    Guess that rim weight! (Weinnman Deep V's)

    We weighed out some Weinnman DP-18's on the hanger scale today at the LBS. Anyone want to take a stab at how much they weigh powdercoated, and how much as bare silver?

    Hint: Velocity Deep V's weigh around the 540g area.

    Answer: painted colors - 710g (hmm, heaviest clincher EVER?)
    Bare silver - 640g.
    Mavic Open Pro - 420g.

    What was your elevation at the time of weighing the rim?

    Yeah... if you want to build a wheel as heavy as an Arrospok (tm) without the Arrospok look (tm)!

    still lighter and stiffer than an A-spoke set. I hate to say it, but I'm glad I sold them now that I have "real" wheels

    I tried to look for this info on the interweb and couldn't find out. I could feel the weight but wanted a numerical value to compare to others. F'n crazy.

    My stem is **** ton heavy as well. The whole front end of my bike weighs more than the frame and back end.

    They're heavy? NO! Then how come every rider on the TDF is sporting those wheels???

    Ok enough sarcasm, yes they're heavy but they're not wheels for racing but rather marketed to a new type of cycling that the majority of people who take part in will buy parts for aesthetics rather than function.

    still probably worth it to save up a few extra more bucks to get regular old velocity deep v's.

    Or not.

    I don't know where you get the idea that they are comparably priced, as you imply that they are here and outright said so in the last thread about the Weinys. Complete Deep V sets with Formulas retail for $275, whereas DP-18s with Formulas average out at $150. To me, an extra $125 is not worth the whopping ~200g in weight savings.
