Why? Is this gonna be one of those threads where weight weenies get bashed? Believe it or not, there are actually people that understand that the light weight more expensive bits aren't gonna improve their performance. They just like the technical exercise of lightening the bike and/or appreciate the ingenuity/craftsmanship in some of the lightweight stuff.

Interesting. So what is a good reason for getting WW stuff, and what is an excuse? When I bought some of my stuff, I didn't see the sign saying I should have a good reason.SDizzle said:Thanks for posting this thread: my biggest question about WWs has always been the rider to bike ratio... I've heard all sorts of excuses about "it's a hobby" and "I've got the money - why not?" But it all seems like hooey when you're fat.
