At 190gm for a rear hub with Campy compatibility, I want one, but has anyone any experience with how they hold up?

I do know that at least one person who deals FRM parts (or has dealt them before, he had some distributor problems iirc) posts there regularly. a lot of European posters as well. it's likely you'd get more feedback than here.

Thanks, I looked over there, he sells FRM though and I want an unbiased opinion.

I decided to go for it anyway, 28h Feather and Team SL's, laced to Ambrosio Excel-Light rims (real double eyelet 420gm clincher rims) 2x with Black Revolutions, probably use gold nipples to really look like a pimp lol.

I hope I can get em built in time to put some rides in before the Spooktacular.

Local part time wheel builder, he does it as a hobby more than anything, but he's good (and busy). Mail order you can get them from light-bikes.com I think according to their posts on MTBR.com.
Yes I carry FRM and Ambrosia Rims...DIRT BOY

I have the 03 FRM PRO SL Road hubs with Ambrosio Excel-Light rims and DT Spokes (Revolution front and NGS, Competition GS) with Alloy nipples cheap right now.

e-mail me for a price: sales@light-bikes.com
The 2004 FRM parts will be out hopefully next month.

I have been using their products for almost 2 yrs and everyhting seems really nice from them. Quality and workmanship looks nice.

I will give you my opinion wehter good, bad or netrual on anyhting I carry.

I am not biased and strive to be honest and this is the only way for a snmall business to exceed! :-)
