Faulty Scales

Been working on the bike this morning. Taking off the old parts and weighing them to see what should be replaced at the best part per $$ and gram per $$. Apparantly the kitchen scale that I got is off by a good 30%.

My new rims are not in the 1300 range, but are in the 1750 range as advertised (don't know where I had 1500 from). Regardless, they are still much, much lighter than what I am currently running.

Off to the shop to finish the wheelbuild and then I can compare apples to apples with weights. Stay tuned.

BTW - Craigslist rocks! Just sold the old kitchen appliances in less than 12hours for what I wanted. I have never failed to sell what I needed to via Craigslist.
