I have been shopping for road bikes lately and have have had some interesting experiences. The one that has stood out the most was the guy who was trying to sell me a nice (and expensive) TREK Madone Series 5. He claimed that I would regret not getting a lightweight bike. Since I am currently riding a 34 pound GT Mountain Bike I just kind of laughed to myself and walked out. After I left, though, I got to thinking. Can one (or should one) be both a Clyde and a weight weenie? Are any of you?
