I'm working on a wheel build, and wondering if anyone can tell me the weight of the
X-ray spokes in a 20/24 spoke build w/ 24mm carbon rims?

Use some online calculator and check the listing. Thats what i did and i found a weight for a length pretty close to what i was going to use.

With an alloy nip, you will be looking at about 4.8 grams per spoke. A 20/24 setup usually comes out to about 211 grams or so.
