checked the WW listings (but they don't give claimed or actual), also did a search and found nothing here but also asked an ebay seller who had it come in at 190 in a 42, but on a non-digital scale, which is probably not very accurate. Since zipp claimed 170, I was wondering if anyone here had an actual weight.

This is what concerns me. I think I'll have to look into other options.

Since I started the thread I guess I should chime in. I ended up picking up a NOS 40 cm non-SS bar and it came in at 156 or 158g. Other than having to drop to a shorter stem (only 10 mm), I've been quite happy.
