Thanks for the links. I previously searched for info, but I couldn't find any.

I do understand that there are other factors besides weight that go into bikes and wheels. I just don't see the difference between 2 extra pounds of frame weight, and 2 extra pounds of body fat (unless you're a serious racer, where every little bit counts)? To me, the whole weight thing just seemed overrated.

Once again, thanks to all for the replies.
