I picked up a new bike fairly recently. I'm really happy with the spec and i love the bike, and to be honest i'm probably not going to change anything on it. But, it's always really interesting to me to see some of the bikes here and how much they weigh, and it got me wondering where the weight was on this bike. Here's the bike:
Weight with pedals is 22.5lbs, it's an XL. Full specs are below.
I see lots of ~20lb bikes on here. What's the big difference between those and mine? My thoughts are: wheels are probably a little heavy (tho i'm running tubeless). I know the 3x10 is some extra weight. The Highball also isn't the lightest frame out there. Am i missing something else? If you made changes, where would you make them?
