I may be a bit daft, but I can't seem to find any info about the difference btw these three wheelsets from Xiamen Farsports - FSC38-TM, FSC38-TN and FSC38-TC. Anyone who can enlighten me?

I apologize of the question already has been answered!

TM is the lightest, due the different hubs and rims, it has ceramic hubs

CM is the clincher version of the TM

Thanks!

Sorry, missed the clincher thing as it was listed on their tubular page.

I may not have formulated my question very well; I get that the tubs are different weights and that the hubs can be different. I guess I was looking for the difference btw the rims themselves, if any.

The -*N rims are cheaper/heavier than the -*M ones.

Usually the first letter of the second group is T or C depending on tubular or clincher. I have not seen TC rims but they keep coming out with new models. Maybe tubular cyclocross? But the web site shows the CX tubulars as FSJ-50 and CX clinchers as FSJ-50C-25.
