500g barrier shattered by groundbreaking new frame (helium filled)

With helium in the frame, the bike would float it would be so light Sticking out tongue

weight of air inside the frame = 4/5th of freak all

Weight saved by replacing that with helium = half a gnats pubic hair and certainly not worth the extra weight the air valve adds let alone sealing the frame
