Sorry for the late update. Feder wheels arrived and I've logged a few rides. Weight is around 1211gms with Carbon-Ti centerlock hubs and Sapim cx-ray spokes which has brought the Open U.P weight to around 6.7kg with 30mm schwalbe pro ones. So far very happy, they seem stiff and there is no disc rub when sprinting out of the saddle.

Is this the Feder series? Which spec did you choose (internal width; external width; hook or hookless? Look like 30mm profile

Does anybody know what is happening with Farsports? I ordered bars on 13. 1. I was assured that they will send it before Chinese holidays but that has not happened. Now they are silent and don't reply to any of my emails..

I thought the Spring festival is already over..there is no info on their webpage..

Are they talking with anybody right now?

Edit: so it seems all Chinese companies are closed at least to 10th Feb..

They are dealing with a nationwide medical crisis right now, and I think we should be glad that they are trying their best to get people to stay home for a while longer. I ordered stuff from China as well just before new year and they aren't shipped yet too. Guess we just have to be patient..

Keep us posted on how they ride, Stiphodon. How much do you weigh and what type of riding do you do?
I'm 190 cm/85 kg and do a lot of climbing - this wheelset would be ideal for me but I'm concerned they might be a little too light.

If they work tho, that would be amazing. 150 g lighter than Roval CLX 32 and only $1k!

I'm 78kg and do lots of climbing as well, plus riding on rough asphalt. They have been going great and seem robust, but still early days. I'm treating these as a daily riding wheelset rather than a race day wheelset. However, I wouldn't use them off-road....

Nice to hear they are good so far, keep us updated please!
Did they build with alloy nipples or brass nipples?
