Hmmm...both of those are pretty good deals. Those Creeks are not mine, so I don't care. Just thought people might like it. We could probably go back and forth with different wheels, because there is so many of them. Which one is the best? Who knows. If I had all the money in the world I would probably get these:  Keep dreaming Mario, keep dreaming...

I'm fairly confident that they were like 1680ish?

Also... I'm not trying to make you look like a jackass but...

There's these, which are aluminum so you won't need to get new brake pads, they're clinchers so you don't need to spend a ton for tires (though I think everyone should ride tubulars), they come with skewers and ceramic bearings and they're sub 1400g.

These are basically the same as those cane creeks, but they come WITH skewers and have an aluminum braking surface so you don't need to run special pads. Weigh 1646g actual.

There are sooooo many wheels...

Yeah, I know they are not the lightest but they are not SO HEAVY either. For the price?-I think they are pretty good deal. Remember that your wheels were also used, these are new. If I had a choice I would pick yours. But if you don't have that $800-$1000, this is good college option. Crosby rode on these for few years till he crashed and destroyed his bike.

Oh, and remember when you actually weighed your Rolfs, they were way over 1700g :P

Those wheels are sooooooo heavy. Especially for tubs, and carbon. I paid ~$800 for my reynolds, they're 4mm less aero, came with skewers, and are around 1200grams. My Rolfs weighed that much and they were clinchers.

edit: WITH tires and magnet, my wheelset is ~1800grams.
