Light,though a couple pounds doesn't really make a lot of difference in feel to me personally. If it feels heavy weight lift instead of becoming a weight whore. No point getting light stuff that breaks. And,I find pumping and airs feel slightly better with a heavier bike.

perfect, my Bone Deth weighs in around 25 and feels amazing. Rode a locals guttershark the other day that weighs in at 19 pounds and it felt like hell, so uncomfortable.

seems good to me

my bike just got to 24 and its heavy for me for know cause i was always used to high 22-23 lbs bikes, i added that wight in the tires though and i think that is the biggest difference for weight.

you can have 2 same exact builds, put khes or power blocks on one and heavy 28+ oz wire beads like undertakers or most big wire bead tires and they will feel totally different

does it feel nice? if your bike feels nice to you who gives a fuck what it weighs.


if you do want to save weight here are some ideas but allot of them are stupid because your bike sounds pretty sweet already

get racing innertubes you can save lodes of weight if you are using thick ones
cut your seat post, bars and steer tube
get a cult 510 chain
if you have brakes take them off but if you like brakes keep them
one your aitken's wear out get premium folding tires
profile hubs are surprisingly heavy get some proper or deluxe f-flight hubs for the rear and eastern for the front
g sport birdcage rims
