there is a spot where the line is drawn. at about 24 lbs, i can't notice a real difference in weight if you give or take 2 or 3lbs.

Unless you start hitting the gym, yes.

Agreed, but if your golfball weighs 3 pounds its gonna be a lot harder to hit it far...

a lighter bike helps, hitting the gym will help somewhat, but have you ever seen someone huge try to ride a bike at first? they suck. just practice buy parts and lighten your bike as you go.

haha your a retard huss, you cant be sarcastic! justridebmx one upped your theory. your right, its form not how hard you hit the ball. But if the ball is lighter and your clubs are lighter then you will hit the ball farther. so you cant be sarcastic against a theory thats better than yours.

crank length, toptube, degrees, and angles (geometry), stem length, fork offset and bars can deffinately effect how you ride. weight isnt that big of an issue and having a tiny sprocket isnt going to make you ride better either btw

Did he factor in the African-American part? I'm sure that plays a role.
