any thoughts in this? Would the difference in weight be small in relative terms?
Depends on which Canondale. The $10K model is reportedly one of the lightest electrics ever made, in which case, the savings could be meaningful, especially if the stock wheels are one of the cost-saving (ja-ja) factors -the "conventional" range is quite broad. They probably did have to go cheap here and there to keep it at $10K, and still maximize margins here to compensate for declining sales elsewhere.
