched their own EVO 23T climbing wheels. A good deal lighter but also a whole lot more expensive as they're using Extralite hubs. Rims are obviously Far Sports FSL25-TM-23.

Same rims I'm building my disc brake wheels with FWIW. Actual rim weights in my case were 253 and 254 grams. FSE is claiming 220 +/- 30 grams making me think they are just grabbing the lightest rims Farsports make which happen to fall just under 250 grams and thus just inside of their generous weight tolerance. But I hope I'm wrong given what they are charging.

building wheels that light is easy. I do it when asked with a 38mm deep rim and more spokes.

Impressive. Any scale shots to share of such a build?

My set have tyres and a cassette on now. But I could scale shot them I suppose. My own set are a bit heavier (1020g ) because I used carbon Ti hubs. Switching to extralite saves 45g.

I used to drool over such wheels before but now I found a seller here in China selling 1150gr 50mm clinchers, high temp, 28mm wide. So I'll be going with them if I win the jackpot.

The problem with rims that wide is the curvature is probably made for Cross tubs not road tubs. A 27mm tubular may sit high at the edges.

Wheels weighed. 38mm deep by narrow v section tubular. The tyres are 275g each I think and the cassette is SRAM red. The tubs are glued on with around 20g of glue per rim but this is an estimate.

My rational is these are for hill climb events and therefore narrow 21 or 22mm tyres are fitted. So wider rims are not needed for these.

Front 757g rear 1001g. So with different tubs I could knock off 200g.

How much are the rims, if you don’t mind me asking ?

Thanks

I paid $320 including shipping to the US and Paypal fees. My rims are likely lighter than average as I did not have them add the braking surface (disc bike). I've commented elsewhere that when I first mentioned using them with disc hubs they told me they needed to add 30 grams of reinforcement to the rims. I questioned them on that and they agreed to sell me the standard rim minus the rim brake track.
