   Vlad All other things will never be equal. If weight ( and it is the wrong goal) is the goal than one would put on lighter components You never could get equals to compare. I bet your ten pound over weight at least. So perhaps lose that 1st. Than worry about bicycle weight second. The same applies to me. Than there is non reciprocating weigh versus reciprocating weight to consider. I think we tend to think incorrectly if something has weight less somehow it is better and faster. Check the motor first. Mine is failing a bit. Charles Nighbor Walnut Creek, CA
