    7 ouces is roughly 200 grams. If you're going to be spending that much money for that little weight saving you better have a DH frame that's worthy of the 'upgrade'.

    Not worth it.

    Save the weight by buying a lighter handlebar and stem.

    i heard that all the pros are spraying their rotors with teflon spray so they can hit corners faster, you could try that, failing that use some fork oil.

    I can't believe how bent people get over some obviously light hearted (intended to provoke) questions.

    I know these kids and benign is the best word I can think of to describe them. My advice is don't take them too seriously because they will just get a rise out of you. And once that happens they win and it perpetuates the cycle. If you think they are asking a dumb question just simply don't reply and then they will get bored and leave you alone.

    Oliver, Zach, my advice to you is less internet and more bikey.

    I have Ti-bolts on my new 2005 v10. Actually I didn't know I had them before some1 told me that they where Ti. 7 ounces from your wheels will improve your riding much more than new bolts. I hope you where just joking cause that's redicalous spending over 300 on bolts...
