Ok folks, changed one more part.

Changed the trek expander bung for the canondale one I bought a few weeks back

Brings the weight to 6.60kg exactly, real world weight

That Trek expander plug is a pig! Great job on the build.

Bit of a dumb question, but what diameter saddle clamp did you get?

my 23.5mm KP017 will not fit in 23mm inner diameter fork of Emonda ALR

So I ended up with a wheelset built up using DCR Raceday hubs, 24 cx Ray spokes both wheels,front built with ryde pulse sprint rim , rear built with DCR own rim.

Total weight inc rim strips but without skewers = 1380g

They are a nice light but sturdy wheelset and a true as true could be, and suitable for my weight which can be 76kg in winter, and 72kg in summer

So my emonda ALR now tips the scales at 6.62 kg real world weight

I've had 2 sets of wheels from DCR they've been fantastic and still going strong after two years. I was considering ryde pulse rims for my next lightweight wheelset but was concerned with changing tyres as they're described as a tight fit. What's your experience with fitting tyres to these rims?
