#!markdown Actual numbers with assumptions listed, holy cow batman I thought this was the bike industry. Random numbers and unsubstantiated %gains are all I've ever wanted. A few thoughts I would put forth. The static weight may not mean much towards rolling, but if your trying to flick the bike around and such you will feel it. It's also weight at the extremes of the bike which means you need to use more force to move it around then say if it were in the middle of the bike. You can also apply the "unsprung mass" buzz term as well. Another factor for decreased strength with bigger wheels is that you have a larger leaver for a taco-rifec time. Good stuff though guys!
