Are you seriously that concerned with the weight of your bike?
Your very pathetic.
Also, if you cut them off...it limits the amount of customers you may have if you sell that frame.

the bike doesnt really matter if u give me the same bike as you im pretty sure i can do almost everything the same...brakemounts dont weigh to much but i cut mine off cause my pants would get stuck on them...and riding a 21lb bike is just less effort to do it just doesnt make you tired as fast

It wouldn't make a noticeable difference in the weight if you cut them off.

yeh i bet in a double blind test you couldn't tell the difference in the weight while riding between having brake mounts and not having brake mounts on your frame. but that said, cutting them off does make the frame look that little bit smoother!!

Cutting off your mounts isnt usually a good idea, unless you really care about having that clean "flush" look. You never know when you may want to throw brakes on. And it wont save you that much weight either.
