Damn damn damn.... those would put me almost in the 9lb range

Sweet looking wheels, but how will they hold up to normal riding ?

20/24. I'm the new owner. They are intended for hilly New England road races and uphill time trials such as Mt. Washington and Whiteface. I'll report back on how they perform when the local road conditions finally improve.

138lbs. I have a decent sprint despite the light weight. I'll report back on any brake rubbing.

John, while they aren't an ideal daily rider they should hold up just fine. This pair really does set a fine example of what can be done. Just think, a similar set with Aerolite spokes is still sub 775grams but should be a bit stiffer as a daily rider. Or if you were really after durability you add to that the ELF front hub and an SR rear and you're still only at 825grams or so.
