    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.

    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 :thumbsup:

    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 :D

    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:

    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.

    Niner EMD around 27lbs.

    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...

    Why don't you lot post up how much you weigh along with the gear you are carrying as well, this would be more logical or funny :D

    My bone stock C-Dale Flash 2 - 25lbs. 7oz with candies.
    Will be going tubeless over the weekend so can knock off a little more soon.

    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.
