I don't think he meant the the rim would ride stiffer I think he meant will the rim be more flexy.DeeEight said:stiffness of a wheel has practically nothing to do with the rim. A pound of difference in the tire pressure is more noticeable than a different rim.
... you're thinking of the OEM UFOs at Jenson usa for $10. Those are not the real UFOs. Those are 440g. Still, it's a great deal on not terribly light rims for the beater or commuter bike.Jersey said:its actually not THAT light.
SUN lists the rim as 390g, but weights vary anywhere from 388-440, which isnt too impressive.
a 14% variation in weight isnt too great.
