How's the warranty with Roval wheels?

Really like that root beer color on the Fuji

On paper it's lifetime to original owner (me), two years to second owner. So I'm fairly optimistic here.

That's petty sweet... is that a tent or just a bag over the rear wheel?

So what are you guys liking in the way of Chinese carbon rims these days? Just like a roster of trusted brands that I can sift through to find what I need.

The specific specs I'm after are - tubeless clincher, rim brake, 24h, ~20mm internal and ~32mm deep. Anecdotally it seemed like a lot of the spam emails I got from Chinese carbon companies back at my old job had offerings along those lines, I just don't know who's good and who's shit.

I think @RMR has a connection with some wuhan wheel maker that's supposed to be legit.

got some light bicycle rims arriving Monday, having used a couple sets of their rims on my MTB in the past i've every confidence in them!

went for the WR45, which has the following specs:

45mm deep
25mm internal
32mm external

(little wider than zipp 303's, but same depth)

building them up 2 cross, 24 spoke, on J-bend dt 350 CL hubs with sapim D light spokes and brass nips

wheels will be 1,600g which ain't bad! available in both hooked or hookless, I opted for hooked

the mtb versions i've ran before were hookless, however mtb tyres have much stiffer beads

Impressed with the quality of the rims, the spoke holes are now drilled at a slight angle to follow the spoke angle which is a neat touch

Included a photo of them offered up against a 28c gp4000 on my road bike, so you can see just how wide these are! The 38c gravel grinders sit nicely on them and sealed up tubeless no bother
