    sub 30? BF said Rio has...

    Hey Rio,

    It has been asserted by a certain small business owner in S Anch that you have 34 lbs between your legs, not the sub 30 you claim! Please explain.

    ... and if we just ... Size does matter

    I had to have a drastic change in my spindle length so I could have a sub 30 and all this cold weather also causes major shrinkage ! 29 lbs.:1 oz

    Going for sub 24 lbs.

    My AMP B-4 has been a winter only bike for about 5 years now and should be well under 30 lbs. I'd guess stripped down, no tool-parts bag it shouldn't be much over 26 lbs. with SnoCat SL's. I run Nokian NBX 2.3's on the rear and and after cutting off lugs to get the pattern wanted, ended up with a 100 gram pile of rubber. Planning on turning the new Motobecane Team Fly into a winter bike as it's got good tire clearance. It's under 20 lbs. now and by switching out the Sidi fork for a rigid lightweight one and having Simon build a set of fairly light, (depends on how much money I have after a big building project is done), SnoCat SL's I'm hoping to get it under 24 or even 23 lbs. I like the idea of having a rigid bike for multi day winter trips too, while the AMP has never let me down it just make sense that less parts means more dependability.
