Not really too much of a weight weenie as I have a generic 4" FS travel bike. Put some lightweight parts on and had this Raceface bashguard drilled out by an engineer at work... Looks kinda cool...

Same bad idea as pulley wheels with extra holes/cutouts - fine when its dry but you'll find it gains back the weight if you have to ride through mud.

I don't ride through mud... It leaves ruts in the trails.

I bought this one and had it already........so instead of letting it sit around and collect dust, I had it drilled out. I'm not hard on the bike and do not abuse it. I do go to Santa Cruz and bash it over a few fallen logs, but nothing major.
