How much do your Aero and Non-Aero wheels weigh?

Notices
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

Your light weight wheels are 1275g. So the difference between boat anchors and light weight non-aero wheels is 200 grams? That is less the a half of pound? What do you consider light weight vs. heavy wheels?

They're not race wheels, but they're not quite boat anchors, either - talk to the guys with disc brakes about that!
Compared to the aero wheels, together they do have 26 more spokes, mid-grade alloy hubs and doublewall aluminum box rims rather than CF, but that's all to withstand the beatings of the roads hearabouts.
And they're pretty.

I am not self important at all. But I make enough money working as an Army Officer that I do not have to worry too much about money. I am a married Major without kids. Life is good.

Enve 6.7 Tubs are 1495 grams. I run a very consistent stages power meter that save me a ton of weight.

I've been having these weird spells lately when I can't read. It makes sense now: My reading ability is impacted every time this guy that I have never met gets drunk.

It's good to see that your left leg puts down consistent power! You may want to measure your right one too.

Probably closer to 100 percent of the people on this forum you have never met. Get out of your moms basement and meet somebody.

Actually there is no need. Stages has been proved consistent. I do not care about actually power. As long as my numbers between rides are consistant, I can measure improvement. No need to measure both legs. I am not bragging or looking to brag about how many watts I can carry up the alp d'huez.

Hey, just joking with you. You are in the armed forces, for that I thank you (while I may not necessarily agree with the cause, no offense). Have a few more beers and enjoy your bike with or without aero wheels. My honest personal opinion? They are worth every penny just based on looks. Performance? No idea, they feel better???....

Most people are pretty close left/right power. I had major knee surgery in 2013, so I picked up the garmin vectors recently. Turns out my balance power is usually 51/49 or 52/48 most days with my left being higher, which is also my knee I had surgery on. I've used powertap, stages, vectors and compared them with my calibrated wahoo kickr... and guess what.. they are all really close. The stages is fine.

There's also a thread on his car--straight out of a sixteen year-old's fantasy--that has already made its way to trollheim.

Thanks. Not asking anybody to agree with me. Just trying to post my opinion on cycling due to experience and research. Many on cycling forums do not actually reattach or try products and have an opinion. That is all I am addressing. Most post on forums that Aero wheel are not worth the money because they cannot afford them. I understand the feeling of trying to argue about products so you do not feel inferior. There is just a time to let it go.
