Can anyone help me. I have a set of mavic 717 laced up to lx 585 hubs. I need to find out there weight. I am unable to get them weighed but I have a good deal lined up for another set of wheels (they weigh 1820g) and just want to know the difference in weight before I snag them up.
From what I information I can get from google
the rims weigh 420 grams each
front hub 201
rear hub 396
I just dont know what the spokes would weight

Use 185-200 grams per wheel for spokes, that range should be pretty close for comparison purposes.

According to Universal Cycles
brass nipples 34g for 32
alloy nipples 14g for 32
14ga spokes 213g for 32
14/15ga spokes 185g for 32

weights may vary based on lengths but it gets you in the ballpark
