The tire itself may be heavier but the goop you put in your tubeless is less weight than a tube, so you'll probably be gaining less weight than you'd imagine.

Well I don't know about the best in the world, but Folsom CA has over 50 miles of paved bike trails - many more unpaved. I moved here specifically for those trails, which I enjoy daily.

Yes, mostly stop signs and speed limits.

I don't like to loose whatever momentum I've gathered for a stop sign (when no one's coming), and 15mph is too slow on the bike path, so I speed.

Hit a deer on the way to work.

It was pre-dawn on a bike path, I was probably going 15-20 before I saw the deer. I had a chance to slow down but we still collided. It was a young buck. I did not fall off the bike, no visible...

Road bike (love it, my go to ride and daily commuter)
Belt drive (crappy weather commuter)
MB (ride it to the gym or if I go off road)

Second on reporting the incident to animal control. If it's a repeat offender they will (hopefully) take action.
