    I just picked up a 24 spoke Bontrager Racelite front wheel with ceramic brake surface for $30. 610 grams! I hope it isn't too noodlely! I wonder what would happen if I relaced it with Ti spokes. I have not worked out my front brake issues yet, so I have no idea how it will behave in dirt, and can't wait to find out.

    I have it shoed with a Python Airlite (1st gen) and LunarLite innertube. The whole wheel feels OMFG freaky light.

    My rear wheel didn't work out so well. I built up a wheel from parts I had lying around the shop. I use a Bontrager Mustang front rim (same as rear without the OSB, $1 at VeloSwap a couple years back!), alloy nipples, Shimano 600 road hub respaced to 135mm, DT DB spokes and a 'Livewrong' bracelet as a hub duster. I know that adds weight, but it makes me faster through 'Mojo Effect'. I got the idea from Aosty, who has a 29er wheel built up with a Livestrong bracelet.

    It came out to 1050g! Grrrr! Oh well. I'll post a pic in a bit.

    I'd love to see pix of your wheel. That oughta be off the hook light!

    Dang....

    I just realized that your wheel is a Disk wheel (that's what I get for skimming). 701 grams is seriously circus freak light!

    I think I'm going to de-sticker the Bonti rim. The stickers are ugly, and there are so many of them.

    Here are my pix of not-so-light wheels:





    1238 grams for wheel, 3m strapping tape, innertube, stem cap, tire (some dirt on tire), and Ti skewer.

    Ti spokes with Stans

    I asked 2 wheel builders about this combo when I bought my last wheel and they agreed it is not recommended. Stans rims have a tension limit of 95Kg and Ti spokes need more like 120Kg or they will fatigue rapidly.
