Hat tip to Bob Freeman on CR.
I just bought 4 of the Speeds. 209 gms! At my heyday in a long departed millenium I raced 220 gm silks.

I haven't made the switch yet but I am stockpiling to go tubular on my three "good" bikes. (Peace of mind on 50 mph descents plus the custom fix gear of my BF photo is a pure late '80s road race bike, just fix gear and is crying for wheels better than training clinchers.) I want one wheelset to be as close to my old racing as is feasible.
