Yep, rotating mass. High school physics.

I tried to weigh the wheels but the Fuchs were too light for the bathroom scales I was using. I could have done the me holding them and subtracted the me from the weight. But just wanted to get the swap done.

Probably the wrong term, but acceleration with the old wheels felt more linear, more even. Whereas the 16" wheels have a more lively "get up and go" feel about them.

The circumference was exactly the same. I chose the particular tire for it's circumference.
