A while back we had a thread on this forum (I searched for it but can't seem to find it) from someone asking about drilling holes in his frame in order to save weight. Later in the thread someone was asking about his weight (due to safety of drilling holes in a frame) and he was up somewhere north of 230 pounds or so. So yeah, makes much more sense to drill a bunch of holes in your bike to save a few ounces rather than diet and lose 30 or 40 pounds.
