Light Bicycle Wheels

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You are very smart.

I say that because that is exactly what I have.

We don't have a lot of mountains in Ohio, but it does get windy spring and fall. It is hard to say if the new, deeper wheels make that much of a difference for me, after accounting for what I as a rider stick up into the crosswind.

Yes (at least in our experience).
