    Off road mileage:lightweight ratio

    How much off road mileage do your astonishingly light bikes see?

    How many seasons do you keep them?

    Who here has the highest off road miles to lightest weight bike ratio?

    Just wondering.

    My 20lb SS hardtail gets 4-5 20-30 mile rides a week. Its been rocking for over a year and a half. Thousands of miles. I love it. My other bikes are less weight weenie and ridden less often

    I have only replaced the chain, tires, and brake pads. Though I do have some Weight wennie upgrade plans to drop it to the 19lb range.

    Maintaining rideability is important to me. My logic is that a lighter bike is only faster if you actually ride it.
