I am thinking about getting some American Classic 420s, but they are lighter without the blades spokes. Some of my group rides are on rolling terrian, and sometimes they are up and down Paris Mountain, where every aero and wieght benifit makes a difference.

Are bladed spokes noticiably faster? or just go with the light stuff?

This site lets you do some math but it does depend on climbing, speed, etc.
