Fresh out of the box from the factory:

2004 American Classic Mountain 350 wheelset, non-disc, 28 hole front, 32 hole rear built with Sapim CX-Ray Spokes. Wheels weighed without skewers or tape as everyone uses different stuff. Weighed on a very accurate digital gram scale.

Front: 592
Rear: 718

total: 1310 grams. That pretty light for a 28/32 wheelset intended for mountain use. Turn around time from order to delivery was pretty short. Good Service from American Classic IMHO.

Bonus weight:

2004 Manitou Black Super SPV 80mm uncut, 1654 grams not as light as hoped, but I get to play with SPV and it won't flex like crazy on me (I weigh 180).

thanks for the weight post...man, your rear wheel barely weighs more than my front (32 hole AC/Valiant/Wheelsmith(14/15)/alloy nips = 714g). interested in how they ride. don't forget to use 3M packing tape as rim tape to save more g's.
