I'd like to post some pics. of a wheel I just finished building for a hill-climb bike. The hub weighs 44.2 grams. The wheel has 24 ti spokes and the rim weighs 225 grams with some major mods happening there. The rim was 32 hole but is now 24 and has 7075 machined and formed grommets epoxied into the rim. The hub with the skewer tightened has almost no resistance. With a flick of your index finger you can get the skewer wizzing around(using spacers to simulate the fork blades).
