This seems illogical to me but I've never owned a bike this heavy before. One of the benefits of a hardtail over FS is that they are typically lighter but this bike im looking at weighs about the equivalent of many entry lvl FS bikes. I am in the market for a used AM long travel hardtail with 26 in tires to take on some more technical trails here in Italy. I've been scouring PB for the past month or so and the only thing that has caught my eye is a kona steely which i'm liking everything about except the fact that the stock weight is 34 lbs. The guy wants 550+ shipping. My initial plan was to try and build a bike up but im considering trying to just upgrade this bike piece by piece to my liking but im not sure if i'll end up spending a lot more $$ this way than buying a better bike in the beginning. Any ideas?
