    Not to hard to figure out (roughly)
    510g for rims x2
    350g for 64 Sapim race spokes (roughly)
    250g 150mm front hub
    350g 170mm rear hub
    about 1 gram per nipple for brass and .3 gram for alloy.
    This should get you close

    About 967g front with brass nips and 1067g rear give or take a few.
    Can lose about 75g with Sapim Laser spokes and roughly 40g with alloy nips.

    Here we go again,
    Everyone who had a scale the moment they built these up weighed them. No need to fool around. There are people here who know this .

    It is true though, sometimes people can take just a few minutes to figure things out. For one it's fun and another it's educational. In some customs it's even polite to thank someone who takes time out of ones day to figure it out for someone who is to lazy to do it themselves.

    Awww sh!t!

    Op, I am just giving you a hard time. But you really don't need a scale to figure any of this out....I am pretty sure they are all published and pretty easy to find on the interwebs.

    Oh lord, here we go again! I'm sure the OP assumes with so many people building up these exact wheelsets someone would have posted the weights by now. So Bob, make yourself useful, search the threads, find the weights and report back here. Pronto. Until then, thanks? Consider yourself lucky you were not ridiculed for the "help" you provided.

    Threads like this will never die as long as helpful people enable those who won't bother to do 3 minutes of research. Now can someone tell me the spoke length I need for ....

    Oh never mind. Stop bumping this thread! Ooops

    Guys,

    I did a search and could not find the answer I was looking for. My intentions were to thanks the original poster for his ballpark figures though.

    In all honesty each wheel build is going to vary anyways due to different spokes, nips, and rim weight even from the same manufacture. What I gave you will be just as close as actual builds weights will be. The only thing I could be off a tad on are the spokes and I can get closer if I went down stairs and weighed a couple but that would involve me leaving this lovely piece of salmon alone with a hungry 65 pound dog.

    Oooo the green flowered pattern. My parents had that in the 70's-80's Eventually we talked them into "upgrading" to the Harvest Gold pattern in the early 90's when an elderly relative passed and the set was free. Eventually they went to college with my brother in 2001. They may have found their demise there.

    BTW, I've contemplated similar wheel build. Your numbers are solid enough.

    Yeah they are awesome, we had like a bazillion kids awhile ago and a family had a parent die and they gave us a complete serving of 16. I remember back in the day these where suppose to be indestructible, well the other day I wasn't paying attention to my wife so she decided to drop 3 of them together to alert me she was getting annoyed. Let's just say when 3 are dropped in unison they explode everywhere, still finding pieces in my shoes .

    I'm hungry, is that wild or farmed salmon?

    This could be a trap, not answering.

    not to mention, because Nextie gives you so many finish options, weights of the rims can vary quite a bit just based on whether or not the rims are painted, whether the carbon is UD or a 12k weave or whatever.

    OP, you also did not specify hub widths, so that's another question.

    Which spokes do you want to use?

    I was guessing 150 front 170 rear due to the fact the rims he has now are Jackelopes which come stock on a Farley 8. Just an assumption on my part but we all know what it means to assume anything

    True. I didn't feel like looking up the specs on a Farley. So I'm guilty of the same transgression as the OP. But his was first!

    Also, nipples come in different lengths, and Bob neglected to include the weight of the Spoke Prep residue.

    I personally prefer long nipples, ones I can get a hold of with my teeth.

    Bullsh!t. I typed "Hope Fatsno", "Nextie Rims" (spelling), and "Sapim" into google. Less than 5 minutes later I had my answers.

    Yeah, at LEAST come to the board with the easy stuff figured out, so they're filling in a few blanks, not writing the whole damn math problem.
