Hi
I recently bought a Titanium frame decked our wit Extralite parts. The wheelset was as mentioned in the title. Can't find any info online though. Weight, including tyres (conti gatorskins 23mm) and cassette (old Ultegra 9spd) is 2.6kg.
Does anyone have any info on this wheelset? ImageImageImageImage

It's quite an old wheelset with an alloy rim that's narrow and shallow. It's not even that light by modern standards.

You could drop 180g and improve the ride and your pace by fitting Vitoria Corsa or conti go4000s tyres.

I have some GP4000's on my other wheelset which has served me well. Think I can 25s on the extralite wheelset or will it be too narrow?

Or any of the Veloflex tyres would be nice...
