I hate vague questions like this. Racing, street/park/dirt, or flatland? Complete or frame? Length requirement?

sorry street complete, and what would be the lightest frame. and no length requirement.

i have seen many full carbon fiber street bikes that weigh 16lbs. do they make any full carbon fiber BMX street bikes?

After that comment about "16lb street completes", you'd be more likely to get help from God* than me.

Ugh, I hate server problems. All those hundreds of roadies that sit around on the forums all day instead of working should have to pay extra because they use too much bandwidth from talking about who uses the most steroids and who has the lightest bike.

Lemmy lives off Sunset, down the street from Ozzy. I guess it's kind of a crappy apartment. He says even though he's been rocking since the Vicars, he doesn't get chicks. Something about his looks...
