How can I lighten up my bike?

Lighter Wheels

Your bike can stand to lose a little weight. There are many cycling instances in which being lighter is better. One place you can drop a bit of weight is in your bicycle wheels. If you have some funds, you can trade in your conventional wheel set for a lightweight one that might have just a very few spokes (some even have three or four aerodynamic, bladed spokes).

*Be careful, if your wheels are too light can hinder your momentum.

I bought some hookworm tires. They are very light when you do free-style.
