I currently have the alexrims at450 http://www.alexrims.com/
and want to upgrade to easton vista wheelset
If you go here http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/catego...t/sl1000-19927
and look at far right corner and click show full specifications under wheels it states
that the front is 1300grams and rear is 1800grams.(I have that same trek1000, orange though)
The easton vista wheels according to their site Weight - 1797g (pair); 777g (front), 1020g (rear).
(1) Am I correct about the weight of the Alexrims at450 being a combined 3100 grams(that seems pretty heavy). Their site states the rim for the at450 is just 450grams. So with 2 thats 900grams meaning the extra weight must be from the hub and spokes.
(2) Will I notice much performance gains from this upgrade?
