I bought some months ago 38mm carbon wheelset from yishun ( [email protected] )
I've tested and used in a lot of race, and I can tell you that are very good for the price.
They are well built, have very good hubs and they are lighter than other prducts that often costs double the price. Before buying i ask in other forums and I realize that a lot of people are buying from this company...

Yours is tubular or clincher?

Mine is tubular and arrived after 10 days. I know that for clincher you have to wait 30/35 days.

Difference between brand wheels and this yishun in my opinion is just stickers :D

Now probably I'm going to order 50mm tubular red hubs and red nipples :thumbsup: View attachment 203495

These wheels from Yishun look nice and are very reasonable, even with shipping and Paypal fees - $578 for a 38mm set, $580 for 50mm, total. He seems trustworthy (and we'll know more once some members get their wheels).

I wonder what the discount for an order of say 10 sets would be? Has anyone tried a group buy for something like this?
I don't think there should be a huge saving ;) Anyway just ask... :cool:

the rims are gigantex

used by ffwd, token, pro lite... and many others
My experience with this wheels are very positive. After 4000km (tubular 38mm) i can tell that are very light but at the same time very strong. I'm a light rider, but the road around my house are often in bad condition

How about Miracle Trade?

I pulled the trigger on their 50mm carbon clinchers. Price was 607 $ including shipping to Finland and Paypal fees. Does anyone know if Miracle Trade is legit? They said that it takes 3 months to manufacture my wheels. Waiting will be frustrating if I can't be sure if they are real.
Some people I know order from miracle trade. They have good wheels too, but they are always late in shpping and they use cheaper hubs and spokes than yishun

Whats the depth of these wheels? If i do get a clincher set, i'd like them this deep. I know they will be heavier than the Dura Ace 7850 clincher wheelset (~1550g) http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=25969 , but is the carbon worth it? How is the ride of carbon deep dish wheels different than aluminum rims?
It's difficult to answer, i haven't tried the Dura Ace... I prefer carbon rims (I've tested already 3 different brand) becouse if the quality is high they are "stiff but confortable", this means reactivity.

Does anyone know any details of the hubs on these? Are they user serviceable, how many pawls, etc. etc.? Do you think 50mm clinchers would stand up to a 200lb rider for everyday riding? Currently riding Reynolds Assaults and have had no issues so far in about 3500 miles.

In last pages they show you how to disassemble their products...

A friend of mine has 20mm tubular and his weight is 86kg (186lb) and use it in hilly courses...

Today I wrote to Stefano about Chosen hubs and he replied me:

"If you want we also have Novatec hubs.

Alloy Novatec are:
http://www.novatec.com.tw/novatec/english/p_show.php?sid=45
http://www.novatec.com.tw/novatec/english/p_show.php?sid=44
and cost 10$ more than Chosen hubs (but in my opinion Chosen are better)

Carbon Novatec are:
http://www.novatec.com.tw/novatec/english/p_show.php?sid=40
http://www.novatec.com.tw/novatec/english/p_show.php?sid=41
and cost 100$ more than Chosen hubs (they are very good and light, but more expansive)

Choice is yours"

So they have a wide choice, even if I think that Chosen for the moment are the best buy

mmmm...I already have my china made cf bike. Now I think I'll finish it up with 50mm clincher cf wheels. Anyone have anything bad to say about yishunstefano?
I bought my wheels after contacting yishun stefano. :thumbsup:
Yes at the moment there are a lot of people that are buying china frame directly (and usually are happy), I think that you'll be happy with wheels too :D
