And if you upgrade your frame to this, you'll totally knock off like 4.5lbs!!!

I looked at the title and that's exactly what I thought.

EDIT: Define better. Drilling holes in your bike will make your bike lighter, but not necessarily better.

Shop around and reaserch stuff.

Example:

A McNeil Pivitol seat/post combo will cut near a pound off your bike.

Getting a set of lighter rims(not hubs unless you have the money) to something like Hazard LT's or Primo Balance will drop more weight.

Changeing from Haro bars to Ody, Sunday and other bars(like the new S&M Slam XLTs...only 1.6lbs) will cut weight...nearly 1.5lbs in some cases.

not neccisarly(sp). most stock rims on haros are single wall. getting new rims will only make it heavier

Become a better rider, and you won't need a lighter bike. If your bike was 10 pounds lighter, there would still be someone out there that can ride better than you on a bike 10 pounds heavier.

No matter what you do in life, there is always someone who does it better.

Doubtful, depends on who is judgeing.


Mirra was the Park king(and he isn't bad on street), but now we got guys blowing up...like Edwin on street. And look at Bruce Chrisman (brakeless and freecoaster)...insane.

On any given day anyone can be the best. Just depends on who watches it and judges it.

That was just an excuse to stop by and "show a little bit of love". If you catch my drift.

EDIT: I can see your wife creating an account on here just to yell at me.

She's Australian. She'd chew you up and spit you out. Some punk called for my daughter, and got smart on the phone with my wife. Said he had a big "thing" for her, blah blah blah. We went over to his house 11 at night, she knocked on the door, and made his friends drag him to the door. She looked him up and down, said "So you're the one with the big... I don't think so". That boy was cut down in front of his friends.

Excuse my AIM sayings but 'lmao'. That's great. Why would someone get 'smart' with your wife anyways? That's just incredibly stupid due to the fact if you aren't good with the parents, you're never going to get to their kid/s. I think that is the greatest event I have ever heard of. Props to your wife.
