When I was sourcing the parts I was purely looking from a weight perspective. Now it's finished I need to change the tyres as you say they're only good for the road at the moment. I should have weighed each part before fitting but didn't so don't know what the big differences would be. Probably the loss of gears is the main one.
Never seen a bike rack for a motorbike before, that's cool.
Dont get me wrong, I think its AMAZING that its so light but the tyres just dont fit the feel of the bike. Other than the tyres the bike is perfect, look at the wheel skewers....they look like they weigh nothing! 13 lbs is insane light, and thats SUPER impressive to me.
