Just purchased a new '07 Cannondale Prophet 6. I called Cannondale today and asked about the specifics of the bike. I was told the frame weighs 5.3lbs and the whole bike weighs 34lbs. The frame is made out of 6061 T6 aluminum. I paid $1,300 including shipping, tax, and assembly. How do I go about making this bike lighter? I'm looking at a 17-22lb bike, is my best bet to sell it since it's new or replace parts on this one? I have a $1000 budget, and will have $2300 total if I sell the bike. I'm looking for a full suspension set up, not for hard core mountain biking but I love the full suspension set up. Thanks in advance for your help.
