Divvie, I always build with the trailing spokes bend out. I like my load carring items to be spaced as widly as possible. Works for me (2-5pr wheels/week).

Hey guys...a friend of mine just ordered exactly the same wheelset.
I have heard about Hügi hubs to have a really good sound...what about the tune?

Here is a picture of the wheelset..the bike is ugly though :D

This set is stiff, solid and damn good locking.

Rims: Dt Swiss RR 1.1 <<<830 gr (2 pcs)
hubs: Tune Mig 66r/200 <<292 gr
nipples: Dt prolock <<<<< 18 gr (56 pcs)
spokes: DT aerolite<<<<<244 gr (56pcs)
___________________________________

~ 1384gr



Why the Dt Swiss RR 1.1??

Is it stiffer than de mavic open pro? Or other rims?

With the open pro it would be 1404gram for the wheelset.

With the mavic CXP 33 it would be 1494gram. Yeah to heavy but they are stiff just like the ksyrium SL


I have a pair of tune 66/170, open pro, aerolite 28/28, alu nipples. Front radial, rear 2-crossed. It weights exaxtly 1440 Gramm. That means, in your calculating there has to be a mistake! And in my opinion that is the weight of the spokes. Take 5 Gramms for the pair aerolite/alunipple and you will get a real result. I don't think that the RR1,1 will reach the claimed 415 Gramm - my open pro are 445 - its always the same... :(

Yu are right about the spokes...yu can add ~50 gr. But about the rims..they got the claimed weight. There is no faking there.
The wheels are extremely stiff and lighter than the Ksyriums. Especially rear wheel.

Sweet set of wheels. But why did you (want to) sell your Cosmic Carbones as you raved about them before you got the new ones?
