My wheelset has arrived and it is a whopping 1600g as opposed to the promised 1475g. Without rim tape, axles or anything.
Mailed them to come up with a solution. Not pleased. At all.
It was delivered with quick releases and carbon pads as well. And without through axles.
(On a positive note, XDB delivered without issue and I did not have to pay any customs charges)
Eeek. How many spokes is the wheelset? Napkin match gives ~1500 grams for a 24/24 spoke wheelset (475+475 (rims) +320 (hubset)+(4.5*48) (spokes)+15 (nipples)). However a 32/32 spoke wheelset would come out to about 1580 grams.
24/24. So I don't know where the extra weight comes from (the rims are actually 460g, if I recall correctly). I've mailed CarbonBikeKits (haven't heard back) as well as Workswell (to state again that I want pictures and actual weight before shipping, haven't heard back either). Chinese imports are honestly quite the hassle. That's what you have to deal with when you want carbon wheels/hydraulic disc/di2 on my budget I suppose.

Hollandbikeshop sells Wheels Mfg BB86 bottom brackets. From the looks of it a little less expensive than the 100 euros you mentioned.
Thanks! I'm sort of waiting for a bargain crankset, which can either be Sram or FSA, so I can't order the BB yet.
