The ones at Interbike were using Zipp manufactured rims that had been clear-coated. Absolutely beautiful.

I have a set of FiR wheels, and I love them. They are absolutely bomb proof, but that's also in part to having them built professionally.

I just got a set!

I had problems with AC wheels and fitting a Campy cassette (see AC 350 thread) so I got these instead. Campy cassette fit right on without problems, the (straight pull spoke) hubs are very smooth when spun in the hand, and the rims were true with even tension. Mine are 18h front, 24h rear, and I'm going to weigh them before I glue on tires so I'll report the weights.
