    weight in bmx isn't really an issue. it just depends on your point of view.

    Smart choice - don't need some buttwipe whose says crap in here screwing around with his flaming posts.

    The first thing you have to do is give us a budget - how many THOUSANDS of dollars do you actually have to spend on your "super light and strong" bike?

    How long have you been riding?

    New wheel set, riding on a proper 10t cassette with araya or odyesey rims??, and a new sprocket. Forks are light so no need to change them........i would just get the gearing down and focus on the wheels. Maybe enter sum races?? sounds stupid but you do get some super light prizes, competitions.

    How much does your bike weigh at the moment?? mine weighs 26.6 lbs, now thats light. My bike is still strong so dont forget to get good parts. If maybe summit is cheap and light BEWARE its probly CAKK!! spend some money on it, in the long run you will save money MOOOHAHHAHAHAHH!!!!!!!!

    Yup - A good wheel set will rip through your 500 aussie dollars like cream cheese.

    Profile hubs, 10t driver, Odyssey Duralectric black rims, and your cash is history!

    But, you'll be psyched on your wheels.

    You will (must) get a new sprocket as well - 27 or 26 teeth.

    Next up would be switching your frame out.

    If he gets a 10-tooth driver, he'd probably want a 28-10 gearing, Paul.
