Aluminum is a poor heat conductor, so localized heating on it is to be expected.
    My wheels are Farsports also.
    If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

    if it's not of concern for you, than that's good

    for those who may not be as unconcerned as you are, the information is out there.

    LOL, chances are they may have better resins in China as they don't have the regulations that we deal with here. I spent a good part of my work efforts dealing with failing materials when regulations kicked in limiting what can be used in the US.

    Please provide information that tells me that Chinese wheels are not to ridden downhill. I believe any concerns that are out there apply to all carbon wheels with carbon brake tracks, not just Chinese wheels.

    Ok iv finished two rides now on the carbon wheels, I'm very impressed with the quality & finish. Ride one was during cold frosty weather, ride two wet & windy. There was no handling or braking issues. The wheels were very responsive and I have noted a increase in speed. I can reccomend this seller and I will purchase from them again.

    Any questions please ask.

    skott - If you purchased the 50mm clinchers you posted a link for in your first post then the wheels should weigh in at 1650 +/- 10 grams... something is not right.
    1650+/-10g/set

    Old post I know. All of the Yoeleo wheels are UCI approved, so has that changed the minds of the cautious ones?

    Yeah a bit slow. forgive. I figured it was sarcasm, but wasn't sure if it was directed at the OP or the poster who had issues with Chinese carbon wheels (thinking this person).
