    That's the way I see it too. Bike weight isn't a huge factor for me until I lose about 20 more pounds.

    But if you have a super light bike you can impress all your friends who ask about it on the road rides and on the golf course

    Don't get me wrong, I would love a 20lb carbon fiber race machine with at least 1 x 10 gearing, but I'm too poor

    My cheapo Diamondback Overdrive weighs 34.5lbs according to me holding it on my scale (only reads 1/2 lb increments)

    Well, it seems to be about 5lbs above average, but since it will be cheaper for me to drop another 5lbs off my ass vs the bike, I guess I will just diet.

    My Niner EMD9 is a hair over 26lbs. Would really need to drop some coin / shop around to get it a whole lot lighter than that.

    24 lbs without me (size small cause my legs are short) I am surprised at some of the weights folks are giving.

    Pretty much stock 2010 Rockhopper Expert 29er is 31 lbs. It was up to 33lbs with the heavy duty tubes but I put standard tubes back in with some Stans in them. 2 lbs in the wheels is noticable for sure!

    My 2011 Rockhopper Pro 29er weights 27.2 lbs. The only real upgrades have been swapping to WTB Stryker wheels and going tubeless, which dropped 2.5lbs of rolling mass off the weight of the bike!

    That fork isn't stock, looks like Rock Shox.

    I have the same bike. Mine is 27.6lbs as pictured here:


    Mod list:

    Tubeless w/ Ardents
    Fizik Aliante Gamma Kium Xm saddle
    Thompson Elite set back seat post
    Marzocchi Micro Ti 29er set at 140mm
    Shimano M540 pedals
    Sram X9 RD
    Removed big ring and replaced with Raceface aluminum bash-guard

    I have heavier tires, probably fork, and pedals. The stock Suntour fork is a boat anchor. The rest of the stock setup is very respectable weight wise. Although I was told the stock BB is quite heavy.

    I have upgraded to tubeless tires, and changed the front suspension to the RockShox Reba RTL, only 2 grams hevier then the RockShox SID, lost almost three pounds over the stock forks.

    Nice Bike. In November I am planning on upgrading the crankset to Truvativ X.9 with the GXP BB, hopefully drop a little more weight.

    Fully rigid Niner MCR comes in around 25 pounds, but I definitely agree less beer would be more conducive to me getting faster than the money it would take to lighten the bike...

    A bit over 24lbs. I chose a more durable build though, it could be brought down to the 21 or less range. See my signature for specs.

    I also have a Karate Monkey SS that is in the 29lb range i think, I don't know if i have ever officially weighed it.

    2011 Trek Cobia - 21 inch

    Trek Cobia started out at 29.5 Lbs on my scale. Dropped 2.7 Lbs so far for a final weight of 26.8.

    The biggest shocker was the rear cassette. This thing was a brick at 452 g. An SRAM 990 brought that down to 303 g for a 0.33 Lb drop on just the cassette.

    It says Bomber on it. Tells me it's a Marzocchi Bomber...not a RS ;-)


    GT Karakoram now at 32lbs. I dropped my underseat pack and bottle/holder, handler bar extensions, computer...etc and got it down to 29lbs. There was no noticeable difference. I have no problems keeping up with my seasoned Uncle and his 23lb Titanium set-up.
    Could I benefit from a lighter bike, sure, but I dont ride for 10hrs on end to worry about longtime fatigue, so I'll keep my $2k rather than spending it where I dont need to.
    No weight weenie here. Go take a good ole steamin pile of poo before you go riding if you're worried about the weight.
    I think the weight saving on bikes are waaaay overrated and guys throw stupid money at them for no reason. Unless your in races, keep your money in your pocket.

    I was able to put my Hardrock 29 disc sport on a pretty strict diet and was able to get down to right about 31lbs from 35lbs the day it came out of the LBS.

    Good info. I'd like to change out my crank set and cassette in the future. Lot of weight with that solid crank as well.

    My weight of 30 included my cyclometer, underseat tool pouch with spare tube, multi, and co2, and bottle cage.

    Just over 20lbs at the moment. Should be well under 20 when the new stem, seatpost and tires arrive.

    29lbs of course!

    With my steel frame, I've gotten my SS up to 29lbs. (Isn't that what a 29er should weigh anyway?!) jk,jk...

    OK, I had a table on here as an image but it did not show up. I will try again with text. Also, I ended up taking my bike to the LBS and they weighed it for me so now I hopefully have a more accurate weight.

    My Cobia weighs in at 30.93 Lbs at the Local Bike Store on a digital bike scale (this replaces my bathroom scale measurement of 29.5)

    The weight of 30.93 includes a wireless Trek Speedometer and one bottle cage installed. I swapped out some parts and brought the weight down to 28.14 (this is higher than the 26.8 I noted above because of the bathroom scale error).

