    LOL! And losing that 0.3 grams will make you go sooooooooo much faster!

    Hey now, it's like a 5g savings (average 2x spoke is ~5mm shorter than average 3x spoke, x 56 spokes in a 28/28 set = 280mm less total spoke length = ~1 spoke = ~5g) and there are people who would pay real money for that! That's rotating weight!

    And this is officially the first time I've ever even considered that aspect of this particular decision.

    Not sure what your opinion is on the subject, but I'm skeptical about the importance of rotating weight. From what I understand, rotating weight will make you FELL slower because you will accelerate slower. Once up to speed, it doesn't make a difference whether weight is rotating or static.

    When someone creates a font called "sarcasm" I will buy it and use it often. I've never seen any compelling evidence that rotating weight is anywhere close to as significant as it it often credited with being. And in order to feel slower, it is my experience and belief that you have to add one HECK of a lot more than 5g to produce that effect.

    Great rim so far. The asymmetrical spoke drilling really improves the lateral stiffness.

    I had assumed your last post about rotating weight was in sarcasm. I just had to get one more jab at the rotating weight weenie crowd.

    Isn't this the sarcasm emoji?
