When I was finding/building my Weenie Wheels, I had to take into account actual availability.

WI are VERY light, only a few are lighter (hope are marginally heavier). I think Nukeproof were slightly lighter, but that was about it.

Rims, the only ones I found were really Ateks, or 230s. Couldn't find any Ateks...

Spokes: Revolutions save a LOT of weight, at a price.

Sapim Laser are cheaper than rev's that's that problem solved. I built a set of mavic X517's on Middleburn hubs and they weighed in at 1660g I think. I did them for a retro biker.
