Time to get these wheels finished I reckon.

Tyres on, look alright I'd say.
Front says 1.1kg, rear 1.2 which is decent given the budget rim and straight spokes. Just cassette and skewers to add in to that.

Forgot to weigh the old wheels while I was truing these in the frame, put it all back together without thinking. I'll get them next time.

Nice man. I like the look of the novatech hubs - quite tempted to pick up a set and build some wheels myself.

Steerer on those carbon forks might be a tad long.

(honestly, I didn't even think about that)

Rear wheel with HG51 7sp cassette, 1.4kg. The xtr 9sp cassette I have in the spares box is fractionally lighter but not enough to loose sleep over (yet).

Standard wheels weigh in at 1.7 and 2.2 kg, so it's looking around 1.4kg saved on the wheels alone, from the 12kg starting point that's a nice ~10% drop already, good start in my book that.
