Probably my Specialized FSR Comp dualie mt. bike. It replaced a ProFlex that weighed 25 lbs.

The Specialized weighs probably 30 'ish. As well it has a low bottom bracket that makes the pedals hit roots and stumps. Really annoying. Then I made the mistake of replacing the wheels, shifters and brakes with a deal from Jenson for beefier wheels, Shimano mt. bike shifters that function like STI - I.E brake levers that move up and down to shift, which I actually like. It's the disc brakes that came with it that sucks. Never ending squealing. Went to metal pads and a few months and noisy again. Take off the rotors and clean all, no go. PITA.

I hardly ride this bike, even though it has nice handling for tight and twisty ST. I end up riding my 25 year old Steel Fuji most of the time as it's 6 or so lbs lighter.
