    The later bikes seem to have oz copies, a genuine wheel was forged and has oz stamped here...







    All the info is covered by the disks and sproket, oz is on one side , and the size and batch is on the other. It is stamped on the forged item not raised as is the cast ones which weigh 40 % more !

    The original oz wheels were anodized for lightness, badly cared for bikes often have been powder coated which adds weight !

    Forged wheels are lighter than cast.....

    Later bikes don't have forged wheels...

    Be careful, there are 2 type of forged wheels, one for radial brakes and one for gen 1 with normal brakes. Gen 1 forged wheels do not have the word "forged" in the rim.
