Rolf Vector Pro Rim Weight?(5 posts)

Rolf Vector Pro Rim Weight?MCJ
Oct 8, 2002 11:11 AM
Based on my actual weight of my Vector Pro's (F: 812g and R: 1025g) I have estimated the parts contribution as follows:

Rims: 500g
Hubs: F 180g, R 375g
Spokes: F 118g, R 135g
Nipples: F 14g, R 16g

I'm looking at the 303's and trying to justify the decreased rotating weight. These estimates seem about right?

The Vector Pros are supposed to weigh 750g for the front and 930g for the rear. I'm sure this does not include rim tape or skewers.

The above mentioned weights are for rim, spokes, nipples, and hubs.
