Obviously i haven't been paying much attention-- plus i don't have a weight scale in my workspace.
I see plenty of references to wheels being too heavy, or weighting too much, or lighter than brand x or whatever.
What qualifies as a light wheelset? Anyone have any numbers?
Thanks for helping me out...

There is a whole spectrum of "light". Trying to put this in some kind of reasonable order....
- Not for hucking bigger than 10 feet.
- Not for urban & trials.
- Not for rock gardens at speed.
- Not for clydes offroad.
- Not for curb jumping.
- Not for big mashers who tend to notice wheel flex.
- Not for anything other than race day.
- Not for anyone without full insurance coverage.
