comment how much of a difference does bike weight make when trying to maximize the bike's top speed?
Quality is not synonymous with weight or top speed. A counterfeit Chinese carbon frame may be faster than a well made steel frame and built up to be a rugged commuter with wide puncture resistant tires and stainless steel fenders. You're probably going to pay more for lighter components, but that's not a guarantee of quality, not on its own.

comment Is it safe to mount fender stays and disc brakes on the same bolt?
head over to western bike works or bike gallery or REI and find some Planet Bike fenders that attach via rubbers straps or clips, etc, one of the local bike shops around here ( not the one that sold you those ) will be able to help.

Yeah, don't do that, and maybe stay away from the shop that tried to tell you that you could.

comment The bike Weight and Performance gain for Lightweight riders?
That saying is intended to remind clydesdales like myself that watching your diet and shedding a pound off your waist is a more practical approach to increasing speed than say, spending $200 on a carbon handlebar to shed 40 grams off of the aluminum one that came with the bike. It in no way applies to your 48kg girlfriend on a mountain bike.
