    I'll be watching this thread because the Chinese carbon thread on RBR is humongous and very hard to follow.

    RBR still better as this forum is likely to tell you to beware and some fictional story of the frame exploding. And troll comments like you get what you pay for.

    Haven't read of anyone riding a Yoeleo frame, but haven't read anything bad about their wheels yet. So far they are light and durable. Finish is good etc, hubs are good.

    No idea who makes their frames or where they get their carbon from. Could be Chinese carbon. My frame is Toray from Japan.

    The problem on RBR is replies/answers pop up all over the place, making the thread very difficult to follow.

    Not really if you got a specific question. You don't need to read the whole thread. Just ask what you want to ask, someone will answer.

    I ordered a set of wheels over a year ago from them, 50mm tubulars. Around that time I moved over to Campy so I sold them at my cost to a friend who races and does a lot of fast rides and they have been bomb-proof. I have since then ordered two more wheel sets $430 and $500) (not from yoeleo but from Chinese sellers on aliexpress) and their hubs are excellent, light and roll forever to the point where I routinely pass heavier guys on downhills without pedaling. This while putting over 10k miles last year. So I really cannot justify spending big money for brand name when these wheels are so great for me...of course this has been just my experience, for what is worth.

    Worst part about 'em is you have to do this all the while you ride them

    Don't be afraid of his attrocious engrish. If you write him, he (yoeleo) will write you back quickly and i think their customer service is good. I like it when he greets you with "dear my friend".

    I should be a salesperson for yoeleo and an anti ENVE spokesperson. The only time i'd choose the enves over the yoeleos is during mountain passes in which the superb braking surface is a necesity. Other than that i think the yoeleos roll smoother and they are lighter. $690 vs $2,899. I'd choose the enves for bling factor and if i had 10 million dollars + in my bank account.

    They look like any of the many other cheap carbon offerings coming direct from China.

    Coincidentally, I just ordered a set of carbon clinchers; should arrive next week. Total cost, with shipping to US, was $463.87. I chose the cheapest options (Novatech basic hubs, black spokes and hubs, matte finish.) 50mm depth, no obnoxious stickers, 1450 grams; if they last me a few thousand miles with no problems, I'll consider them "the next big thing," for me.

    Can't say I've watched a lot of yodeling in my day, but damn that guy is talented haha.




    As for the wheels. Just got mine and love them. Got them from flyxii on Amazon.com. Only have a couple hundred miles on them however so I can't give you a review. Preferred to paint my own though, rather than have them branded with a chinese manufacture name.

    Thanks buddy. Yes it is, though I don't recommend it. I do however recommend the SMP Lite. The shape is great, this thing just has too much padding. I bought it before I really knew anything about cycling and because I was still dealing with newbie butt pains. haha.

    They have a consistent spoke bed depth and good finishing on the outside of the bead (really helpful for getting them round). Can't say that about every Chinese carbon wheel I've ever built.

    I have a couple thousand miles on a set of their 50mm / 23mm wide wheels with 28/24 spoking. They are my build (DT Champ spokes, PowerTap hubs). I tensioned them to 130 kgf (Zipp's max is 100) and they have been bombproof and stiff. I haven't had to touch them. I have no experience with their hubs or the quality of their full build.

    Good info. Their hubs are confusing

    guy looks like he's having so much fun yodeling, i wouldn't be surprised it you met him on a street corner you could get him to do it for free... almost freakishly good!

    and i like the frame. too bad they don't make it with track forks in back for us singlespeeders.

    edit: i'm now in the process of buying a couple of their 20mm tubular rims. and BTW, i find their youtube saleswoman awfully cute. i don't know exactly why... maybe it's those coke bottle glasses and that cheery "hi guys" intro.

    I have a 2012 Fuji SST 3.0. the front hub of the wheelset(oval brand) that came with the bike cracked last week. I've been watching yoeleobike's site recently. their wheelsets look amazing and cheap. im looking forward to getting their carbon wheelset with alloy brake track and rimbed. the reason for going alloy braketracks is for a quick wheelset change from time to time and don't bother changing brake pads. anybody got the carbon-alloy wheelsets here from yoeleo?

    finally ordered one last week. they provided me with a tracking number last monday on a chinese EMS courier. hoping i'll get it by friday. i ordered the wheelset from farsports. it's a 60mm U shaped rim with 23mm width rim bed. aluminum brake tracks too. so, i'm hoping these will last long. not really light though because of the aluminum part but im planning to use them as my daily wheels.
