Hello all. I recently bought a 2019 Norco Fluid FS4. I love it, but it is pretty heavy. I was looking for a 2 or 3 but my bike shop said they couldn't get any until May, so I have $ to spend to upgrade.
I keep reading that Norco uses cheap wheelsets to keep prices down, but I can't find the exact price for the wheelset on this bike.
My question is, assuming wheelsets at similar price points give similar qualities, how much would I need to spend to make a noticeable difference?
Live in southern Oregon and most of my riding is long fire road ascents and fast descents, with a good mix of rock gardens and flow trails.

Well, there's two parts to the wheel set. Rim weight and hub points of engagement.

You can knock both off the chopping block with a set of Stan's flow mk3s or Bontrager line 30s with the 108 Point of engagement upgrade kit
