    Weight only matters when stuff gets that light.

    i was hoping it'd make you rethink your idea instead of just reading whatever i have to say.

    i guess i was wrong.

    anyways, my point was, when parts get that light, i believe the primary concern should be reliability. what good is a part thats a few grams lighter if it's nowhere near as reliable?
    i ride bikes.

    My idea was to make a flippant remark. If I now said "lighten up" it would be a pun.

    No, there's no fight here. I was being a bit of an asinus sapiens but I actually agree completely with Fore's point.

    If there was any point to my original comment it is this: when your bike weighs 37 lbs, you don't worry about titanium bolt kits. It's when you have a superlight bike that you start to worry about every gram. I said that weight is only a concern when parts get that light.

    I didn't say that weight is the only concern. When parts get too light, they start to get scary. Durability, reliability and longevity are real issues with ultralight parts.

    well if someone uses a fork for just one race it perhaps might be worth while to save some grams over safety (although I don't agree with it) However, it goes to the same idea that some people might have a light 'racing' wheelset, and train on a more durable wheelset. However with the current campy and shimano high end racing equipment, I don't believe you are sacraficing that much in terms of reliablity... but that is just MHO
