Search fail, Cannondale wheelset weight

I Googled and searched but couldn't find an answer to what would seem like an otherwise simple question. Anyone have an idea what a stock 2011 Cannondale Tandem 2 wheelset weighs (White Industries M16 40h hubs and Sun ME14A)?

You came to the right place.

From my 2012:
front wheel w/ rim tape (I think), no tire/tube or axel = 1,072g
rear wheel (same as above) = 1,244g

I weighed when I swapped them out for Spinergy's.

Thanks Pic. I read somewhere that the Spinergy tandem wheels are around 1,650 grams. Not sure if that is for disc hubs or just what. You happen to weigh (or know) your Spinergy wheels?

Of course!

All things being equal as above:
front = 750g
rear = 910g

A savings of 656g for the wheel set.

All those numbers are without the brake discs on both sets.
