Had some extra time Sunday so I weighed all the bikes in the house using a digital bathroom scale which has proven to be quite accurate to within 1/2 pound.

When you see the weights you will see why these do not belong in the "Save some weight" forum. All weights are less pedals.

Independent Fabrication Steel Deluxe (17", 23.5" TT, SID, full XT, Mavic 717 rims w/XT hubs, Python Air lite tires and Magura Louise discs): 24.5 lbs. - Frame alone weighted 4.25 lbs.

Santa Cruz Chameleon (Large w/Pike, Sun Rhyno rims with Hadley 20mm front hub, XT rear, Nevegal tires 2.5/2.35, Deore/LX drivetrain, Brooklyn Machine Works DH Saddle, E-13 Bash guard, Magura Louise FR brakes): 30.5 lbs

Giant OCR Composite 1 (Medium, all stock): 19 lbs.

Giant FCR 3 (XS, all stock): 21.5 lbs.

GT Avalanche (Circa 2000, XS, RS Pslyo, Nevegals 2.35/2.1, Thudbuster post, Avid Mechanical Discs): 28.5 lbs.

GT Zaskar (Circa 1998, Medium, RS Judy Race, Continental 2.2 tires, Avid Mech disc front, Avid Mag V-Brake rear - nothing intentionally light): 25 lbs.

GT Avalanche (Circa 1997, Medium, stock except for Magura HS33 hydraulic rim brakes and '98 Judy SL fork): 27 lbs.

Nothing too surprising except how light the Zaskar was. I built it up for my son out of some of the better parts lying around the house but light weight was not a goal. It just came out that way.

Imagine how this thread will be hijacked by the "weight weenies."

lol, I would have to say you're the weight weenie. Out of all those bikes only one weighs over 30 pounds. Not that that's a bad thing.

Ok, here I go.

Bullit (med) with 7" Rissie Trixxy (yeah I know but it's all I have), Mavic 217, king hubs/head set, Race face prodigy xc cranks, Maxxis Minion single ply and what ever cheep O tubes, XTR all the way around. 36.8 pounds

Brooklyn racelink, shiver, Mavic 317 rims, Sram 9.0 (rear only) 50.8 pounds

Ventana El Feugo - 25 even. It's got all the toys.
Interloc - Trusty steel hardtail - 23 and a couple of oz. Toys again.
Univega - Tusty beater bike - another steel hardtail - 25 and a half. Left-over parts from several other bikes. I could easily lose weight from this one if I ever really wanted to... but really don't have the need to do that to this ride.

They're all XC rides, and I'm spoiled.

Since I'm 200 pounds, can't go ahead and weight weenie 'em all the way out, but here they're durable enough for the way I ride (and then some) and they are plenty flickable when I ride 'em

JmZ

PS - Added photos of Interloc and El Feugo. No pics of the Univega hiding on the commuter.

Funny thing is I just did a road century on this damn rigid this morning, and was curious as to it's weight - 2lbs lighter than my 4" full sus Trance :yikes:

used my fairly new electronic bathroom scale to weigh these 2 bikes, so weight may not be super accurate.

These are very approximate (within a pound I suspect):

Raceline Expert Hardtail, viewable here. Not very stock at all and approx 29lb

Mongoose Teocali Super, viewable here. Mostly stock other than pedals and grips, approx 29lb. Heavy frame on that beastie.

Just weighed in mine the same way (digital bathroom scale) a few days ago.

36lbs - '05 Jamis Komodo, only stock items are cranks and stem. Keep in mind this is built for strength, used for dirt jumping & a little trail riding.

My brothers '06 Kona Howler weighs in at 38lbs, and I weigh in at a measly 127lbs :thumbsup: Yes im fully grown.

Weight weenie them out? Are you serious? My all Carbon Fuel 110 weighs more than your bikes.

For a guy that weighs 200 pounds, those are some seriously light bikes.

Don't look now, but you be a weight weenie:D

Just happened to weigh my 2002 rocky mountain element (FS) this morning. First time I've done that this year.

I emptied the saddle bag of all my "survival equipment", left bag and pump on and it came in at 26.8 pounds. I did this experiment because, last I weighed it, it came in at 28.6 pounds. What did I do to lose almost two pounds? Switched wheelset from entry-level mavics (139s) to Botranger race-lites. That's it. HOT [email protected] a good wheelset makes a difference! The thing climbs like a new animal also.
