    Must admit the 50mm clinchers look good, be interested on hearing on anyone's feedback on leadtime as i recollect there were some issues earlier on this year (apologies didn't mean to hijack your thread there, i thought it may be relevant) ?
    I like shiny bikes - especially Italian ones.....!!
  • No probs, any info is good as far i'm concerned.

    Bit of a bump for this thread, but has anyone got any 'longish term' experience with these?

    Thinking of getting a set of deep clinchers and these seem to fit the bill perfectly...

    I ordered 90mm tubs which took about 10 weeks to arrive. I know of others who waited only 2- 3 for a clincher set. I was about to buy another set (car facing hefty bill as of yesterday) of their wheels in clincher as I loved the first tubular set which Im keeping for best.

    No problems with my wheels .....yet.

    Had a SRAM Force groupset off them. Best price at the time (£600) and was all boxed and not a grey import or taken off a bike. Took a while to come but they kept me informed.
    Nice people!
    The wheel photos are all mixed up so it's hard to tell what they look like. Clearly pictures of sprints when you look at the clinchers and vica versa.
  • I have looked into these alot recently, and they have got alot of good reviews.

    Tri Talk ave quite a few threads on these, all saying much the same, great wheels, and nice compnay to deal with.

    Im 90% sure I will be buying myself a pair of 50mm tubs an the Mrs some 38m clinchers next summer.

    Yes - look good only thing that comes close are quest 50mm carbon clinchers aT £599 - these have the advantage of having alloy rims - so you don't need to swap brake blocks over - as you do with the Fuerto's.

    I have seen 2010 Mavic Cosmic Carbone for £650 - but these seem to have been snapped up now.

    I would like some deep sections - just for bling - I don't TT \ Race or anything - would the Fuerto's be suitable ?
