Zipp 202 Firecrest Clinchers 77/177 hubs[/img]
Did your new wheelset come in at 1450g as advertised? Thanks and congrats
First of all I bought them 2nd hand to complete my Zipp collection : 404 Firecrest tubular and 404 Firecrest clinchers with the same hubs I also have here. They do add a lot of comfort in comparison with the Zipp 404 clinchers ( same tires Schwalbe one 25mm and innertubes by Michelin ) And about the weight : yes and no :

Zipp 202 Clincher with rimtape 1485 gram
Zipp 404 Clincher with rimtape 1720 gram
Zipp 404 Tubular 1525 gram

Just ordered a new helmet for the cool and windy autumn rides. Actually, the helmet would be perfect in our current spring weather too.

Its the customs that require triplicates of the bill/shipping. Not Wiggles fault.

Just bought a new, sold stock (NOS) 2016/2017 Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL C (clincher, rim brake, pre-UST) wheelset. Factory stated weight was 1450g/set, but they came in at 1565g/set or >5% over. Oink, oink. (I'm led to believe that I might save ~45g w/Veloplugs if I remove the factory rim tape that looks permanent but isn't. :smartass: viewtopic.php?f=113&t=138630&start=60)

Factory Mavic skewers are unimpressive 118g/set, but I wasn't expecting much.

On the other hand, two new Pirelli Velo 4S 23c clincher tires weighed in at an impressive 202-204g/ea. (I'm a Schwalbe Ultremo / ZX / Evo / One homer through and through, so these are destined to make someone else happy.)
