I'd keep it, unless you really need the money for paying bills ? Don't think anyone ever gets what they put into one, unless it's a brand new, unused bike out of a business and there's profit built into it ? Rule of retail, double the costs, maybe even pad the profit margin ?

If you've only got 11 Pounds into it, maybe you can make a profit and get 20 Pounds or so for it.

I was skeptical of 11 lbs too, would want to see it on an accurate 3rd party maintained scale for myself. But it does look like a very nice bmx. Never know though, it could be an aluminum frame ?

I don't believe it either. Maybe 21 pounds. It has u-brakes, so I'm guessing it's not an aluminum race frame which would still put it well over 11 pounds. Even if you put helium in the tires it's going to weigh more then that.

The wheels weigh probably 6 lbs themselves, 4 for the frame, 2 for the forks, 2 for the cranks, 3 for the bars and stem and maybe 2-3 for everything else. Doesn't add up to 11 lbs

pssshhh....16t freewheel is actually -6lbs ...you obviously dont know your way around a bike. specially since u over looked the obvious...that little sticker on the front is actually the most important component at -12lbs.

lol on a serious note i didnt even notice the screwed up gearing till you said that

White cable housing is -2lbs per foot.
Even with only the one brake set up that way he is -20lbs!

If he didn't confuse lbs and kg, and re was serious about this, I feel a trip to see him, with a swift kick to the teeth is in order. Also note that he's only posted one time....
