If you have the money, get lighter wheels. I just built up a complete, took forever, but thats the most noticeable weight savings. Primo 7005 rims w/demolition front hub and shadow rant v2 rear. takes awhile to save up, but its worth it. Pivotal seats save weight, bars, stem, frame, etc. Problem with really light frames though is they break easier if your bigger like me

|

6/23/2008 12:25 PM

True. I remember when I made the switch from 48 spoke wheels to 36 spoke wheels. I put a 1.75 tire on the back wheel and went to the track. I ended up throwing my bike all night because it was scary light for what I was used to.
