Subject: Wheel Weight
Can anyone tell me, in grams, the weight of the wheels that come with the '14 speed concept 7.0? I'm trying to compare them to the Flo 60's, which I've heard are a tad heavy.

not sure on the weight...probably a little less than the flo's. Not that you'll ever notice.

Wheel weight is basically a pointless number when it comes to time trialing and triathlon. Only in the steepest of climbs will those grams (possibly) matter, and you shouldn't be riding an aero bike in those situations.

You can email trek though, they should be able to give you the exact number.

Just looking at them, I'd guess in the 1700g range +/- 100g.  The FLO's will undoubtedly be faster.  

Aero trumps weight.
