    Why do riders want heavier bikes on purpose? OK, blackfrancois will eventually have me making an offer on one his vintage restorations... he does beautiful work! But only for the interest/curiosity level of riding steel and downtube. And again, he does amazing work. For an everyday ride where you go after PRs and train hard and push yourself... Why would you want a heavy bike when you can have a light one? Cycling is, in many ways, about climbing. Why would anyone want to drag a 25lb bike up a hill when they could pedal a 16lb bike instead? Weight matters. How much it matters is a personal thing, but it matters and it matters a lot.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Oh no you donít! You use surgically precise applications of lube thinned by extra OMS!
