I realized that with everyone posting weights of components that our scales are not calibrated. In other words, if I weigh my stem on my scale I might come up with 180 grams. If I weight the same part on another scale it might come back 160 grams. Nothing wrong with either scale but we cannot compare component weights this way because mines will always report parts as weighing more than on the second scale. This may be relevant to me on my own bike but on the Internet, where we can compare components bought by different people around the world, it does make a difference. The problem is that we need to find something that people can compare weights to. In the USA we can weigh ten quarters or average the weight of ten cans or Coca-cola or something. What do you folks think?
