The total wheelset weight with tires and glue came out to be 2007 grams.  With the tires at an estimated 250 grams each, that brings the wheelset to being 1500 grams… Quite HEAVY for a tubular wheelset and most of it is from the rear wheel too because the rim i just built is silly heavy.  It was a great opportunity to dip my hands into building wheels though, and now I get to see what it’ll take to run tubulars regularly.
