Seems like everybody's going for less weight, anyone using a 30+ lbs bike?
Pics would be nice.

My bander comes in right at 30.10lbs


Weight isn't soo much an issue for me, just that my upgrades always seem to be light. I just get what I like.

My last Rigid/SS was 30.5lbs

My upcoming rigid/SS build will probably just under 30lbs.

I haven't weighed it, but I'm guessing 33 lb. My bikes tend to get heavier as I replace parts, almost never lighter. The roadie stem in the picture has been replaced with a proper Thomson X4, and the wimpy Geax rear tire with a Stout (soon to be Ardent 2.4, tubeless).

30? Pffft!

I think this one's more like 40. If I had some assistance I could heft it onto the scale and, hopefully, read the result before the rafters collapsed...

Clever...

Clever little seatpost setup. Funny though, I wouldn't think you would want to run a seatpost of that clamp style seeing as a big enough hit to the nose will rock that seat to the top tube. It is nice though that they allow that much flexibility in regards to offset/rotation.

If I recall correctly the post in those pictures was used to get the saddle high enough to actually be able to pedal that beast uphill!

Who says DH bikes are shuttle only?!?

Not under Mikesee they're not! :thumbsup: :D
