    Ican Wheels

    Anyone familiar with ican wheels? When I searched it here I got the Chinese Carbon Thread but no specific post. Even if it is a Chinese carbon wheel, well, arenít most? Iím far from averse to a Chinese manufacturer. So Iím wondering if anyone has any experience with these?

    Hello
    I'm Italian, last year I bought a set of FL40 with Powerway R51 hubs and Sapim CxRay spokes, I had a problem with the front rim (braking track) and the rim was replaced for free, the rear hub is not very solid, with these hub hubs is necessary use very solid quick releases.

    In Italy there is a forum dedicated to road bike called "BDC Forum" ,in this forum there is a very long discussion dedicated to Ican products.

    Some have bought wheels for themselves and their friends and are very happy, others have had some problems.

    If I can afford it, I recommend the new Aero series wheels, as far as the hubs are concerned, I can tell you that the new Ican R01 are Formula SP-60 SP-201, I don't like the spoke pattern, but it seems to be fine, Formula is an important OEM supplier (Trek, Cannondale, ecc ecc) but if you can let him take the DtSwiss hubs.

    Or consider taking only the rims and assembling the wheels with the hubs of your choice.

    My bike with Ican Fl40

    The Ican staff is committed, but they are a little confusing.

    There are many videos for their products.

    I hope I was helpful.

    The point is not whether an item is MADE in China. As you say, most items are now made there or elsewhere in Asia. The point is how reputable is the company? If it's a well known brand with a good reputation, they will have stringent manufacturing standards even if made in China. If it's a no-name or unknown brand, do you really know what you are getting? Especially if it comes to carbon, I wouldn't want to experiment just to save a few $$.

    Furthermore, my take is that it is bad enough that we are manufacturing very little here in the US anymore. I would prefer to at least buy from a USA vendor.

    Ican has been around for a while and has a decent reputation. (I have no experience with their wheels)

    They sell on Amazon. Free one day prime shipping

    And have a U.S. warehouse.

    So they're as much of a US vendor and most anything else.

    China's carbon frame, Fasterway Classic, I've bought this frame in october 2018, It's not a knock-off but It's looks very close to the new Factor O2 VAM (Ä5000).

    I'd like this frame, direct Mount brakes, BBright, good tyre clearance, stiff enough but very comfortable, good descending quality, cheaper and no logo.
