Though the performance benefits!

When I'd get down to 149 I used to be like whoah this is it. I'm sure if I wanted to suffer for it I could hit 130. As it is w/kg I'm way better lighter through every power bucket, and many I'm just flat out putting out more power. Not to say lighter equates to more power, but I'm fueling healthier and am fitter.
