Well freestyle bikes weigh a good bit more than a race bike. My dirt jump/street bike is about 35lbs maybe more. A buddy of mine's street bike is over 40lbs. You want good strong frame and parts that wont break and those are heavy. Its just the price you pay for durability. There is a saying that mountain bikers have that fits here also. "Light, Strong or Cheap- you can only have two."

I dont think you have a problem. Stop worrying and ride your damn bike. After you ride it for awhile you wont notice the weight.

if your bigger than u will probably need stronger parts so they dont bend, and that ads weight, but if your big u probably have more muscle so it would even out as if you were a small person with a light bike. mine 40 pounds
