    China carbon wheels

    Anyone has bought wheels from yishun?

    I'm interested in 50mm clincher:

    http://yishuntrade.en.alibaba.com/pr..._wheelset.html

    Price is very good (490$), but does anyone have any ideas about quality?

    I recently received a set of carbon wheels from another seller (sinfong) that I connected with on alibaba. I ordered the 38mm carbon rims with aluminum braking surface paired with Pillar 1422 spokes, red anodized Powerway hubs (which I'm pretty sure are the same hubs that Yishun uses only hers are branded as Chosen). The build quality looks good from an asthetic standpoint and the set is 1600 grams. I'm actually going to try to sell these because I wish I'd ordered the full carbon clinchers instead. Here's some shots of the set I received.

    I'll admit that I was skeptical about buying something from some unknown seller overseas. But I spent about 7 months emailing back and forth to the seller requesting price quotes for diff't builds and what not. The seller was always pretty responsive to my requests and there was also a group buy for a similiar build on the bikeforums.net site that left me feeling as if it wasn't too much of a gamble to go after something like this.

    I bought some months ago 38mm carbon wheelset from yishun ( yishunstefano@gmail.com )
    I've tested and used in a lot of race, and I can tell you that are very good for the price.
    They are well built, have very good hubs and they are lighter than other prducts that often costs double the price. Before buying i ask in other forums and I realize that a lot of people are buying from this company...

    Yours is tubular or clincher?

    Mine is tubular and arrived after 10 days. I know that for clincher you have to wait 30/35 days.

    Difference between brand wheels and this yishun in my opinion is just stickers

    Now probably I'm going to order 50mm tubular red hubs and red nipples China carbon wheels-50mm-tubular-large-.jpg

    wow why did these wheels pop up so late? why didn't anyone bring them up earlier? $430 for a carbon clincher, 1600g, good (unknown?) quality, 1600g/set.

    Does anyone have anymore info on the rim/spokes brand? how do they compare to DT Comp/Champion spokes? Would these carbon rims be better/worse than something like the BWW Blackset Race rim?

    They were obviously trying to hold out on you.

    The Blackset Race are alloy first, so it is difficult to compare.

    I guess if you went with the 20mm carbon clinchers (assuming they are available), they'd probably be lighter than the Blacksets, but I doubt they'd be as durable. With the carbon wheels you can get a deeper profile at a lower weight compared to alloy, but carbon clinchers are relatively new and frankly, I'd be leary of their durability and engineering. Maybe that means I'm missing out on a great deal. I'll take that chance. The tubulars look pretty appealing to me though.

    Talking with YishunStefano perhaps I've changed my mind. Probably I'll buy 50mm tubular full carbon. Becouse:
    - it's cheaper 400$
    - it's lighter 1425g pair
    - It's available in 15 days
    - And I always wanted to try tubular...
    Searching around Chosen hubs should be very good and pics confirm quality production.

    I'm sure that hubs are very good, and spokes http://www.cnspoke.com/products/Spoke_MAC/aero/aero.htm should be too.

    After all 95% of wheels (as frames) that we are using are built in China

    Got this response from that email yesterday:

    All our carbon wheels are manufactured in accordance with international quality standard. With high quality products and the professional and trustable service, we have won a high reputation among customers.

    Because we have our own factory, so we can give you the best price.

    We have 20mm, 38mm, 50mm, 60mm, 88mm and Disc both clincher than tubular

    Price for 20mm tubular (shimano or campagnolo) is 380.00$. Weight is about 1237 g.
    Price for 20mm clincher (shimano or campagnolo) is 470.00$. Weight is about 1427 g.
    Price for 38mm tubular (shimano or campagnolo) is 390.00$. Weight is about 1327 g.
    Price for 38mm clincher (shimano or campagnolo) is 480.00$. Weight is about 1507 g.
    Price for 50mm tubular (shimano or campagnolo) is 400.00$. Weight is about 1459 g.

    The cost of shipping to USA by ems is 70.00usd/carton, one pair in one carton. For ems, it need one week

    You can pay with paypal (+ 7% commission) or Western Union or Bank Transfer or any way you like.

    Usually, the sample delivery time is 15-30 days more or less. For every wheels, we supply skewers and brake pads for free, and we also offer 1 year guarantee for our wheels.

    For now, the hubs (black, white or red) we are using are from Chosen (high quality) from Taiwan, and there 2 sealed bearings in the front and 4 bearings in the rear. the bearings are from japan.

    The spokes we are using are aero flat spokes from cnspoke.

    I have great interest in developing business with you, it will be my big pleasure if i have opportunities to be on service of you in the future. Have more questions, pls feel free to let me know.

    Just to let you know, a lot of racers use our wheelset. So the quality is very high.

    Look forward to your early reply.
    Thanks and best regards
    Yours
    Stefano
    I am kicking the idea around of getting one of those wheelsets too.

    These are for complete carbon wheel sets...or are they the bonded to alu wheels?

    Lol...I might man up and get a set of the 38mm tubular.
