a couple of days back i weighed my bike and it came out at around 29lbs. When doing so i noticed it was significantly front heavy. Is this a bad thing? should it be the other way around?

I recently decided to order a halo tornado rear wheel, but i am now thinking that perhaps i should have ordered the halo SAS to get the extra weight to at least balance the weight out a bit. Should have i done this?

Thanks for any help.

That is just the way some bikes are... probably most are front heavy. I made the rear of my dh bike heavy once bike to compensate for having a shiver dc fork and 2.7 nevagal on it. Wasn't necessary in the long run.

Don't worry about it.

don't worry about it much. most bikes are probably a bit heavier up front unless they have rigid forks? i read in an interview with allan cooke a while back that your bike should be light from the BB to the end of the stays for better spinning ability.
