Spin The Wheel

My current wheelset, Bontrager rims - DT Swiss Champion spokes - Formula hubs, weight 2155 grams. It is too heavy for cross-country riding and trail riding at Bukit Kiara. Nevertheless, it is a tough wheelset that can take the abuse.

Since riding at Bukit Kiara involved a lot of climbing, including technical climbing, I think it is time to lighten the wheelset.

My choice components are:

> ZTR Olympic rims, 32 holes
> DT Swiss double-butted spokes
> WTB Laserdisc Lite hubs

At the LBS, I weight the wheelset:
> 682 grams in front
> 808 grams at the back
> Total of 1490 grams

I think that is lighter than the Mavic SLR wheelset!
