ummmm just for your information its not called "gravitational force "(that is the force that holds you on mother earth . the force you are refering to is "rotational inertia" the farther a mass is from the center of rotation the more rotational inertia it has ,and conversely closer to center less rotational inertia.

Evo 2 flywheel is 12 lbs, down from 19 lbs. It is not as light as a 9 lbs aluminum flywheel, but price is half. Also weight reduction doesn't say it all. What matters is from where the weight has been removed...
7 lbs less taken from the circonference will have more effect than if removed from center. It is called the gravitational force.
