    '13 f29 carbon 3 wheelset weight?

    Hello all. I've searched and searched and I'm trying to decide if it will be worth Frankensteining my stock wheelset with my arch ex.

    Stock wheelset is listed as RIMS

    WTB FREQUENCY RACE I19, TCS, 32-HOLE
    HUBS
    FORMULA LEFTY SL FRONT, SHIMANO FH-M525, REAR

    Anyone know the potential weight savings? It's going to be quite a process as the front wheel will be a lefty to non lefty and the rear wheel will be swapping hub parts and going from ss to geared. Haha just typing this makes me feel like it's not worth it

    Depends on the hub you have on the Arch. If they have the Stans hubs then very little weight savings.
