That's kind of a broad question..This is weightweenies, I've seen tons of wheels I'd consider crazy light. That said, I'm assuming you're talking about Ole's sub 1000g wheels?

Someone else, who works/owns (not sure) a bike shop from a European country (I forgot which, sorry), made a sub 900-gram wheelset with Tune Princess Skyline, Dezibel rear hub, Ti spokes and Innolite rims, but I can't find it right now. I remember the color combination of the hubs were not of my taste.

Not Spain, Norway!

Wheels have been rebuilt with Crest rims, and rear hub upgraded to HyperRear. 1117g and super stiff.
