actual 617 g

REAR without skewer or cassette lockring

actual 832 g

3.9% Higher than claimed (not too unreasonable).

Yup, that's pretty much what it says on Weight Weenies too. Although I think that you are the first to post the weight with skewers. I just tried mine out for tthe first time yesterday, no hills yet. They seem to be free of that famous Campy freewheel clicking that I have on my Eurus when I coast. I sort of miss it.

Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:
