My USDs weigh more than the stockers... I weighed them both. Dont use weight loss as a motive to swap forks...

I got into this trap when I used to ride high end mountain bikes. I spent over five grand on one chasing ounces. Once I got it down to "stupid light", I was afraid to ride it for fear I would tear something up! Advice? Step away from the scale!

Thumpn, I have seen pics of your very trick L.....you sure you're reformed???

Edit: The gist of this seems to be choosing parts carefully and / or leaving things off. Not much to actually spend on for weight savings by itself except the battery.

CRFX Showa TC USDs are 20.03 lbs. Don't know the stockers. Agree on the motives.
