Will consider it, but as the trip is soon I probably won't bother now. It is quite useable as is and the islands are not huge so I will not be covering a ton of miles.

I bought an entry level Jamis Ventura Sport, and it also weighs in at 21-22 lbs. May be a little lighter now since I replaced the tires with Pro 4s and swapped the stem.