    Here are the changes I made. (weights in grams from good scale)
    New Part weight weight of old cobia part
    RXL seat and RXL seat post 414 736
    Frnt RL Rim 905 1078
    Front Quick Release 36 82
    Front XT Brake setup (all parts) 290 334
    Grips (Ergon with extender) 251 93 (going up here)
    Rear RL Rim 1129 1309
    Rear Quick Release 38 88
    SRAM 990 Cassette 303 452
    Rear Avid Rotor and Bolts 138 144
    Pedals (Kona LG) 543 415 (going up again)
    XT 760 Crank w/3 rings 763 952
    Hollowtech II bottom bracket 89 289
    Frnt XT derailer 166 150
    rear XT derailer 224 252
    rear XT Brake setup (all parts) 301 340
    Race XXX lite carbon handlebar 184 269
    FSA stem 120mm 6 deg 162 192
    XT shifter set R/L 250 254
    Front Avid G3 rotor and bolts 115 142

    Total difference in Lbs is 2.79 for a final weight of 28.14 Lbs.

    Changing my pedals and hand grips back would help bring this under 27.5.

    Hope this helps anyone looking to upgrade for weight purposes. I upgraded because I had the parts on a 26 inch mountain bike and just swapped them over because I had them.

    Should also ask to post rider weights, super lightweight stuff is cool, but not for heavy and/or strong riders. Light weight is good to a point.

    Moto Ti 29er weight

    Out of the box w/Shimano clips added, it weighed out a 23.5 lbs. Just changed out the Kenda Small Block 8's for Geax Gato front and Sagaro rear, so I'm guessing I'm closer to 24 lbs now.

    My Yelli Screamy comes in at a touch under 27lbs. I think the bike could really do with a reverb and maybe some longer fork (120/130mm) so it'll probably be closer to 28lbs. Solid build though and can certainly handle some abuse.

    Pair of Vassagos


    When I still had it it was a hair over 25 pounds (via the bathroom scale,which proved to be fairly accurate over a 2 year period).


    Just under 28 pounds (same method as above).

    Trek Stache 8ish. It's similar in build to the 8, but with some burlier parts in key places. 31.5 pounds and its perfect. I've got no plans to reduce that. I weigh 265 pounds and like technical aggressive riding, if I build my bikes much lighter I start breaking stuff.

    Eh, you could drop plenty of weight with some Enve wheels, bar, and stem, but probably not worth it to you.

    Definitely sturdier than the current set up, though.

    I know carbon is pretty bomb proof, but when I was buying the bar and stem I talked to a couple of my sales reps and got the same answer, unless I planned to replace the bar every time I crashed that I should stick with aluminum.

    Fisher Rig, 31 lbs. geared. Mechanical brakes and some portly tires fatten it up.

    That's not a Specialized frame. Looks like a Niner.

    What's with the rebranding?

    Or is it a 2014 SW Stumpjumper that you are giving us a sneak peak?

    Oops!

    I only researched the last 3 model years and as the frame shape has changed after 2010, I jumped to conclusions. It is a 2010 SJ HT. My bad.

    My 2010 29er Disc is a little over 33lbs, it is a 23" though. The crazy thing is my wife's 17.5" Gary Fisher Tarpon is almost 32lbs.

    I've got a 2011 15" Motobecane Fantom 29er Comp. Upgrades/changes: Rockshox Recon Gold Air fork, Avid BB7 brakes, Raceface 100mm stem, Shimano clipless pedals and ODI Chunky grips...almost 30 lbs on the nose. Fortunately, I only notice how heavy it is when putting it on top of my car, not when riding the singletrack

    Cane Creek 110 headset
    Rockshox Reba Gold
    Stans Crest
    Maxxis Ignitor(front) and Crossmark(back) tubeless

    Just put the new bar and brakes on and am going for a ride. Finally finished my first build and it comes in at 23.4. Took me 4 months of buying parts. Thanks to everyone who posts pics and reviews as this is what I used to help get this done!

    Thinking of some Crampon pedals in red as the final touch?

    I have a transam and my guess is about 28 pounds. Never weighed it as I know it is on the heavy side which is good because I ride the crap out of it on technical rocky chunk.

    They have been good. Tough to get tires on, but they sealed up nicely. They were a big improvement from the ones that came on the bike. I would buy them all over again.

    After some recent minor stuff, my 15.5" Stumpy EVO HT is at 22.86 (repeating of course). Major weight savings have been Niner Carbon RDO seatpost, S-Works Carbon Prowess bar, lighter weight rotors, and most signficiant, Roval Control Wheels and lighter tires (S-Works Fast Trak front and Renegade Control rear). Pedals, stem, and cassette get me to 22.5 or below. Nothing stupid, just dependable high-quality upgrades.

    See my signature..medium emd frame, 1x10, tubeless with maxxis crossmark and ignitor on the heaviest stans rims = 25.5 lbs give r take. I could run a lighter rear 11-34 casssete (SLX 380gms) and lose the heavy-ish but blingy spank royola bars (350 gms) as well as the moove torque pedals (470 gms) but they more than make up for the extra weight thanks to thier looks and bomb proof performance. I weight in around 215 so weight weenie bikes really do me no good in the longrun.

    How much does your 29er hard tail weigh?

    I have a stock 2013 Scott Scale 940 that weighs 26 lbs. I haven't really looked at what needs to be swapped or weight reduction yet. The front wheel with rotor, tube, and tire is lighter than my 2006 M4 Stumpjumper HT 26" front wheel, so I'm content for now.
