It was my assumption that when weight mattered for TT oriented machines, sidepulls won out on centerpulls with Weinmann 500 and Universal 68 being about equal in weight.

<snip> +++++++++++++++++++++++ I weighed a couple of the usual suspects, with quick releases and relatively new brake pads.

138 gm = Universal 68 rear. 119 gm = Weinmann (Motobecane) 500. don't remember if f or rear

20 gm ~ 1/2 oz.
