Hi,

I'm looking at purchasing a set of deep rim carbon clinchers and found this guy http://www.rideargylewheels.com has anyone got any experience of ridding their wheels or can recommend and similarly handbuilt wheels.

Thanks.

    ... and that bike with counterfeit Cosmic rims is a good advertisement for his business? :shock:

    I would steer clear of cheap carbon clinchers unelss you are prepared to bin them. Either have a set built when you know what components are being used or pay so little you don't care if they fail. Carbonzone on fleabay do 50mm clinchers for £273 so thats cheap enough to be disposable items.

    Otherwise go for carbon tub rims (Gigantex and the like) or get a quality set of carbon clinchers like Reynolds Assault.
