They are a touch under 1100 grams, I think. The hubs haven't been a problem at all. In fact I've never adjusted them. I am only 130lbs though, so take that for what it's worth. ; ) I also find that these wheels handle better in cross winds than any other carbon wheel I've ridden, even lower rim depth and heavier wheels. Not sure why that is, but I'll take it.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Don't know why, but it's always nice to have some affirmation that you put together something good!

Too sweet!
Saw these at the shop and the value is awesome.
Mind if I re-post on my blog?
