Yes like half a kilo. Not "slightly" in my book.
(as wheel weight - not compared to bike total weight... there the better weight reduction would be for the RIDER HIMSELF to go on a diet)

I own spoke wheels btw...

I've seen all the pictures with the panniers fitted, but want to see some pictures of the whole bike with just the rails

Thanks bud, I've seen that one. Touratech will be at the bike show in London next week, so as a last resort, I guess I could go and have a look, in the flesh

Those prices are higher from what I know. Your prices are MSRP + Dealer profit.

How is this even possible for a bike MADE in Germany.

(I mean currency conversion loses, plus taxes, plus shipping... it should be more expensive in USA not the opposite)

Also they seem to be getting more sensible extras packs.

It's a big battle for marketshare in the U.S., for cars too and the consumer is the winner. Your country may also have higher customs duties or fees that increase the price as well. In the US we also have sales taxes added on to the prices noted....about 8% for me but varies by State and County.
