New Wheels - Stan's / Circus Monkey / Sapim

This week I finished building a new set of wheels for the vintage FSR rebuild, and they are surprisingly light.  I found NOS Stan's ZTR 355 non-disc rims on ebay and snatched them up.  I would have preferred 32 hole rims, but they are 28.  I can live with it.  Next ordered was a set of Circus Monkey hubs in green, Sapim Laser spokes, and Sapim geen aluminum nipples.  For the lacing, I went with two cross front and rear.

The wheels were weighed individually and together on a Feedback Sports Alpine Digital Scale.  I like the scale, but it rounds out to the nearest 10 grams.

Front: 560g
Rear: 740g
Pair: 1290g
