    2005 Jekyll Weight

    A buddy of mine is getting rid of his 2005 Jekyll. I rode it and really liked it but it seemed a little heavy. I weighed it and it was a little over 33 lbs. I'm currently riding a KHS Comp ST, which weighs in about 27 lbs and while I know they're different genres of bikes, I'd prefer something under 30 lbs and to buy the C-Dale the accounting dept says I have to get ride of the current ride.

    Any suggestions on weight loss for a 2005 Jekyll? My first thought was to replace the fork, the type of riding I do I think a 100mm fork would suffice. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Very easy , switch to all XTR , and I mean crank , chain , brakes , derailleurs F&D , and wheelset , EVERYTHING , there you shed 3 lbs off , but it will cost you 4 grands

    If that is not enough , use Titanium hardwares , bolts , and reduce water in your camelpak at a last resource.

    Just like a woman diet , the last few pounds are the hardest to loose
