My '95 Ibis Mojo made it to 18.1 BITD...

I don't have a picture of it with the Tune stuff on..., but here's one of the bike just before I did the modifications

Modification BITD:
Tune MIG75R + MAG170 laced on Mavic sub 400g rims (603g Front, 701g Back)
Tune Sticky Craze brakes with Scott brakepads

Perhaps I can find the complete spec list of how it was back than..

This is what it looks now: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=73428
Still under 22 though.. 21.something, I believe...

No pics here, but my '93 Yo Eddy was 21.5 with a slightly lighter build than I have on it now.

(Although it's currently not...) My MB-1 could probably be brought under 22lb with lighter tyres, shortening of the seat pillar & a Flite...

My Avanti K.I.S.S. 26 is 21lb on the nose. Could lose nearly a poundin tyres too!

Well if 22lb without gears is wanted, that easier. can do it without seat or grips as well, that's a bit more off. Why bother with a chain and the cogs in fact, just point it down hill or scoot with you're legs ;)

I know it wasn't stipulated :roll:
