    I have 25's on my Insight 1, and never had a problem, it's comfortable and responsive. The difference between those and the stock 32's is huge, and the 25's inflate to 110lbs.

    I have a 720, I'm not sure how close they are, but I put straight mountain bike bars on mine, and cut them down to 460mm and added bar ends.

    Where did you buy it?
    3lbs is a lot of weight off the front end.
