    Paint? You were lucky. We used to remove the metal, and cycle on pointed pieces of bamboo that we felt grateful for....

    And don't forget that you will save weight when you switch from your winter clothing to your summer clothing. Going sleeveless is a massive reduction in weight and drag and obviously you will shave your arms and pits to save even more weight and drag. :laugh:
     
  3. I want to loose a kg or so from my CAAD9, will removing my forks and front wheel have the desired effect?

    Get rid of the bottom bracket- it's not as though you need it.

    My bike is loads lighter if I simply don't get on it ;)

    Does that mean that it will be lighter if I don't sit on the seat when I ride?
