    Heavy wh-m775 ? (real wheelset weights)

    usually Shimano gives accurate claimed weights
    that's why i am surprised

    Just got a pair of WH-m775 (XT-08 xc wheelset)
    Claimed 755g and 922g
    Real is 760g(ok) and 960g(NOT OK!)

    what's the weight of your XTR / XT wheelsets please? (models 775,770,975,970)
    just bad luck for me or ..?

    thanks

    what's a joke? that the weight is wrong or that it bothers me?
    FR wheel is acceptable (though i'd prefer lighter)
    RR wheel overwheight is not acceptable IMHO

    On the official web page:

    Average Weight: 922

    "Weight does not include quick release or valve stem"

    Just install that great wheelset and go ride

    It's 38 grams! I don't know anyone that would go on a rant about 38 grams so I thought it was a joke. If it bothers you then you should return them.

    You'll get more dirt in one ride than that 38gm.
