Here are my wheel specs:

Rims: Mavic CXP33
Hubs: Shimano Ultegra (Rr) Shimano 105 (Fr)
Spokes: DT 14/15 (Rr) DT 15/16 (Fr)
Nipples: Alloy
Qr: Q-Stix
3X cross front and rear
Total Weight: 1881

Compared to Mavic Ksyrium (1715g - $499) I built my wheels
for less than half the price of the ksyrium. So will 166g
provide any great advantage except an empty wallet?

... cycling... and the folks that frequent these types of boards, transcends all rationale and reason... that's the thrill of it!

Nice wheelset though!

We abide.

Remain In Light.
