Had some Vuelta wheels for a couple years. Some are great, but this model is very heavy. Only buy these if you're replacing broken wheels on a cheap/moderate value bike that you don't care about upgrading or just want an extra indoor trainer rear wheel. fWIW, Vuelta Corsa Lite is probably one of the best bang/buck wheelsets out there. Cheap, lightweight, slightly aero design points.

Yeah, at this price, I'm getting it for the rear wheel to use with my trainer this winter. I intend to sell the front wheel which makes my cost even lower!

Agree on all points. This model is good for an extra rear wheel to save nicer wheel/tire for outdoor. I have vuelta corsa lites as my everyday wheel. Unbelievable value when you can get them in the $150-175 range.

I laugh when people say these are heavy, do you really want to pay hundreds more for a few less ounces? Why not just lose the weight yourself? lol

Back to the price, am I missing something because I don't see the "Clearance" mentioned on the product itself, could this just be a temporary sale? They've held at $65 for the last month or so that I've been watching them, was wondering if they'd drop even further close to Thanksgiving.

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on these and buy, now I just need a spacer and a 7sp cassette, I'll be good to go! Smilie

For $100 more you can shave almost 1.5 pounds off the wheel set. Not that it is going to make you much faster, but a lighter wheel set will make the bike feel more responsive/exciting. It depends on what you are looking to accomplish if it is worth it. But this wheel set is perfectly fine for many peoples situations.

This.

People spend a ton of money on a carbon frame and cheap out on wheels. Wheel weight is the most important place to save weight. Just read up on rotational momentum. A pound on the wheel will feel like 4 pounds on a frame, or something like that.

That said. For the average rider these are good for the price. Also, a great backup set for the price.

Rotating weight. Look up physics.

but if you're on a 7sp cassette then its best not to laugh at others

Exactly, Taking weight from reciprocating mass is different than overall weight savings

Looked up on Google . Most of the links suggesting that it's (1 ounce wheel = 1 pound frame) myth mostly. They say that It contributes to motion inertia . but that is relatively less.most of the part lies in aerodynamics of the wheel set. Looking for some advise .

Yes, it's the engine not the bike but up steep grades, 1.5 lbs is a huge savings. I ride a 1500g clincher set and moving from 2100g set was absolutely notable. Yes, most folks can stand to lose weight.

I completely agree. Train with the heavy wheel so when I go for that long charity ride with my outdoor wheels, I'll be fitter and have more fun!Peace

I did look it up, it has a negligible effect on the average ride. If going from stopped to an all out sprint, then it could impact your speed, just a little.

"This is the principle that Ondrej Sosenka depended upon when he set the hour record with heavy rims... [velonews.com]

But then again if you laugh at people who run a 7-sp cassette, you probably overpaid for your cute little bike too Wink
