Lighter bikes are generally have better kit, but the most important point is the engine. Get a decent bike, and it won't matter much.
10lbs off a bike is a lot....... If you don't have a road bike, then switching to a road bike for climbing hills makes a big difference.
What sort of bike do you have ?
Ah... in that case, you might find a reasonably priced modern equivalent will almost certainly be easier going. If you travel MTB terrain, an aluminium hardtail could be a much lighter way forwards. If you travel light trails a modern hybrid would suit. If you're on the road all the time, there are considerable weight and resistance savings on offer.joconn said:My ride is a ten year old Minelli mtb with cromoly frame. Heavy!
