Tubies are light, but clinchers a pig...Spunout

I guess they have to add material to get the beads of clinchers to hang on.

That is one thing good about tubulars: The rims are lighter because they don't need as much material.

But the rims themselves, are they lighter? Are the hubs the heaviest part of this unit?
Don't know.look271

Didn't see specific weights as far as parts of the wheelset. I'll stay w/ my K's, although I could really go for that crankset!
is it possible to build an all French bike?trekkie1

... at least French manufacturer parts and frame? Look, is seems, would be the primary maker of the frame, fork, now wheels, and some components.

For that matter, is it possible to build a bike with all parts from any particular country? Japan and Italy should come close.

Just curious.

I managed to build my Lemond Zurich without a Japanese component, that was tough!
You could almost.look271

Mavic doesn't make their Mektronic shifters anymore but you can still find them-I have them on mine. Don't think you could find a French BB, though, or front derailer.(Wanna buy my Mektronics?=) )
