    Stan's ZTR Olympic 347 vs 360 - how do I know?

    Just picked my ZTR Olympic wheelset from the my LBS, but I am wondering how do I know if they are the Olympic 347 (which I asked for) or the heavier ones?

    The stickers on the rim (the newest generation of stickers they are making) just say "ZTR Olympic".

    There is no unique code anywhere on the rim. There is yellow tape on there however, and I didn't really want to go ripping it off.

    Any suggestions? I may just call the company in the next couple days.

    what hubs and spokes do you have?

    If you weigh the wheelset (without the rim tape) you get the final build weight.

    Final build weight - weight of spokes - weight of nipples - weight of hub = rim weight

    weights for the spokes, hubs, nipples etc... can all be found either

    Thank you Cheers! - I thought of that, but I don't know if i trust weights enough to do it that way.

    I got the DT 240s with DT Revo spokes and yellow spoke tape+valve. The Stan's wheel weight calculator will have everything down to the gram, but I don't have access to a scale that will be accurate enough.

    Yes, this is a travesty for someone who frequents the weight weenie forum and is attempting to build a light bike, but I am just too cheap, I guess, when I'd rather spend the $ on bike parts.

    go down to the post office and ask the clerk nicely if you could find out the weight of your two wheels.
