Why is my friends bike WAY heavier than mine
Ok, yall, I have a friend and she has a nice fixed gear. Basically, she's rolling on a takara steel deep v's (old crappy crank) two brakes and bar tape....
I'm rolling on a no name japanese giveaway (that used to be nameplated tease, don't ask I have no Idea and I didn't take pre picture--dur) mine has vueleta cheap but light wheels, a sugino crank, one brake, no tape but I do have orange grips... My bike is also steel
By my bike feels way lighter than hers
A) is it her deep v's vs my lighter but crappier tiers
B) is it her crappy crank vs my lighter sugino crank?
C) is it the extra brake
The only thing that I think it can be is the crank, the rest of the components seem trivial.. But she wanted to know because she picked up my bike and was like (wow this is light)...
Anyways I picked up hers and was like WOW this is heavy.. Must be the wheels or the crank (or the air in the tires)..
What's yalls opinions? (Please don't make fun of me I'm obviously too sensitive to what other people think, why else would I roll a baby blue fixed gear bike with a top tube pad?)
