Hi,

I recently bought a Montague Paratrooper. The bike weights around 31-32 pounds. I know the bike uses standard mountain bike components so they can be changed. What bike parts can be changed on this bike to make it weigh less? I don't like the suspension fork so will be replacing that with a rigid fork. Is carbon fibre good? Will it make it weigh less? If anyone has a Montague, could you please help me on which parts I can change to make the bike lighter.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
