As cyclist we seem to be obsessed with bike weights we all want lighter frames, wheels and finishing kits when we all know it's pointless for most expect the top 1% in the sport.
I'm lucky enough to have 2 bikes from a well known brand which share an almost identical geometry one is a 'lightweight' bike 7.1kg with pedals and cages which i could weenie down to 6.5 with some expensive carbon bits. The other is 8.2kg plus cages etc this bike is my favorite out of the two! This is purely because of one aspect which is that when i'm decending hills/mountains it's much more planted and in return less frightening at speed. While the light bike may climb slightly faster and feel ever so slightly more spritely as an all round bike heavier is best for me.
So would you really miss your weenie bike?
