What do ya'll think of this build? Looking to shed weight and bling out the Wife bike. 2017 Kona Hei Hei 29, no thrashing, just trail riding.

Option A - 28 Hole Velocity Blunt SS, Sapim double butted, on I9 Torch Hubs - prowheelbuilder says 1498g.

Option B(ling) - Full I9 Trail 245, 28 hole wheelset at 1560g + sweet colors.

I'm wondering what the difference in ride quality would be, and if she would notice anything other than the rear hub engagement. Would the i9 wheelset feel any different, and worth the extra $400? Who knows?
