Chinese Carbon Rims or Wheels?
« on: January 02, 2014, 09:39:21 PM »
Hi All,


I'm looking to get a new wheelset and want to know if anyone local has bought any of the Chinese Carbon Rims.


Here are the rims I'm thinking about:

I've read the reviews on MTBR and PB and am willing to buy them, but wanted to get some local first hand input and opinions.


Thanks,


Miggy

China doesn't need any more of our money...

Maybe I am missing something, but a hookless bead design does not sound good.

There is a pretty convincing review vid done by MTBR on Specialized's hookless bead carbon rim. Surprising test results setup tubeless.
