Wheel Question

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Wheel Question

I have a 2009 Synapse 7 that's comfortable, but I'm training for a triathlon. The Syanpse is heavy but I'm not ready to buy a tri bike. I do realize that the tires and wheels may be heavy.

I know the Vittoria Zaffiro tires are heavy and I could probably reduce the weight by 1/2 pound with better tires and tubes, but I'm also thinking of the wheels.

These wheels came with the Synapse: Mavic CXP22, with Cannondale 3 hubs and DT Swiss spokes. Anyone have any idea how much these wheels weight? I can't find them anywhere.

Also, would this wheelset, Easton EA50, be an upgrade with the hub and overall weight of the wheelset?

Thanks for any help.
