I have a 54cm windsor tourist.. great bike.. always thought it was on the heavy side. Walked into REI and checked out their 56cm LHT and CC.. WOW those bikes felt like they were at least 10 lbs lighter! Sure, mine had plastic fenders, pedals, an aluminum rear rack, and a greenfield kickstand.. surely those weights added up can't make up the weight difference right!? I also didn't think there would be that much weight difference between the naked frames..
I wonder if the windsor was shipped with cheap heavy rims.. Any ideas? What would likely by the components making up the weight difference?
