Has Praxis changed design or increased weight of their cloverleaf rings
They are listed as 119g on Fairwheel bikes website, yet mine weigh 152g
Scales are pretty accurate as I've recently weighed DA 9000 parts and my EE brakes and they are within a gram or two of listed weight.
Anyone else got weights of Praxis rings to compare?

DJconnel has a pair for cyclocross that came in way overweight. They were 48/something I think so I thought that might have been due to the non-standard size.

Crushed.... I was tempted to drill them down but the design of the rings is so complex it is difficult to decide where to remove material.

Purchased from Roll in San Francisco, now closed:

46T ring: 104.0 grams
36T ring: 35.4 grams
total: 139.4 grams

I really like the tighter combo relative to a 34-50.

I have a pair of 53/39 that are 98g/30g. I wouldn't have minded a heavier set, mine have never really shifted that well. I took them off and put the stock rings back on.

Yes, rings are still in pretty good shape.

I didn't bother weighing mine @ 52/26 as I was coming off a set of old stronglight CT2 rings.. All I can say I that shifting has been a massive improvement

I just weighed a set of 110BCD 50/30T rings in at 132g. 30g for the 30T and 102g for the 50T.

I don't have clover leaf 130s on hand, only classics, they come in at 146g for the pair. 32g for the 39 and 114g for the 53.

R2-Bike now lists them at 154g:

http://r2-bike.com/PRAXIS-WORKS-Kettenb ... 30-53-39_1

Looks like I'm going to have to find an alternative ring set. NOS Force may be an option. Hated the Stronglight CT2's. Anything else? TA or Tune?
