I'm still in the process of understanding wheel weight, strength, rotational mass, etc.
I hear (and have felt to a small extent) that lighter wheels make a bike feel snappier and easy on climbs, etc.
I'm wondering how much of that is related to the front wheel and the rear wheel.
If you had two different wheel sets where as pair they weighed the same, but separately the weight was distributed differently, would that make a difference in feel?
Wheelset A: Rear wheel 60% of total weight + Front wheel 40% of total weight
Wheelset B: Rear wheel 75% of total weight + Front wheel 25% of total weight
Given that that wheelset A and B weigh the same in total, would they feel/ride differently? Which would be "better?"
Can saving more weight in the front wheel positively affect the ride or to feel it, does the weight savings need to be in the rear wheel?
