back to orig topic;
with the 700's you will have less rotating mass like you were thinking, since the wheel is a slightly smaller diameter and usually lighter , along with more narrow tires.
I did notice a little bit of an increase in torque and take off speed when i went from 27's to 700 Deep V's
Many people mention and or complain at the weight of the Deep V's , but like me, you are going from 27's and i'm guessing even possibly steel ones, to aluminum deep v's , i don't think you will have any concerns what so ever.
More than likely you will be impressed at how stout the wheels are, and how much road vibration they eat up and not transmit to your body.
