Go on, do it!

Have you ever looked at the numbers to calculate just how light you could in theory go with that bike?

SAve no weight with carbon rings. Just 'bling' it more. At a good guess could get the Trimble down to 14lb 8oz with 'proper' off road boots or 13lb 8oz with Maxis 285 boots.

I'm happy to stop at 15lb 4oz and so is the bank :lol:
