As bikes get lighter and lighter the price gets higher and higher. I was wondering if it could make having the best equipment less obtainable for racers. Sure it would be available, but would a racer be able to afford it. At the sport and beginner levels this may not affect the results of a race as much. At the expert and pro levels it could make a difference. A poor expert racer may not be able to afford the high quality hardware. What do you think? It's Saturday night and I'm bored!
