I was thinking "no way", then realized you were likely talking without rotors or tire mounted.

Did you spring for the ceramic bearings? People talk big difference with the ceramics even in factory wheels.

Didn't go the ceramics this time. I might spring for them later. , as it is I am having to re-calibrate my riding to compensate for the lack of turning resistance. The bike really acts like a totally different bike.

RIGHT, also not as much coasting as rot. mass has been reduced substantially

my forged wheels are not as light as C/F, but they're not far off and come factory

i rode a Duc Diavel a while back w/ forged wheels, then this yr one w/o forged, HUGE diff.
