dura-ace vs. liposuction

Postby ohexploitable » Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:52 pm

my bike has shimano sora and so i was thinking of upgrading to dura-ace to make it lighter

but i realised that i could get liposuction which doesn't cost too much more and it would probably save more weight

what do you guys think?

I have a Sora Groupset, to be frank, I think riding a SORA would make you a better rider then a Dura Ace. May be 5 yrs from now the SORA would get as light as the Dura Ace and then everyone's happy :)

Both. You can't have Dura Ace without a lipo-tuck!

Turn the bike into a fixie, consider it liposuction for the bike.

A new groupset leaves less scarring.

What about a leg amputation. Probably more weight saving there and you would also develop a good pedal technique.

get the dura-ace. the problem with liposuction is that you will just put the weight back on. dura-ace doesn't get heavier.

If you have considered lipo as an option, get lipo. LOL

Is lipo really going to reduce much weight for you? What weight/cost are we talking about? How much time off the bike to recover from the surgery?

I understand lipo usually removes less than 2kg of fat.
Most can lose that with 3-4 weeks of dieting.
It amazes me people go through the operation, rather than eat appropriately for a month.

well i'm already pretty fit and have little body fat (like 5-10% body fat)

but dura ace saves what like 500g over sora?

i figured if i were to pay for dura ace to save a measly 500g then i might as well get lipo and save more weight for almost the same price

Sweet Jesus, if you were joking around, then well played. I laughed. If you aren't joking, book in the psychologist ASAP. You can't operate your way to fat loss... Dura Ace will definitely be around longer than the operation.

Without seeing a pic, IMHO you don't need to lose weight...
There's also the ego benefit of DIY not having someone else taking weight off you...
Not to mention the performance benefit of pretty much any groupsan over Sora...

Finally, as mentioned previously, the only scarring DA will leave you with is if you muff the crankset instal. :oops:

If you get lipo and keep eating and exercising at the same rate as you do now, you will put the weight back somewhere ese.

You could get really fat knees.

And that would disguise your nicely toned VMOs.

Or - you could just take a credit card and buy a banana at your destination instead of riding around with it in your jersey pocket. That would save a few hundred grams.
