Reliable carbon clinchers

It took me a while to finish research among many manufacturers for reliable carbon rims, which wouldn't break a bank.
While most of such manufacturers are located in China, I was also able to find and check few ones located in Europe, mainly Netherlands, Germany and France

Wheels without bullsh*t

Wheels which I'm building are ridden by me, on daily basis. 
They are tested hard on climbs, descends, bad surfaces, in sun, snow, rain and whatever else can happen you on the road.

This is the best and most true reassurance of my work I can give you

This weekend was pretty busy. Finally carbon clinchers are done.
Sneak peak preview here:

Affordable road wheels for mountain climbing and fast descends...part II

Few posts ago I was mentioning about the project of road light and stiff wheels for climbing

I did one set for my customer and loved wheels so much that I decided to build one for myself

Of course, I customized a bit the build by giving two white spokes to each wheel so all would match to my ritchey road logic which has white handlebar, stem and seatpost. 
Two blue nipples on each wheel are matching to my bartape which is light-blue colour

Plan for the weekend was very ambitious... finish two sets of the wheels, cut & prep spokes for carbon build, update blog, cut & prep decals.. etc.

Saturday morning sun came out in Switzerland and so the sky became blue, really blue.
As a consequence workshop got closed and I spent two full days on the road ;-)

Today, set of classy Kinlin wheels went to Alex. 
Clean build, semi-aero, light weight (1430g) laced radially on front and 2x on rear will be mounted on renovated steel road frame.
