    At least they were inline. Nextie used to do offset rim's with spokes offset and then the holes on the other side centerline. Took quite a bit of explaining for them to change it.

    The Carbon Fan rims I got were also offset. The holes in the rim bed were appropriately offset too, just not staggered to reflect the nipple hole angles, as they would be if drilled in a single operation with the nipple holes, which, I believe, is the typical method. I figured they drilled the rim bed holes first and then followed up doing the angled nipple hole and seats.
    Do the math.

    Total cost with that coupon works out the same as Yishun, EIE, and a number of other makes.

    You're looking at the premium series which has a 3.5 year warranty vs 1 year for EIE.

    The BTLOS rims are great. I've been absolutely flogging my 36mm Premium rims, jumps, large drops, rocks and roots, and they haven't wavered. I've also laced a set for a guy who rides fast/hard on a small travel bike, and is 270lbs with gear. He has so far managed to absoluely destroy a dt350 rear hub, but the wheels were still perfectly true. Relaxed the wheel for him, good to go. He has had them since February.

    Lily at BTLOS is pretty great to deal with, they provide excellent support. Which is why I use them when people want more affordable carbon wheel builds.
