was going to pick up the rims tomorrow, they are to be powder coated satin finish white - but the job was pushed back & will have to wait a few more days before dropping everything off with Rich Sawiris our fave SoCal wheelbuilder

weights
Sapim SuperSpokes - 237.6g total
Sapim Poyax nips - 23.2g total
tuned DT Swiss 240s 32h 6-bolt - 233.4.g
Tune Princess 32h 6-bolt - 104.6g
Podium MMX 32h x2 - 581g (perhaps 30g more after powder coating white?)

total wheelset weight: 1180g ? ...or more likely somewhere near 1230g?

i should be getting my mack front hub here soon at 81g :)
you should get on the wait list for the front one in orange!

what bike is this going on? yours are always black now polished and white?!
the Podium wheelset is for mrs culturesponge's white & reflexite Vertex 70

rims were going to be buff raw alloy but she'd rather them semi matte white instead so there you go

81g hubs sound too flexy for racing ...well at least for me @ 74kg ;)

will update with new white Podium MMX rim pics on scales soon

the weight limit is 70kg.. im just around 61kg though.. so plenty stiff for me!

thats going to be one awesome wheelset though. incredibly light!
thanks,

i'm suprised you can break things being so light ;)

possibly ... for a clincher wheelset at least - my XRC 300 wheelset came in at 1199g, really wanted to beat that - but will be happy to finally get those rims laced up and on a bike

but it really depends now on the powder coating - we chose the best in the area - Embee in Santa Ana - but it could very easily undo all the hours i spent supertuning that DT 240 hub

want to see a wheelbuild thread with your trick mack wheelset :thumbsup:

well the front should be in transit on Monday and i have the rims here.

the rear i may opt for the light version at 220g instead of the 199g superlight for a 40 euro difference but i think i should just go all the way and get the lighter. the only difference is hybrid bearings and a lighter freehub.

so the math 655g rims 281g hubs roughly 280g spokes(if i go heavy) and 30g nipples adds up to 1246 but could be sub 1200 with ti spokes.

mathmatics can be very cruel - i'd recc to go as light as possible :thumbsup:

what rims?

Ti's a great choice for spokes - expensive though

...start a thread! :)

Sponge, why not the matching Prince rear hub @ 190 grams now that Tune has the reliability issues sorted out.
thanks

great idea & the matching new 92g Princess Skyline is a work of art too - but - wheelsets for the wife & she'd purchased those Podium rims ect back in Dec '09 from dulite.fr - its taken eons to get this far :madman:

"perfect" weight weenie 29er wheelset could be
front hub. 78g Tune HyperFront : http://www.extralite.com/index_euro.htm
rear hub. 150g Tune Prince Dezible: http://www.tune.de/index.php?option...dezibel&catid=1:disc-naben&Itemid=143&lang=en
rims. 255g AX Lightness SRT CC 29er: http://www.ax-lightness.de/xist4c/web/AX---tubular-rim-SRT-CC-29er_id_21273__dId_5610_.htm
spokes. Tune Super Spokes: http://www.tune.de/index.php?option...erspoke&catid=127:speichen&Itemid=219&lang=en
tires. Racing Ralph HT 29x2.00: http://www.schwalbe.com/gbl/en/prod...reich=5&tn_mainPoint=Produkte&tn_subPoint=MTB

just need to win the national lottery & 29 RR HT become available - c'mon Schwalbe

...edit to tweak "perfect" wheelset...

Is there any article somewhere about this change in Tune rear hubs? What have they done to fix the problems?
Don't know the details on what they changed. But I haven't heard of one issue with new version.If you go to fairwheelbikes.com they still have both new and older versions for sale, they could probably answer your question.

culturesponge you can polish the rims like eliflap done this few months ago. for 2 rims he saved 27 grams.
+100 ;)

it would be really boss - especially with matching silver hubs & was all set to do just that ...but the rims/wheelset is not mine & madame culturesponge insists upon semi matte white rims to colour co-ordinate with her Vertex frameset :(

it only cost $40 to get both rims powdercoated but its taking abit longer than was told...
