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

I was trying to explain why I do not consider the cost of bike wheel in this discussion. Sorry.

It's all right. Think about it this way, the less people listen to your truth, the bigger the advantage you have over them. In the Road forum, everybody has an opinion and unless it offends somebody else, it is typically OK. You don't have to be right to be happy but if it floats your boat without doing any harm? so be it. We appreciate your input and the science behind it, however, it's up to them to listen if they want to. Your 6.7 are probably as good as a pair of alex rims... if you like them then enjoy them.

Contact you? Buddy, if you're trying to pick me up, I've got tto tell you, you're going about it the wrong way. Is this what the whole thing about my mom's basement and meeting dudes on the internet was about too?

No Sir. Sorry if you were confused by my attempt to provide contact information. I understand you may get excited easily by contact from real people... But I am not the one. Get out of the basement and actually meet somebody!

i have only asked for others to provide data about light weight vs. Aero. Obviously those that cannot afford good aero wheels take offense to this discussion. That is not my concern. Just trying to find out what some of the data states.

If you do not justify your reasoning with data. Your toes should be stepped on.

Pretty arrogant, aren't we? It's you attitude, and inability to keep it light, that's spawned those responses. Everyone here gets slammed a little on most threads and usually all in good humor. You asked. We answered. Maybe this just isn't the right place for Army Majors who has not control of the response to his ... pronouncements.

Sorry... I have not found a board strictly for Army Majors to discuss cycling. I really do not care about the harsh responses. I am just looking for data on what wheels weigh for both Aero wheels and Non-Aero wheels.

You really don't get it, do you? This a dynamic community of very very helpful and knowledgeable folk. My comment was made, obviously in vane, and not even hinting, that not much good is going to come out of those responses.

You are the one with the harsh responses to start with. Maybe there is a good reason Army Majors don't have their own large community of cycling folk. It takes a broad spectrum of cyclists to do what we do here.

How did you get to be a Major without knowing how to find all the data you need, either within your military resources or on the wide open internet? Not to mention making a few well placed calls to manufacturer reps, sales departments, emails to all the same, and your local bike shop. (That's a rhetorical question, by the way.)

Actually you should throw some of your weight around and actually talk to the professional cycling teams. Nobody knows like they do the benefits or not of any particular cycle or component.

I believe you and many others are being heavily trolled..
