    BMX DiamonBack...

    I Live in Montreal QC, i bought a "BMX DiamonBack" a while back, but im not realy into doing moves or jumps
    , tricks... i got it on sale for 500$ and i feel like its a real heavy bike comparing to someone on the street
    that got his from a "Wall-Mart" so im still wondering why my bike is heavy ? and some other stuff....
    here is a pic that may look a little like my bike i got off google...

    kinda looks like this the color is the same...



    any thoughts ?

    its heavy becuase .....
    i dont know

    just work on lighting it up

    you can:
    cut the bars down (make them narrower)
    cut your seatpost (you only need 3 and 1/2 inches in the actuall seatube
    [U]get new wheels[U] (your wheels are the best place to lose wieght becuase its ROTATING weight)
    [U]take pegs off[U] (if you dont use 'em then forget about impressin the neighbors with them and take em off)
    [U]get a new fork[U] (lots of stock forks are beffy and heavy, so by replacing the one you have you can lighten up your front end)
    [U]take front brakes off[U] (if you dont use 'em of course)
    [U]lighter innertubes[U](rotating weight once again)
    [U]seatpostclamp[U] (less than $10 you can get a seatpost clamp that weighs less than an ounce, the one you have now is probly like 2 ounces...this stuff adds up quick!)
    [U]put helium in your tires[U] (ok, ok,ok it was just an idea...but Nascar and some other racing cars do it...)


    if you looking for the parts...look on
