I'm a lighter rider (135lbs) and the 7ka's seem like really heavy rims.. is there any rims that are lighter, a little less beefy but still good, and possibly a bit cheaper? I don't think a 7ka is right for me. Also, for the back hub, in "PROFILE 3/8" MINI CASSETTE HUB" what is the 3/8 for? Can't seem to figure it out. I'm going profile mini back and marmoset front ^^ going to be sick. Also, what are the "Q-lights and dt spokes?" links would work fine
from another thread that no one responded to.

I really like the hazard lite, its the same weight as the 7ka but cheap. And stronger. I always use 14mm axle in the back. It just seems right.

the 3/8th is the axle size.
14MM should usually be the rear and 3/8ths up front is normal.

The hazard lite and the gsport are both excellent rims and very light

When the profile hub says 3/8 mini is a race hub. it has 3/8 axles rather than 14mm

The q-lites and dt spokes are spokes that attach the hub to the rim.. i dont no much about these specific kind but i do no that a lot of people like dt swiss spokes

you wont get lighter than 7KA's really. and you dont know what 3/8ths means? in means its a 10 mill or 3/8ths inch axle.

WRONG.

Qlite is a cassete system for a hub.

ok i really dont know what your problem with the 7KA is other then you cant afford it
its as light and strong as they come. If you are SUCH a weight weenie you need to go EVEN lighter i dont know
what to tell you. Alien Nation does make some nice rims and they are strong enough.

I have the Alienation Runaway front and back

I think they're about 13.75oz but double walled. I've used them for jumping stairs and not bent them

As much as I am a weight whore, you're going to need to be seriously careful with the Ankle Biter
