This gave me a laugh (regarding making a bike lighter)

Reading the page:

I got near the bottom and it said this:

"If you want to make your bike lighter then the easiest thing to do would be to just buy a lighter bike"

:lol:

It's funny but - assuming money is no object - I can't argue with it. :roll:
