Dear kylefoo I do hate to sound impatient but it has now been a further 3 days and still no reply or acknowledgement from Farsport regarding my dodgy front wheel. Could someone please contact me to sort this out.


Anthony, pls check your email.

I have a set of 50mm N that I bought in Oct 2012. Will the hub fit 11s Shimano ? Or will I need a replacement hub, or a re-dish ?

Thanks - Mark

LSiena0206, our shimano 11sp have not been launched in OCT 2012. Replacing the freehub can work.

Kylefoo, are you also able to offer white Sapim xc-ray spokes?

I would love to buy a set of 38mm clinchers if this is an option. :beerchug:

FINISH
50mm Glossy or Matte - I am torn,
leaning towards matte - but wondering which is closer to zipp reynolds ?
I sense most folks prefer matte but wonder is it will look horrible once skuffed up a bit.
which is better for decals?
What did you go for ?

On velobuild it says 50mm is 3k only. No UD. Can you choose matte finish? It's not a choice in there.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the basalt braking surface and the high temperature durable surface on the 50mmx24mm carbon clincher? Kyle?

Hello Trillo, regarding 50mm*24mm, so far we only supply basalt brake surface version but not high temperature surface.

It seems that there is no option on which, the 11sp version is newly launched, so havenot updated by moderator.

My FSC50-CAs came in today. Initially, I'm very pleased.

These wheels came very protectively packaged and undamaged. Double walled wheel box with spacers and airbags. The box was pristine and completely undinged. It looked like it came from the next town over, not Xiamen. Nice job EMS!

Spare brake shoes were included in a separate bag with the skewers.

Weights (no skewers, no rim tape):
F - 680g
R - 860g

1,540g for alloy braking surface 50MM aero wheels is very respectable. It's also right in line with Kyle's estimates. Again, very pleased by this.

Braking surface is machine scored. I went with the 3K matte finish (matches my bike) and it looks good on the wheels.

I had these built with Novatec 291/482 hubs which look very similar to the DT Swiss 240s. CX-Delta (?) spokes seem tightly tensioned judging by sound.

Came out of the box dead true, I'll need to ride them to see if they stay that way.
