Felt F1X diet plan ideas?
Not sure where to post this, but cyclocross seemed right because you know the most about 'em
UPDATE: It's on 2008 Felt F1X, didnt include the year! doh
Let me cut to the chase:
I am looking for the biggest payoff replacement parts to make my F1X lighter for on-road commuting. I know that u usually start with lighter wheels, but the ones it came with seem pretty decent to begin with. Anyone interested in my backstory, keep reading.
I was looking at road bikes for commuting to work, I have a full suspension mtn bike but it was just too inefficient to make the ride enjoyable. after talking to a lot of bike guys at work i ended up geting a cyclocross because i'm not used to the super agressive position of a road/tri bike and a cyclocross seemed like a good cross over to the road bike world.
I got the F1x used of clist and it came with road tires which was great cuz the nobby tires would have been the first to go since this is going to be 95% on road use. I've commuted 5 times and its AWESOME!
I added a Topeak MTX aluminum rack and DXP trunk bag which added ~4lbs but has awsome space and usability, and is much more aerodynmic on my big downhill ride into work but considerably heavier than just using my jansport bag.
Thanks for the input!
