So your wheelset in a comparative sense will be even lighter.


How much do your QR's weigh for front & rear, respectively?

I weighted with and without QR - somehow both wheels got 2 g more this time.

No QR rear 848 g, front 682 g
With QR rear 910 g, front 740 g

After looking the reviews and details of the hubs decided to go with the 12's.
The front hub on 13 has the left right spokes closer than 12's. Also, overall, I like more the style of the 12.
Got from eBay - it has only black pair, but asking then, they said can get a pair of gray anodized
