I had quotes back from both these companies for a set of carbon clinchers and wondering if any has any experiences of either/both, or even has the wheels they are recommending. I've narrowed it down to these, I think


50mm clincher with Novatec hubs, cx-ray spokes. weight ~1420g. price 578USD plus 80USD p&p (chosen hub option is 10usd less/20g lighter and hubsmith hubs is 15usd more/70g lighter)


Model YS-CP50C 50mm clincher with Chosen hubs, aerolite sha-da (pillar) spokes. weight ~1530g. price 499USG plus 75USD p&p (this is what they are recommending but also to a novatec version, no idea on price but prob not much different)

I presume both will also ship with skewers and pads, but need to confirm with Farsports. Any thoughts/experiences??

    I used Farsport for 50mm clincher rims (not a wheelset). Great communication and almost a year on I'm still very happy with my purchase.

    ILM Zero7 - have you used them both then? What did they do to earn your distrust?
    More problems but still living....

    thanks for response amaferanga. Leaning more towards Farsports due to them using cx-rays, even though I'm paying around 80usd more. Just going to try and read up on Chosen hubs v novatec, see what I can find.

    Now to decide on finish with new colnago that arrived this morning. Matt black/white cx1 so may keep the matt theme
