Go with the Giant or the KHS, none of these bike are going to be the "lightest" thing around, but the KHS will probably be the lightest of the 3. The Motobecane is a dog though, they look like good deals at first, but I'd take a SID race over a Judy TT any day of the week.

i dont like the promax brakes...but the frame is listed at 2.7lb


i cannot find actual weights on the bikes...other than the khs...also considered the kikapu and dakkar but from reading here i'm assuming there heavier?

you assumed right

it's always light weight vs. durability or damned if you do, damned if you don't.

If manufacturer #1 lists the weight of it's bikes as a selling point, another manufacturer #2 will always say their own heavier bikes are more durable another selling point.
