Is it worth a wheel upgrade?
I have been riding for a couple of years now and when i bought my first road bike I got quite a nice one so that I wouldn't have to upgrade too soon.
I have a carbon framed bike, with decent kit. It has fairly light wheels (DT swiss hubs), that are 1775g for the pair. I use Conti tyres.
I mainly ride on my own for fitness, but occasionally with friends and have done a couple of 100 mile charity rides. I average about 35-40 miles when I go out once per week and average about 15 mph. I find hill climbing hard, but am getting better and live in a very hilly area.
I understand that My wheels are good but at the bottom end of Giants decent wheel range.
Was thinking of I upgrading my wheels to something lighter, maybe 1350-1400g.
I am also unsure about the benefits of aero wheels, most of which don't seem any lighter than what I have.
If I was to buy some nice light wheels, will I notice any difference.
