How much does your Deep V wheel set weight? With tubes and tires?
Hello again folks I was wondering if there is any lightweight wheelsets out there for under $150.00. I purchased some "tec9" deep V's 43mm back in 2009. They are monsters @ 10lbs
thats over 5 lbs per wheel with tube and tire. That on my Alum road frame 7lbs
means a 23+lb fixie. My girlfriend just got a set of Eighth-inch "Amelias" They hit the scales around 8.5 lbs with tubes and tires. Granted these wheels will probably never need truing anytime soon, is there a compromise out there? How much does a B43 wheel set weigh with tubes and tires? I know they are about 2x's the price are they half the weight? What is heavy for a Deep V wheel set? Anyone have Velutas Deep V's? I was just going to get some box type wheels because they are lighter, can I get some that are just as strong? Any suggestions? I have seen some deals on Ebay and CL what should I jump on? Other than components I think this is the best way to lighten up a bike.
