hello fellas i want to build a light weight clincher wheelset for fast paced group rides and a climbing too i weight 130 to 135 pounds.

here is my only option:
Rims: kinlin xr-200 :770 grams
hubs: ultra light hubs 257 grams sold by bikehubstore
spokes: sapim cx ray spokes black and nipples 228 grams.
total grams is 1255 grams .

current wheelset: Shimano rs10 HEAVY THINGS ! :oops:

Are there any other options in order to lighten things up a bit...???? :noidea: please share your opinions. i am mostly looking to built a wheelset that is 1500 grams or a little more without braking the bank, durable, and most important of all stiff wheels too. :D :beerchug:

PLEASE use Search.

Look at the wheel building thread, archetype thread, and other wide rim threads. It is not hard to come up with solid 1500g wheelset scenarios.
