How much performance difference is there though given the differences between builders? Especially when you account for how different some tires perform?
If you do get a 1400g wheel and want it to be better on super rough roads I would look into getting 25c tires and running them at lower pressures.
I've tried and tried to get this point across but typically rides are shop sponsored and they absolutely avoid the subject to not offend anyone.
My apologies for thinking it was you. Either way grown men getting in someones face because they yelled at them is silly. I tend to only yell in cases of other riders being a danger to me others...

Very very few people out there don't have 5 extra pounds they could lose. I would start there.
Since we're on the topic of hilarious amazon pages I present to you this gem.

Bib shorts with running tights. Regular shorts with tights sounds awful. One waistband is bad enough.

My wife found our 2 year old son with my electric razor and his pants rolled up pretending to shave his legs. :o
