reasonable way to save bike weighth post #1
here are some thigns uc an do to save a couple pounds on ur bike, without turning ur bike into swiss cheese

Cut seatpost down
Cut handlebars down
Cut the fork down on the top, and lower the stem, but i wouldnt recomed it though
Cut the fork dropouts enough so that it holds the wheel, and dont stick out that much
Cut the frame dropouts down to smaller size
Do not use pegs
Do not use a brake, ride brakeless
Since riding brakeless, chop off the 990 brake mounts
Use like 24-9 gear ratio
Use 1pc cranks
Get 1/8 in wheels, and the dropouts to match
Take away 2 screws on ur stem, and crisscross the other two
Take away like 8 spokes from ur wheels, and redo them them to do a 6-cross (to add streghth)
And get everything sealed, like pedals, cranks, headset
And if you really wana go light, ride without a seat or seatpost

if u do all this, ur bike will be sturdy enough to takequite a beating, and will be about 15 pounds, but u dont want ur bike that lite, u really dont

i didn't even bother reading it...do some pushups...and get a life...seriously companies are going to be making race frame light bikes for street riding soon...because you people demand the light ass bikes.

infantry rider, im not saying what i want, my idea of the perfect bike weigh is 32 pounds, im just sayin for the people who want their bike lighter, so that they dont have to drill holes everywhere, even in the rim :p
