My God I can't believe how light it is. I've been so used to my old Nimbus 36er with a 10 year old tire that I assume is way heavier. This thing rides like a dream. I'm learning to use the brake and I quickly realized that it's actually when you let go of the brake that really can throw you off. This is my first time with 114mm cranks which I am liking so far.
Your new Nimbus should have a "normal' weight Nightrider tire but the Foss tube in it is quite a bit lighter then the Butyl tube.
