    Fairwheel rim roundup - For Horatio

    2013 Rim Roundup - Fair Wheel Bikes

    Get your read on H.


    Open Pro:
    Nice rim when it was more widely used. The later rims I worked with weren’t as round and consistent. Lots of complaints about rattling slag by the joint. People have resorted to inserting foam into a small hole by the joint to stop the rattle since the pieces have no way of being removed. Eyelets have been known to loosen up and make noise as well. I’m not really sure why Mavic even makes these rims anymore.

    Thanks Blakey. The Open Pros work for me. I still think the H+Son rims while good, a ridiculously overpriced for what they are though.

    This.
    Ridiculously overpriced? Hardly.

    Last set of TB14s I bought, which arrived this week, cost me AUD120 shipped from Ha-Merica.

    Worth bearing in mind that H is dedicated to Shitmano... So the toilet paper analogy may not be too far off the mark in his case.

    haha how did I miss this dig??

    Look, it's just that when every hipster is screaming 'architype' this 'architype' that, 'they're amazing' I naturally become suspicious. If the hard ano version lasts just like an OP CD I would be happy.
