Never been a huge weight weeny but I guess by posting this...
I’m finally looking into making my first decent wheel upgrade on my best bike but keep having second thoughts, even with the majority of people saying a wheel upgrade is the no.1 in upgrades.
I’d be going from a stock wheelset of DT Swiss R460 with 350 hubs and looking at getting Hunt 30 Carbon Aero Disc (£900). The overall bike weight reduction looks to be roughly 160g (2%). Otherwise I could just get the Hunt Areo Light (alloy) and save £500.
I’ve never had carbon wheels and don’t fancy massively areo rims due to wind annoyance. Would I really notice the weight reduction of 160g and is that worth £500 more? I’m guesssing the hubs and rim stiffness will be a big improvement.
Also does anyone know if Hunt’s hub noise is louder than the Hope’s freehub iconic buzz?
