Lush (not a word I use often), that's a fantastic weight for a rear wheel, top work! 8) It's not too bad for a front even! :lol:

What are you doing for cassette?
For QR, consider Control Tech allen skewers, really light.

After reading this, I've decided to go WW on my upcoming project as well.

Both of my Mavic 230 TIB rims came in at 358g

My Mavic X517s with REVS, DT alloy nips and Hope Ti hubs. Front weighs exactly 700g. Guess your 230s with White industry hub may weigh slightly less! Can't weight (excuse the pun) to see the result.

Tough one. I didn't want to use any Shimano, but it'll probably be a 737 at about 250g. Just can't afford goldtec or SRP/Tioga (yet...)

X lite, cos I had them lying around, and it's only around 10g difference


Shaun, the front hub should save around 150g compared to the rear, and the rim should be here very soon :D

I'm also weighting for one of those rims with a blue Hope small hub & blue nips

Wow! You are looking at about only 656g for the front wheel then, THATS AWESOME. :shock: This is going to be a good thread...I'm in to the final build. :D

Er, So I can't count! :oops:

So the front wheel should be around 135 grams less... but it depends on the rim weight too - it's another 230TIB, sat in the depot, waiting to be picked up tomorrow! :D :D :D Should still be a sub 680g wheel. It could have gone lighter if I could have found a non-suspension WI hub.

I'm a little shocked how much I've ended up spending on the wheels - by FAR the most expensive part of the whole build.

And an early 737 cassette courtesy of konaben82 (cheers Buddy!)

Seems a shame to put this on as it was almost a shimano free build, but I can't justify spending on a proper retro, lightweight, non-Big S cassette (if I could even find one!)

:roll:

I had a nice set of Whites on Mavic 180's and they were pretty light at around 1460g, but I have a nice set of Sun O-lite "race only" on Dt 240 r hubs and they are 1309g the pair, which is lighter than Gen 1 Crossmax Sl's.
