When my new bike arrives I’m going all pre season carbon!
Some rear wheel and tyre weights to ponder
std v4 wheel 200. 60 treaded Pirelli 11.4kg
Forged ally m10 17 200. 60 sc1 slick 10.4kg
Forged mag m10 17 200. 65 sc1 slick 10.0kg
when you consider mid 90's an oem wheel weighed literally x2.5 the weight of a mag, so you knew what your money was getting you, and now with tyre there's hardly bugger all in it, so unless you're on the raggedy edge of performance modern FEA analysis and production methods have actually saved you over a grand.Yesh slightly bigger tyre but yeah !
