So much for the so-called weight savings. Although to be fair, I don't know if Lambert billed them as lighter. Maybe they had other reasons.

I laughed one day when my son was young and his grandparents got him an aluminum mountain bike for Christmas. It weighed what two of my road bikes weigh together. The materials are only part of the equation.
