    Rims are great.

    Laced up to hope hubs and sapim spokes. Very tight diameter for tire fit. Should resist burping well when set up tubeless. Stiff, responsive. Love it.

    Very solid fit and finish

    The fit and finish of these wheels is very very good. Seem to be really well built. Set up tubeless with ease. Used only a hand pump. The ride is solid and stiff. Super stoked so far.

    Excellent quality

    Had Carbonfan build me up a set of the 35mm (29mm internal) rims on dt swiss 240 hubs with bladed spokes.

    Having built many wheels myself, the first thing I did when I received the wheels (which took approximately 3 weeks to get to my door from the time I placed the order) was throw them in my truing stand to confirm everything was where I was comfortable. True/round/dished properly, and the spoke tensions were consistent. No signs of spoke windup.

    The quality of the rims themselves appears excellent. They are a really good looking wheel.

    On the trail, they have performed well meeting all my expectations. I have not yet had a major rock strike so I cant yet say how they will hold up in adverse situations. I have run these on my hardtail and my 140mm full suspension bike - complements both bike types very well.

    After about 200km of use, spoke tensions are unchanged.

    The only thing I am not a huge fan of is the logo decals - I may switch mine from the white to a dark grey just to tone it down a little bit (obviously this is not a performance issue, just an issue with my eyes!!!!)

    I will definitely be looking into carbonfan rims again when I build up a 29er.

    300 miles on 35mm wheelset

    As I mentioned in my initial review, the fit and finish of these wheels is as good as any I have seen. Put your favorite brand name on them and you cannot tell the difference ( except when you pay your bill). I have over 300 miles on this set of wheels on every type of terrain from rock gardens to rooty single track. I have had no problems of any kind. The wheel builders at Carbonfan are second to none.

    One thing about these rims is they are a dream to set up tubeless. Used a floor pump every time. I am currently running a second set of tires and each tubeless application was super easy. You will find that you will be able to run lower tire pressure as the carbon rims are much stiffer than aluminum. Also riding a wider rim allows this too. I found myself running about 5 psi less on each end. They track straight and allow you to push much harder in the corners.

    I am pretty picky about what equipment I use on my bike and I would totally recommend Carbonfan rims and wheel sets to anyone.
