    Kona, you volunteer to wrench on bikes? Every time I start to think you aren't a made-up persona, you post up something that changes my mind. You are clearly a master of the interwebs.
    And the funny part of that is I don't plan it out. It just happens.

    I switched out the 2.1" tires for 1.9" tires and gained a pound on the bike. That's crazy.

    Why crazy? A minimal 0.2" difference in inflated casing width is probably the least of factors that are likely to cause one tire to weight more than another. Do you mean to say that you specifically swapped tires for the sole purpose of dropping weight, without actually checking first to learn about the weights of the different tires?

    Drop the psi by five pounds in each tire and kona has an 18lb rocket ship of a bike.

    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Yep! Hence why so many people run tubeless these days.. much lower PSI = several pounds lighter. It's a simple concept, really.

    Don't look down here...

    Re: One size too big?

    Think of how much weight we could save by letting the air out of our forks and rear shocks!

    another trick is to shop in the UK

    Trading pounds for bike parts (or wares in general) is a smart way to go

    I got a good 9 miles in yesterday. Felt pretty good. Came home and noticed the rear wheel is once again about 2 to 3 mm out of true in a few places. I work at the local bike shop, I have access to a Park TS-2 truing stand, yet I'm scared to try to true out the rim. Is 2 to 3 mm out of true something to worry about? Thanks guys!!
