Some of us out there are weight weenies. I myself would like a lighter bike but I'm scared to only because I mash more than I spin. I'm even thinking that my new FSA handlebars were a stupid buy because they only weigh 168 grams. Some people would say that is great. Well I'm 345 pounds....lets see how great they really are when I am flying on a single track. My GF weighs about 28 1/3 pounds and I'm always thinking of going lighter here and there but can't help wondering if I may be pushing it too much. I went biking on the krunchy snow today......that was fun!!!
