    This should have claimed weight and actual weight columns.

    very interesting - that is a full 8oz EACH lighter than claimed 1294g
    Weinmann Metal Products Co., LTD

    Just to double check - you have the 26" x80mm version, not the 24" x80mm version? The 24" claims a much closer number to your figure of 1040g.

    I really wish that dhl80 was from a more-Quality less-UltraBudget focused manufacturer; I need a nuke-proof rear wheel and would gladly pay 8oz penalty if i felt confident it was great quality, not just a cheaper-metal, cheaper-tolerance extrusion.

    If you don't mind me asking... will you be riding the Xiphias' mostly in winter - or in the other seasons as well? I wonder how well they'd hold up for year-round riding. Do they seem pretty stout to you?

    The 1040 has big holes drilled in it. The 1294 does not.

    You drilled those custom, correct ? (Have not seen any factory with cuttouts.

    What is your impression of the rims? How much do you stress them / system weight / what type of riding? I'm considering them for a very heavy MTB cargo bike, concerned whether the weight would give much more strength.

    better clear if its double wall or single wall, of course double wall rim is heavier. but stronger.

    Not necessarily, if the double walls are each half as thick as the single wall they will weigh the same. Well maybe wall thickness needs to be a bit less to make up for internal stiffining.

    If the walls in the double wall are made too thin they may not be as strong as a well engineered single wall. Likely why they are typically heavier.

    I missed that you said "factory cutouts" (thanks sryanak) ... any chance you have a link? I haven't found any for sale (or spec)

    I ride year long.
    I have them for a month or so , but made a couple of tough ride and they hold up well. So far so good.
