I'm interested in a wheel upgrade for specialized secteur elite.

I'm looking at the corsa lites and superlites. The differences from what I can tell are as follows:

Corsa's are:

1. 100 g. heavier
2. $60 less expensive
3. taller, aero rim
4. stiffer, more reliable, stay in true
5. better for heavier riders

SLR's are:

lighter, more expensive, non aero rim, less stiff, less reliable, more broken spokes (heavier riders).

I'm definitely leaning towards the Lites, not SLR's.

Will I miss the 100 gram advantage?

I think I'll save 3/4 lbs with the Lites, and about a pound with the SLR's.
