UCI's 6.8kg (14.99lb) weight limit represents gross negligence & exposes the UCI in an unfavorable manner making certain their inability to be fair and honest in it's business. -Compromises their credibility!

This disgrace implicates how the UCI is influenced by bike manufacturers etc (rather than being influenced by science), which further effects cyclists negatively worldwide.

6.8kg (14.99lb) weight limit is, in 2019, blatantly ignorant. Outdated is an understatement.

Negatives due to the UCI's negligence include but is not limited to;
*heavier disc brakes, which are further implicated with safety issues.
*heavier wider tires & rims
*heavier carbon deep dish rims
*use of power meter

Outdated?
This from 2011 as just one example:

"Analysis: Eliminating the UCI bike weight limit is overdue"

Pressure should be applied to bring the current weight limit to a SWIFT reality check.
