Thanks Pinky,anything below 35 is fine.On another post the guy said it weighed in at 37lbs., thats getting a little to close to 40 for me. The US spec R2 come with the 2.35 Nevegals I think,also the Nixon Super Air which should keep the lb's down.Pinky said:My Australian spec 20" '06 R1 was 29.5lbs without pedals when I got it. Its heavier now though.
I have fitted 2.35 Kenda Nevegals with stans goo , and replaced the Easton bar and stem with some Kona stuff I had lying around. The shorter stem and more rise in the bars suits my riding style better.
I haven't weighed it since the changes , but I'd guess its still around 32lbs. Low 30's is definately doable.
Not overly concerned about the weight,your right when you say you dont notice,until i lug it into the truck at the end of the ride.37 lbs just sounded a little off,I have a VT and it is around 30,had an AC and it was around 32.I have a 22# HT and it collects dust,cant go back after you get use to 5+" of travel. Was also looking to see how far some guys got them down the scale,just to see what is possible.goRz said:I am the guy with 37lbs Reign Although, weight is usually the last factor I consider, I do not know what makes it so heavy... maybe the scale was faulty or something As long as I ride I do not feel this weight, it becomes noticable when I'm pushing or carrying the bike.
