If it's your first full suspension bike, yep, that is a pretty big deal and worth a few pounds.

Also, I don't care that your bike weighs 34 pounds either.

I no longer care that my girl is 210 pounds. Got used to her size and just love her as a person. Still learning what we can do with the extra cushion during special hugging time.

Mine is just under 40 pounds *barely* and I plan to finish my second season on it. Working on my budget to get a new lighter ride and hope to drop about 12 pounds to crush the trails.

Figuring my 225 pound carcass and a loaded camelback and bike weight is not that big an issue. Riding and pushing myself is the issue.

A thousand times this. I figure if I need to reduce weight to climb the uphill sections of the trails better, I've got some I could stand to lose before the bike is really a concern

How can a waffle be awful? Possibly some of my girth is attributable to waffles, but I loved every bite and take responsibility for them.
