Lighter than you expected? I build a 96 Kona with it too. And i think it was way heavy... Do you know how much more it is than a normal.shimano hub and rear mesh? I expect around 500gr more. But don't really know.
And fun project BTW.

I'll do some weighing and find out but was pleasantly surprised! I knew it would be a bit heavier but no mechs to mess about with is well worth it. What ratio did you run? I'm thinking 32/18
