    +1! Thanks for putting it together meltingfeather.

    I thought of snipping all the little remnants off the RaRa to see if I could even come close to 605 but decided eating slightly less pizza and drinking a few drops less beer would be a more efficient means of achieving the same net result.

    Sure that's a 2012 model? I just got 2 and they are at appx 550g-560g, advertised weight is 535g on the package. My 2011 models were at around 640g though.

    2012 Racing Ralph 29 x 2.25 TLR Evo Pacestar (HS425) 532 grams (535 claimed).
    Took several days before the pin holes and the joints in the sidewalls sealed up. Had to use a bit of extra sealant so I guess that negated the low weight.

    2012 Rocket Ron 29 x 2.25 TLR Evo Pacestar (HS406) 541 grams (520 claimed).
    Sealed right up with no issues.

    Wierd, Ron weighs more than Ralph?
