If and when I get a mountain bike, I am not going to sweat weight too much. If I want light and fast, I will go ride my road bike...

Lets see if you still feel that way halfway up a LONG, STEEP grade. ;)

I do, its a challenge esp technical uphills. But I suck at climbing and it doesn't help my bike weighs a ton.

On my recent road rides, hills have been destroying me. I finally learned that I climb much better out of the seat in a higher gear. Spinning the granny just wipes me out...

Same here.

That's why my road bike is only a 14 speed. (2x7)
