hey, im just wondering why do they have to make frames so freggin heavy, like i dont see why you cant make them smaller and lighter its not like when u do a 5 foot drop ur gonna land on the frame, ur landing on the cranks and axle no load or force is even on the frame? they cant just be a thin aluminum rod i know but could u not make them atleast somewhat lighter like my summit 20" the frame weighs a ton…

just curious


You could switch to a KH frame, thay are about a pound lighter. You could also switch to something like a Yuni/N2 frame, they are much lighter, but they also have a smaller diameter bearing size; so you’ll need new bearings as well.

I too have a Summit, and I wish it was lighter. But for the cost, I’m not complaining too much.
