Also it's weight at ~430grams means the wheelset can be quite light too coming down to spoke and hub selection.
Looking at hubs to go with these
Just got these weights from the JensonUSA site, the price/performance of the 6600 hubs are fine for my usage.
What is the average you'd guesstimate 32 spokes would weigh in at? not sure of which ones at this stage, hence the guesstimate for curiousities sake.
learning lots, thanks guys.
