originally car tires were made this way, idk exactly why they stopped but i'm guessing air as a cushion was a more comfortable ride while lowering cost. but i don't think it would weigh that much, certainly more then standard tires but not enough to double the weight of the bike. and as long as you're not a huge person i don't think it would rob you of a huge deal of performance.
