Yeah, if it's 8kg with those fat knobblies it must be a real feather with slicks.

Amazing how much weight was saved with just component swaps on that heavy frame...makes me wonder how light a compact folder can be made.

I expect those knobblies to be very light.

That frame wasn't heavy... only about 1kg heavier than a very light roadie frame and only a few 100g heavier than a hardtail MTB frame.

There's a guy who has a Birdy of around 8kg. My Swift is about 8.5kg using fairly plain parts, and if I could find a suitable fork I could cut it to 8kg. I might cut another 1/2kg by going all-out with weight-weenie cranks and brakes and using a dura-ace cassette.

Very classy mods Raxel. Love the anodized red accents here and there. Well thought-of and very pro.


Tell me, is the bike so light that it stays upright on it's own without needing a stand?

The frame is filled w/ military anti-gravity technology keeping it standing upright on its own?
