    Are DJ wheels supposed to be heavy as heck?

    Hi guys,

    I'm putting together a DJ/urban bike because I simply have nothing better to do in the winter except work and dream of new bikes for the spring. Anyhow, I've got a guy who is looking to sell some a Transition Revolution 36 wheelset. I think they're rated at 2650 grams, which is considerably heavier than my XC wheelset (obviously).

    Anyhow, I was wondering if most urban/dj bikes run 36h wheels that a pretty heavy. I'm about 190lbs without gear, so do you think I should spring for this big wheelset, or try to find something a little lighter?

    unless your wallet is lined with gold and diamonds, then 2650g is about average for a DJ wheelset. asking why DJ wheels are heavier than XC wheels is like asking why a Dodge 3500 4x4 dually weighs 10,000lbs and a Chevy Corvette only weighs 3200lbs...
