My 1995 820 is an absolute pig of a tank. Catalog weight is 29 lbs and mine is the largest size so I would be surprised if it's pushing the mid-30 lb range. At this point I can't decide if the sluggishness is the irrirating knobby tires or simply weight. I suspect a large part of it is weight.
I trust that R&E can get me onto a 26" wheel bike that weighs what I'm used to. If it will end up substantially heavier, then I might change my mind.
