What is XMIPlay's response to your complaint?

might want to order some bb clips. they are expensive if you want them fast but cheap if you have time. I'm going to see if it can find something that works at the local hardware store today.

Why would he need BB clips on a PF30 BB? The PF30 shell holds the bearings instead of the retaining clips in a BB30 configuration.

depending on where he got it from. mine has the bb integrated into the frame and bearing press directly into the frame and need bb clips. terminology get confuseded when talking about bb. at least for me it does.

I got my wheels today, and I'm pretty disappointed ....
1> the weight does not correspond to what was agreed.
I had asked for 1500gr wheels, I weighed 1675gr.

2> I had asked the scotch for tubeless mounting .... there is none.

3 <I had requested the valves ..... they are missing.

 I will not recommend to xmiplay, for a first order of carbon wheels, the disappointment is quite important.
I sent him an email to signify my disappointment.

I thought to win about 400-500gr, suddenly, it will be necessary for me to feel happy if I win 300gr.
finally I should have taken aluminum wheels at a fitter I found on the web, it would have cost me the same price, with a lower weight and a hub better .......

now, I hope I'm not bored with these wheels, because I don't want to have any contact with XMiplay anymore.

Full build thread where you can see the paint process.
and yes, it is a $700 frame with $3500 wheels.

@Tom, what for you are the advantages of these type of wheels ?
Ok, the killer look ;) but then...

I wrote a full review for Velochannel : (that's french, google translate is your friend ;) )
to sum up : light, stiff (h & v), wide, reliable.

It appears that the FM058 has been rechristened as the "FM258." There's no difference between the two, and it is still possible to find the product page for the FM058 through a Google search. I sent Hongfu an email asking if the new frame was finally available in size 21", but the Lunar New Year shutdown is in full effect until the 26th of this month.

The geometry of FM258 is identical to 2017 FM058, but they changed the top tube to make it a 100% Scott Spark sibling. I like the new shape and if they finally create a 21" version, it may be the one for me. Even though I still don't understand the 2.2 tire clearance. At least make it 2.35"!

Would this be considered a more hardcore hardtail like the Kona Honzo?

Pumajr, how has the headset been holding up? Any idea of the specifications of it in case I want to replace it with a CC or something? Did you use the BB?
