I rode down to Conegliano and found a new (to me) road up into the prosecco hills above town. It's a gorgeous area with many bike rides. I ended up in a place called Rua di Feletto and after some touring around I began descending. After awhile I realized I had been near the Castello di Conegliano but I was already down the hill. Some pics of my prior visit are here http://dolomiti-friulane.blogspot.it/2015/01/castello-di-conegliano.html .
As for the wheels they feel wonderful. The reduced rotating weight felt like the whole cogset had been shifted up a cog: each gear felt a little easier than usual. Acceleration also seemed easier, as if I had a lightened flywheel. Really nice and surprisingly inexpensive.
