    Who makes a good low profile rim?
    Looking for around 25mm deep, 3k weave, high gloss finish.
    Say 28 spoke rear and 24 spoke front.

    This might be what you're looking for.

    Just ordered a new set of Yoeleo wheels. This time I'm going with 38mm. I noticed they increased their prices after the website refresh. For us in the US, the price increase maybe because of the new tariffs, but the prices are still way more reasonable than the name brand wheels around here. Plus, I am very happy with their 60mm wheels so far.

    I'm starting my research on carbon wheels, seems like the eBay/Chinese wheels have come a long way from when I first started seeing them pop up. Is yoeleo a reputable manufacturer?

    They are UCI approved. That says a lot about them. I have 2 sets of their wheels 60mm and 38mm. They are quality as far as I am concern and make spending $4k for a set of wheels carbon wheels seem so foolish. The prices have increased a bit since I purchased my first set, but they had a 15% sale going on around Christmas. Contact Katrina and see if they have the sale, if not just ask for a discount and see what she says.

    Gigantex are very well finished. The brake track is machined differently than all Chinese rims. Nipple washers are highly recommended, tension below 120kgf

    From Chinese brands I'd look for new type of rims with graphene/laser finished brake track which improves significantly braking in rain.

    Thanks for the tip, I did notice the UCI approved seal so that's reassuring. I'll ask for a discount, can't hurt to ask right?

    Looking for advice here, and forgive my laziness. I am looking for a set of training wheels to replace some ENVE 2.2's I have been using. Looking for recommendations as I am not quite sure I am seeing what is out there. Here is my setup.'

    1. Tubeless
    2. Disc
    3. 100x12/142x12 (Allez Sprint)
    4. As low profile as possible, like the 2.2's (18.5 Internal Width BTW)

    Anyone have any recommendations on a reputable builder?
