what weighs more?

I had a y26, but I'm getting a Bruiser 2 instead. The Y26 weighed a lot. I went in and looked at my LBS and chose the Bruiser 2. He said it might weigh a lot as well because of the tires, and rims. what would weigh more?

As a guess... Probably the Bruiser two as its a different style of bike, it will be more heavy duty and more burly, making it heavier..

I'm going to have to differ and say that the Y26 weighs more. Its set up isn't very good. Look at the full suspension componets on it, doesn't look too light. The Brusier seems to look heavier but I'm it's not.

I don't have the Bruiser 2 to weigh. I'll be getting it in late april and wondered if it would weigh a lot. Post your opinion!
