The Blackwell rim is lighter by about 50g each. The thing I don't like about the Blackwell rim is that it requires special brake pad holders that move the brake pads down lower, they come with the rims but I still don't like that you have to use them.

I am leaning towards the FP60's as well. The convenience of the aluminum brake surface and the cheaper price are my reasoning.

Thanks for your input.

Troy - the last set of wheels you built for me have been great as well.

I just had a custom FP60 built for me using an extra Zipp rear hub that I had from a Zipp 303 rim cracking (not covered by crash warranty) and CXray spokes. Its every bit as good as the Zipp 404 clinchers I have and a lot less cost. The rim was less than half the cost of a comparable 404 clincher rim. It rides nice and the quality of the rim is top notch.
