    Weight of Hadleys with ZTR 355?

    I have done a search and can't seem to locate the weight of such a build. I am looking to build a more cross country oriented wheel set with light AM duties as well, hence going with the 355 instead of the crest. Any thoughts on the build are appreciated. Looking at Hadley's due to trying to keep the cost down as compared to Kings or DT's. I have pretty much ruled out Hope due to the noise issue - I don't think that is something I personally care for. Thanks.

    I'd be more inclined to run some DT Swiss 240S hubs with some Stan's Arches, if your ride weight is under 200 pounds, Flows if more than 200.

    I was running Crests and wasn't confident in their ability to handle abuse so I switched them out for Arches and I honestly can't tell the difference in speed/acceleration/momentum. To me it was a wash. The only difference I could feel is the Arches are a bit stiffer when turning through the rough stuff. They hold an aggressive line better. Since you brought up the term "AM" in your post, I would AT LEAST go with Arches You don't want any insecurities running through your head while riding. They'll weigh just under half a pound more on the the scale but you honestly won't be able to quantify the difference while riding and they'll be much more durable/stronger than 355s.
