Silly question - how much do spokes weight?(6 posts)

Silly question - how much do spokes weight?Iwannapodiumgirl

Curious to calculate the weight of a handbuilt wheelset, yet unsure of the weight of the "average" spoke. Not too much of a weight weenie, so a ball park will do.

Looked at some manufacturer sites, but can not seem to find this detail - perhaps I do not know what I am looking for.

Cheers
