Gordo said:What can I expect an 18in. KM single speed (complete bike) to weigh? Thanks!
Thanks for the info. My local bike shop has one on order for me. Not that weight is everything, because I'm buying one regardless of weight, but I was curious. Anyway, 24lbs. aint too heavy. Mine will have v-brakes, so the weight could even be less. Thanks again.donkey said:....Claimed weight is 5.73 for the frame. I think that may be a little low.
My complete SS with discs weighed about 24.
It rides really nice, and it doesn't ride like a heavy bike in the least.
Thanks! Again, I was curious. I've read so much about how obnoxiously heavy the km is. To me, an atb around 23-25 is just fine. Over 30lbs. is heavy. I suppose many could get a ti or aluminum ss under 20lbs easy. As I mentioned in my first post, I've ordered a km ss. I've never ridden or seen one up close, but I know it will be a great bike.Fast Freddy said:When I had mine it was right at 26 lbs.... but I didn;t have the lightest stuff I could find either... Raceface Prodigy cranks (with bash ring), stem, post, Alex Rims/Xt Disc hubs, Avid Disc Brakes, WTB wire bead tires, etc... SO i bet you will be pleasantly suprised with the weight.
Hope that helps
