Interesting article. The only quibble I'd have is not testing the effect of going to a larger but lighter wheel, where overall tire+wheel weight is the same. Isolating the effects of increased weight versus increased leverage (more weight at the outside edge of the wheel) would have been of interest in deciding whether or not the lighter wheels are worth the investment.

Agree with you on that but still a good read.
