Neither are anything special by your terms.The maxlights about 24 pounds.

The reason i came on here is ill be racing for a german bike company next year(cube bikes) and am going to be wanting that to hit the 19/20 pounds zone with that bike and am looking for tips.

Cheers mag

Those are pretty nice bikes...

I wish I had a bike like that when I was 14.... but then again... there weren't Dual controls, 27 speed and front suspension was availeble but costly :lol:

but then that was '94... I was riding a Trek 830 (2nd bike) with a rigid fork and 21 speed... I don't know what the weight was... but was ALOT :lol:

good luck with your new your Cube later on.

Cube make some really nice looking bikes. Their annodized finish ones look lovely. Well done for having earnt a sponsor.

Your bar-ends do look funny though, but PLEASE stick with what you like and what works for you, rather than have magazines / websites :oops: and friends dictate what you want.
