I was riding downtown with a couple friends and of course we were bombing around trying to race to certain destinations. I kept winning every race and they would always say.. "well your bike is so light".
I was riding a fixed mb track which roughly weighs about 20lbs... They were both riding sub 30lb road bikes.
I weigh in at 228lbs at 5'11. Both the friends I was racing were under 180 and around the same height. Does it matter that Im riding a lighter bike.
What I want to know is, does it matter how light ur bike weighs for performance when you are heavy like me.
I mean, isnt the same difference of riding a 30lb to 20lb bike just the same as losing 10-15 lbs? I guess Im way off here but I feel like it could be the same as carrying that extra weight in your backpack.
If anyone can understand what Im saying, please give me and idea.
