More Info:
as you can tell, i buy a lot of shit off aliexpress/china, nothing has ever broken on me, but sometimes i do not receive the package. i enjoy using quality stuff that i got for cheap. i highly rec shopping there if you never have, you can find some real cheap quality stuff that you cant get anywhere else. the rims were 400 total, i added silver nipple washers to increase strength. this is my go to carbon setup: chinese rims + nipple washers + sapim spokes. total cost me around 700, which is an amazing price for a handbuilt carbon set. i try to advocate this route to people, especially if you are trying carbon for first time. its is the best bang for your buck wheelset option that exists in my opinion. weight hovers around 14.5 lbs - 15 lbs
