    Hey everyone,

    Been to the DT Swiss Spoke web site, read up the weight comparison and I also e-mailed them but
    have not heard back from them. So let's set those guys aside. I have also gone to the local pro
    bike shops and I seem to get alot of different answer and most being opposite from what DT Swiss
    claims for their spokes. My question is has any one actually weighted these spokes to find out
    which ones are the lighter spokes: DT Revolution 2.0/1.5/2.0 mm or the DT Super Comp 2.0/1.7/1.8
    mm and what about the DT Competition 1.8/1.6/1.8 mm ?

    Thanks and hope someone out there can help answer this question.
