Free Fresh Tip Of The Day :

Go to SportMart and buy yourself a set of running shoes. For every ~4lb you lose, you'll gain about 1hp.

Why do people do all this crazy/expensive shit to their bikes to shave off 2-3lb, when you can do it via a bit of cardio and some diet fixes?! You'll feel better too :D

I know! You overhear these guys talking to the salespeople at some of the dealerships..."So this Ti exhaust will save me 5lbs over the stainless steal one?" And the guy is this huge 300lb fat-ass...he would probably be better off spending that cash on a gym membership, then he could probably knock off 15-20lbs of wet weight. :D

i've heard that any weight shaved below the suspension is worth 20 times weight lost above (at least with cars) which explains why lighter rims are so damn expensive...rider weight has little to do with it...dont know if t's true with bikes, but car racers seem to agree:)

absolutely right light rim is one of the key for acceration.
let's talk about physic. rotational force and mass.
think about it...
u have fixed amount of hand power.
u need to push a 5lb wheel and 50lb wheel.

u figure it out....
