Is 2lbs really a big deal???
You may have gathered from my other post I am looking at a Commencal Meta AM29 but I have heard some say that although they climb well they are a bit hefty at a claimed 31lbs. Yet I have looked at other bikes such as the Cube super stereo race 140 and whilst they are a claimed 28/29 lbs no one seems to mention there weight? I'm not the smallest built chap and depending on hard I'm training fluctuate between 92 and 100 kgs so am I really going to notice the odd pound or two??? And the kit on the AM 29 ltd edition is top notch to boot!
