    Getting new wheels is pretty easy to do and can make your bike a lot better, along with getting new handlebars or pegs.

    Speaking of pegs, are 2 or 4 pegs better or is it preference? This would be for street riding by the way.

    I removed you from my ignore list, you should be elated. It's all preference. For example, I can't grind right, so I only have pegs on the left.

    No problem. I'm waiting for the G-Sport pegs which are made of plastic. Kink lights are really good and Odyssey j-pegs are good as well.

    1. Take off your brakes.
    2. Slam your seat, and cut your post to a few inches for the hell of it.
    3. Your bike is better.

    Madman is pretty right.

    More about pegs, If you have them only on one side, does it make it harder to balance manuals and stuff? And if I had 2 heavy pegs and 2 light ones, where should I put them?

    If you have a heavy peg, I would put it in the back and put a light peg in the front. It doesn't make anything harder, it just takes getting used to changing them.

    Drill large holes in your frame. Drill out your rims, cut your bars to 20'', drill holes in your stem, take all the padding out of your seat, drill holes in it, recover it with no padding, or don't recover it at all. Make a wedge seat post mod, and cut your seat tube down, cut your axles, cut the flanges off your grips, no brakes, no valve caps, titanium bolts anywhere they can go, ti spokes, ti axels, ti spindle, ti sprocket, ti seat post, ti pegs, plastic pedals, no bar ends, and carbon fiber headset spacers. Ohh and don't forget to cut the crossbar out of your handle bars.

    Damnit, I thought you forgot the carbon fiber headset spacers. If you get two, you save twice as much weight.
