just got a Speed TR as a replacement for my Tikit (trust me - it's not the best decision i made and had a separate thread about this). since i may be using this bike while looking for a Tikit ( i don't want to sell it now as i might end up with nothing), i wanted to ask my fellow members here if anyone had done some modifications on their TR to make it lighter. currently the weight is listed as 29 something lbs. (quite heavy). my first plan of attack is to change the tires to a KOJAK which will save me about 1.5 lbs (just ordered from THOR). i also plan on changing the handle bar to a Ritchey and will save me about .5 lbs. this two changes alone will shave about 2 lbs from the current weight. anything else i can do ? will changing the front rim to a kinetix pro (i really don't want the front dynamo hub and will eventually change it) save me a lot of weight ?
On a side note - i had my first TR ride yesterday and i am liking the SRAM DD a lot. way better than what was on my TIKIT. This single piece of equipment is what really sold me on the TR.
