Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

LOL, to think that I used to have a set of Lightweights but sold them...because I did not like them that much (way too nervous in crosswinds).

dont talk the talk if you wont walk the walk. if available, you must post photos of the key fobs tshirts and hats in case there are disbelievers.

I seem to remember that trekmogul is going on vacation to some place like South America. He needs to post some pictures of his vacation while he is there. Make sure to include those MLW in action photos.

This is only a problem when the wheels are actually used.

If the wind is blowing cross...but the wheels are actually sideways....won't that just cancel out?

Not a fan of Durianrider, but did remember him saying lightweight wheels are not for riding, just for bragging, believe he admitted that's why he bought a pair.

Very impressive.

But both of you could have ridden many of the ax-lightness.
Not the <800g thingys - got to be a svelte 240 lbs for those.

I shed/lost 125lbs in just about 9 months with NO STOMACH Stapling, no drugs, no doctors, just good old fashion desire, want to and will power. It is very hard to do and most can not do it..You have to change your entire life style for it to work. Food has to become a necessity not a HOBBY..It has been 9 years and have not put on a single pound in these 9 years..I went from a 44 inch trowser to a 31 Inch trowser. I would weigh even LESS if I had the excess skin on my stomach, chest, hips and legs removed but not going there..It can be done but as they say..Talk is cheap and it takes money to buy whiskey..

I was just trying to keep with a MEILENSTEIN LIGHTWEIGHT OBERMAYER SCHWARZ theme to the topic..I could not have pedaled a bicycle 1/2 mile back then as I was just a over weight lethargic beer drinking, steak eating guy that was fat and happy..No medical issues then to include, blood pressure, diabetes or cholesterol, just FAT...
