I have one too! Stoked to see another one. Like most bikes, it comes with wheels that aren't as nice as the rest of the components. I got a used set of RS-81s and really like them.

When you are just sitting on the bike, you may feel a lot of weight on your hands. But when you are pedaling the bike, your legs will be supporting your weight, not your hands.

I use bikepacking bags on my Ritchey cyclocross bike when I go on short tours, but would be totally fine doing so on my Lapierre Pulsium as well. Especially if I wasn't camping out.

I have the Strada Bianca and love them. Have ridden them on mixed surfaces with no problems at all. Heck, I'd probably use them on my road bike too, but they don't fit.
