The only EN test results I have seen have been for a made in China frame that I bought recently. My Cervelos didn't come with them. Neither did the Reynolds carbon rims I had built into wheels. And of course I have no idea what the EN tests actually test, if they are valid or useless, or if they are easily gamed.
I don't think that there are more than a couple of people here, all of whom are in the industry, who could make sense of an EN or any other certification. And they know enough about CF engineering that they probably don't need the test results to know if a CF part is well made.
The rest of us make our decisions based on the company's reputation and the reports of other people who have bought stuff from them. There's plenty of information here and on other sites to allow one to make a reasonably informed decision about FarSports products, considering that we are talking about bike wheels and not an aircraft frame. If you're not comfortable with that there are plenty of other vendors to choose from.
No we aren't talking about an aircraft frame or other machines alike, but we are talking about the contact I have with the road when I'm doing 55mph. I'm sorry that I feel the need to ask a couple questions to feel safe about a wheelset that I have not been 100% sold on based on the info I have read. Dont act like I am the only one who is asking questions about the durability and performance about these wheels. I also go by what others report back with, but when I see a handful of bad experiences, it makes me want to dig a little bit more. Maybe I took your tone the wrong way here, but there are 12 pages of info in this thread alone and not all of it is good, so excuse me for wanting to ask some questions.
