    Bronson wheel weight

    Anyone know the weight of the stock 350/i23 wheelset for the Bronson?

    Heavy... :-) I haven't weighed mine but I can tell you they are weighty. I think I calculated that I could drop a pound easily by switching to a pair I'd Arches. Though the i2 are actually tubeless runs so there's something to be said for that.

    892g front, 978g rear = 1870g total. I bought a set (one man's junk is another man's treasure) and think it's a GREAT wheelset with a pretty good weight for the size and what they can handle. Butted spokes and 350's which are bombproof and easiest of all to service. Personally I think SC did a great job with picking these for their builds.

    Have FUN!

    Seriously, I think it's a great wheelset for what the Bronson is- a beefy 6" bike that is meant to ride hard. I would've been pissed if it came with some flexy 1500g wheels that I destroyed in 2 weeks.
