    Weinmann HL80 rim weight drilled?

    I purchased a bike with drilled Weinmann rims and I was wondering if anyone has weighed just the rims? On the Weinmann website it looks like the installed rims are 1000+ grams but there is no info on them drilled. It looks like the weight published is undrilled because it appears undrilled on their website. Any guesses? I guess it's really anyone's guess but maybe some one has an idea of how much weight is lost in general when going from undrilled to drilled. The reason why I am asking is I am trying to decide how much of a weight savings I would get if I upgraded to a LB carbon 90 mm rim vs their 65mm rim. Thanks.

    The website list them at 1200 and you lose about 200 after a drill.

    Will let ha know after I drill alternating 3/4 inch holes to the wheels. Works out out to be 60 holes per rim...should be another 200 grams per when done. Not much but we'll see!
