lightest rim tape

I just got a new cross country bike and i spent all da money I haved saved on it, i want 2 do some races before the winter, but i only get paid at the end of da year and i have no more money budgeted for spending on my bike. After I bought everything, i was only left wit a few $$.

I was wondering what is the lightsest rim tape, cuz i want to make my new x-c bike less than 50 lbs?

Or would you have any other suugestions on how I could save weght without spending alot?

I'm hoping there isn't any XC bike out there that weighs anywhere near 50lbs!

Well then your numbers are heavily skewed. There is no xc bike in the 50 pound range, unless someone is using their downhill bike for xc.

u=you
2=to

Keep it to full words please. Your posts are difficult to read, and excessive use of aolese is against the rules

Wow, 50 pounds, thats alot for an XC bike. Are you sure your frame isnt filled with cement or something? Something is seriously wrong if your brand new XC bike weighs over 50 pounds.

Yeah, you ruined the whole thread with this post. Now we obviously know it's a joke but if you played it up more, you could've had it going.

On another note, since this fellow speaks ebonics in real life, perchance we should throw him a slang filled bone?

Fo' shizzle b, he jus keepin it rayel.

I'm guessing Hooked on Phonics didn't work for you, thread closed.
