7 pounds and change....
Holy crap! :-k
I think this one's lighter...
The picture of the hubs drive side looks more like something from the military then something off a bike.
2nd lightest bike. 7.84lbs or 3557 grams
This was the lightest on Light-Bikes.com for a good while.
If you've ever seen the famous Citibank Visa commercial...
that guy has the world's lightest bike!!:lol:
I wonder how robust they are and whether they ride like a pile of crap or not...
why did they say that most wouldn't like it? Is it sarcasm?
I'd be scared riding something that light. No way it feels safe after a burly 45lb DH bike :lol:
where is the cassette on that litespeed. looks liek a SS w/ a der.
Lame, I could see doing this as a profession but just for kicks? Personally there are better things to do than constantly truing wheels and loathing every crack in the road. I don't know how you guys ride around on those things...
apparently the guy rides it daily.
apparently it's a legitimate 2x9. probably a 11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19 cassette, which seems useless or this bike is ridden in Iowa or some other ridiculously flat state. :lol:
He actually says it's a 2x6, not a 2x9. Those extra cogs = too many extra grams. And if he's riding 620 miles/week, as claimed, he's probably strong enough not to need those bigger ones in the back!
right- knew i missed something.
2x6? [email protected] i havent seen a 6 speed rear cassette/freewheel since the 80s.
Tuscan, AZ See link for the shop that built it.
I'm still riding a 7 speed rear on my 20 year old specialized allez epic... and my roadie bike that I keep at my parent's place still has a 6 speed!
I am riding a 6 speed cassette on my old paramount
LOL,, thats a great picture.:lol:
that bike is BA.
It'll weigh over 220 pounds with me on it.
