Hey. Got a few questions about the Stolen Heater. Dans says it weighs 27.7 lbs. Is that right? And does that weight include pegs?

How much do you think it would weigh without the brake and pegs and stripped shadow seat?

Lastly, I've mostly seen stripped/shaved fit seats, does it work out good on shadows?

Thanks

weight is w/o pegs i think, stripping a shadow seat will save like an ounce

I think Dans Comp lies to make bikes seem lighter. My friend got a Eastern 9volt and Dans said it was 28 pounds, We weighed it at the local shop and it was 32 pounds, there is some 5 pounds there and I want to know how they got there.

The Eastern site say 28 lbs.. Maybe the scale was wrong...its very possible. But Im sure dans takes all the specs straight from the company.

Aight thnx. Are the stock rims (supra G) decent? Thats about the only weakpoint i can really see. If they're okay, and its lighter than the bel air, I think I may get it. I'll take off the brake and it should be just under 27 lbs.

I hate people who care so much about a few ounces. I mean if you're a good enough rider its not going to make a difference, is it. Also why are you already worrying about upgrades for a proper nice bike that you havent even bought yet? Ride stuff till it shows signs of breaking and then replace it.
