    Weighed Schwalbe source ??

    Im looking to get some Schwalbe Tyres - a furious Fred and Rocket ron

    I want to get light ones though as they can vary in weight by 80grams at times!

    So does anyone know a source where i could get some but have the weight checked first ?

    No but...

    I have used many many Furious Fred 2.25"s (with RaceGuard) and they have been about 434 +-3grams. I have also used several Ron 2.25"s and I can't remember what the average is now (454 maybe) but they were all within +-10 grams.

    While I have personally seen high variations in Schwalbe tire weights, particularly with the old Ralph model (+-35 grams or more), they seem to have reigned it in significantly with the Furious Fred, Ron, and new Ralphs. Or maybe I am just getting lucky over and over and over.

    I've asked online shops if they could weigh things and most say no which understandable.

    Schwalbe STILL have HUGE differences...

    just have a look at some Rocket Ron 2,1" that this guy got:

    that's 50g difference / 13%

    and i'm sure if you could weigh more tires you could find lighter AND heavier ones still. As i always said with Schwalbe you should weigh your tires before you buy or you may end up with a ton on your rims
