    Does anyone have weights for Fantom Trail, 700HT

    Trying to decide if the extra $150 is worth it to move up to the Fantom trail. Does anyone know how much either bike weighs?

    I had Tektro IOs on a bike I sold recently and I hated them so much! I guess I can try the Aquilas on the 700HT if the weight difference isn't much.

    I would guess that the Fantom is lighter, but you should be looking at more than just weight. The Fantom has a much better (upgrade worthy) frame as compared to the 700ht. Also the parts spec is slightly better. In my opinion it is more than worth the extra $150.

    I don't ride nearly as much as I used to, so I just want a lightweight bike. I'm sure Alivio spec parts would last me a long long time.

    Looks like I'm going to have to buy the Fly XC. I don't think I can handle 30lbs.

    Weight only really effects you when accelerating and climbing and a half a pound or so isn't even going to be noticeable anyway.
