if it ain't broke, don't fix it right?
but if the main weight saving is in the hubs, then 100g ain't particularly noticeable
Really, I could pick up 2-1/4 oz. of dirt per tire without trying. I don't think it's worth it considering you already have nice wheels. Spend the extra coin on fine dining and fine women.Pedlin' Slow said:I put a set of new rubber on my wheels that was 110 grams lighter per tire. Noticed absolutely nothing concerning "rotational mass" or some other gimmick. The new tires worked fine and that's all that mattered. If you are looking to shave a minute or two off a lap time at a race, consider it. If you are out ridin' your local trails with friends and just having a good time, you will probably NEVER notice it.
C29ssmax front 825 / AC front 738 (-87 grams)So i would reckon you will be able to feel anything over 100 grams saved in the area of rims, tyres, nipples...
I already changed almost all the parts on my bike. The wheels is the last thing I could improve. Good advice, I think my wife will be happy to hear that I stop spending money on bike parts...Spend the extra coin on fine dining and fine women...or start your next build
