. I'm not kidding. I'm currently running a standard 2.1 tube in the front to shave some weight but every time I run non-dh casing tires I pinch flat all the time
. I recently switched to a 24" rear wheel and that shaved about a half pound
. I have a little more trouble cleaning some of my favorite switchbacks now
but the weight savings is worth it on long steady grades. What's up w/ those Al rotors? I saved a few grams by switching to a 6" rear hayes but the aluminum rotors look like a good idea. Do they hold up on extended descents or do they warp easily? As for the decision to go with the Banshee, I got tired of snapping chainstays on my Uzzi SLX
. What is a big fat weight weenie to do?
