I'm going to say 1588g.

Here's why - I had an identical set of wheels with Hugi 240 hubs. Actual weight with Velox rim tape was 1554g. I figure the record hubs are 34g more than the Hugi hubs (based on actual weight of Hugi 240 and 2000 Record hubs - no skewers). If Campy reduced the weight of the Record hubs after 2000, adjust accordingly.

Go to your local Wal-Mart, and on the office supplies aisle, they have little digital postage scales for $20 or so. Pick one up, and weigh your own stuff.

Honestly, I don't think that weight should be your primary concern in choosing bicycle components (I'm riding my 21lb steel bike in tonight's fast ride). But if you spend extra to buy component A over B for a supposed weight savings, it is nice to know what you actually saved. Once you have the scale, you'll be suprised how far off advertised weights can be (sometimes in your favor). -Dave

with a cheap fish scale 10 bucks.
By the way Titanium bike built up just 17.25 lbs!
Not bad considering that I did not build it up to be light but comfortable!
