Weight update...

TWENTY THREE POUNDS - THREE OUNCES...

I'm considering getting rid of the granny gear and aluminum rotors to race on. I want the scale to read 22 and change....

Apparently all I need to do is take my bike and weigh it at ???? ... EP's bikes were quite a bit lighter on some "fishing scale" then on our brand new Park Tool digi... Those guys...

We at Mesa take weight seriously... We listen to a reggae station sponsored by a gram scale company with the most accurate scales out there!

cut that shit off the back of your head....that alone will save you 7lbs. your bike is already light. It's the "kentucky mud flap" that's holding you back, broham.

you're winning the weight race, my good man. i'm off the back, can't keep up.

i agree with the scale thing. i hear some crazy weights from people and i KNOW i've put the same things on our scales with drastically different results.

ah, what would weight weenie-ing be like without controversy??

I've got a 25.4 hard tail and that is after shaving off a half pound by switching saddle and 3 lbs by getting a killer set of wheels.
