    Seems like an easy choice, until 3:00 in the afternoon comes around and I'm hungry :D

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

    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. :lol:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
