rims: ztr 340 alpha: +- 350 gram each
front hub: M5 straight pull 24: 40gram
rear hub: M5 straight pull 28: 190 gram
spokes: sapim cx-ray: +- 190 gram
nipples: alu: +-10 gram
weight should be around 1195 gram

The SP hubset will weigh 292g, and the J-B will weigh 277g, but thats such a small difference that it doesn't really matter.
I think I'm going to be using CX-rays. I weigh around 68 kg/149lbs and they will be racing wheels.

The front hub will be dt swiss 240 straight pull with cx-rays. I am looking at a 20/24 build. I am a big guy so I don't imagine more side force from the wind will be that big of a deal percentage wise. My current front wheel is 1400 grams with tire. I will be moving to the dark side and using tubulars. I am hoping to shave some weight off my total setup.-David
your current clincher wheelset is 1400 gr with tire include??!!
if this is right i don't know how you can go lower than that even with tubular wheel, need sub 1000gr(with 50 to 88mm this is hard) wheelset and sub 400gr tire+glue
Assume ~1800g for the rear? Therefore plenty of weight to be shed!
