Yeah, The guy at the bike shop weighed my kh/schlumpf hub and said the same thing "it is a little over 3 pounds".

I am not sure how much the road hub weighs though.

As far as the slop factor goes...

even though I last rode the road version of the hub over a year ago, the KH/Schlumpf hub feels very similar as far as play in the hub is concerned. You really don't notice the play that much after you ride it for a bit.
