|I am curious as to the major benefits one percieves after upgrading wheels. I know weight savings is one reason, but was curious as to what other difference you notice.
I know that people say all the time their wheel upgrade, "was the best thing they've done" to their bike. Having never upgraded, I want to know the differences i would notice. For example, I have OpenPros with DA hubs, if Iupgraded to say, Kysyriums, or a set of Daves what differences would i notice, if any?
i dont plan on upgrading right now, but you never know when my girlfriend might hand me $500.

|for me, I train on 36 spoke bomber wheels, but then in race season I ride helium tubulars, What I find is acceleration is the biggest benifit. Put alittle more power in and you can feel youself accelerating.|

|I'm the guy that got $500 from my wife.
The first thing I purchased was a set of new wheels. Velocity Deep-V rims, 16 hi-tension spokes per wheel, hubs with cartridge bearings and skewers, under 1625g per pair.
Next purchase is unknown at this point. Still have a couple hundred left.
