Have you ever wondered how much mud, dirt and grass on the frame and components weigh after off-road ride? I have just scraped these from my wife's bike and result is: 14 g. It surprised me since I expected more, but the mud was dry and tubes are relatively thin (steel Ritchey). How about your dirt?
Best regards,

MBR (UK bike mag) do a mud pluggers test each year and weigh the bikes before and after. The difference to a Klien Attitude was 4lbs! No mud where I live though :D .
Not like other boys.....
