How heavy are the rides? They look really, really heavy. Almost like marching crashes.

the 22" is pretty heavy, but the 20" is actually really thin and opens up extremely easily

I have a few dream rides:
- Zildjian K custom 22" HD ride (versatile)
- Paiste 24" 2oo2 ride or Giant beat ride (poppy stuff)
- Zildjian K left side ride (Peter Ernskine) (pure jazz)
- Sabian 18" Manhattan Jazz Ride.

Many more that i can't think of.

Oh man, I wouldn't mind Peter Ernskine's Left Side Ride, mmmm. And the Giant Beat rides are amazing, nice choices all-round.

I wouldn't mind the K Dark Ride as my light ride (go figure), they are exceptionally light, exactly what I'm after, except some more wash (from memory). All my current cymbals are very dark, and I'd therefore love some contrast.
