    My 2012 Ricci old #12 triple HT weighs 8062 grams, or 17.8lbs, and I could easily make it two or three pounds lighter, but I like it just the way it is. She's really stout. Yeah, you won't see very many HT triples with a suspension fork built as well and as light as this bike. I'll post a picture of it next Wednesday when I get my rims back from being serviced.

    wheelset and fork did most of the weight savings. Mine was 27.5 lbs stock (Cause it's an XL) so i've cut about 4 lb.

    it's a '12 Reba RLT and '11 Mavic C29ssmax
    carbon bar and seatpost and a RXL stem, and full XT 1x10 (180mm cranks)
    that's about it besides a Fizik saddle (found a stock cannondale scalpel saddle for cheap)

    only thing really stock on the bike are the brakes.

    Trek X-caliber

    2012 frame, 19"
    2009 Fox F29 80 RL
    2009 X7/X9 drivetrain
    Shimano no-groupset crank
    Juicy 3's
    Rhythm 29er wheels set up tubeless with Speshy Captain tires
    Bonty cockpit
    Selle Italia Flite Gel saddle
    And bottle cages, blinky lights, computer mount, etc

    Right at 27 lbs. Could shed about 1.5 lbs with better wheels and tires, and another half pound getting rid of that boat anchor crank. All in all, I don't think that's too bad. Far cry from my 17 lb Cervelo though lol.

    Be careful when using a fish scale, things tend to look bigger and weigh more....
    and as time passes, the stories about the bikes weight will be heavier and heavier and it will end up having 36er tires...

    trek weight. no scale at LBS

    I have a Trek Superstore near me and I was thinking about the HiFi Pro, 2011, ON SALE. I asked the shop if we could weigh it and they said that they didn't have a scale! Then the guy tells me it's close to 25 lbs. I couldn't believe they didn't have a scale, weight has to come up in most high-end purchases right? I offered to leave my credit card and go find a place to weigh it and they weren't too excited about it. Anyway, has anybody weighed a 2011 Trek HiFi Pro? I'm freakishly tall so I'll ride the 23", but any size weight will help.

    So my question is this.

    With all this talk of weight. How much of a difference does it make if you lose 5 lbs in bike weight. Say even 8 lbs in bike weight?

    Search the internet and you'll find the time shaved off mainly in climbs on road races due to decrease in weight. I haven't really seen many tests with mountain bikes, but the longer the race or more hills involved I bet the concept still translates.

    Weight it a money pit if you aren't getting paid to ride. My opinion. If you ride for the health benefits/fun then chasing a lighter bike build is more hobby than utility.

    ok. my MTB weighs thirty pounds. my GT 'cross probably weighs twenty four and a half with the near-mountain bike size tires on it which i suppose makes it a twenty eight and a halfer.

    guess which bike is waaaay faster climbing say, the coastal trail in the marin headlands?

    If you ride all flats, it won't make a huge difference, but it will be noticeable (in a good way).

    If you climb a lot it will make a massive difference. Climbing is all about power to weight ratio, and 5-8 pounds is a lot of weight.

    Yeah that's what I figured and let me thank you for a thought out answer to the question.

    So my steel Jamis Dragon sport probably weighs about 28 to 29 lbs or so. I did put Stans Arches on it which are much lighter than the boat anchor All Mountain Speed Discs. The fork is still heavy--coil and oil baby. Which if I upgrade anything that will be the next thing.

    Anyone have any numeric data? I know that there are other things to consider. FS vs HT vs RIGID , conditions as well as a list of other variables.

    1- The type of terrain where you ride should be considered before you go weight WW and get components that can handle the terrain.
    2- Your frame should be around 5lb 3-5oz., meaning 25lb- 26lb is an obtainable goal but as a what cost. It all boils down to how much $$$ you want to invest.

    Definitely not going full WW. I could probably drop 1.5 to 2 lbs with a Reba vs the 5.5lb Tora that is on there now.

    Thanks for the estimate on the frame weight. I posed the question in the Jamis forum but never got a reply. Since it is Reynolds 520 vs the 853 (Dragon pro) it is going to be heavier. Oh well. I will just go faster downhill.

    I was wondering how much faster my 4900 would be if I bought expensive parts and lowered the weight by 8lb.

    I got my friend Matt, who weighs 8 lb less than me, to try it and it went uphill a lot faster than when I rode it, although not so much faster on the downhill section.

    I'm convinced, so I just put in my order for a boatload of carbon.

    Please share how you got the spearfish to that weight and a pic would be cool.

    My Highball comes in at 21lbs almost exactly, gears, forks, discs (and a whole bunch of ti bolts and a few weight weenie touches scattered all over it!)

    More photos & build spec on my blog HERE

    I'm happy it was well worth the effort to shave the weight, if feels fast!

    Air9 without pedals. I am going to be changing a few parts on the current setup, so it will probably be a bit heavier than than its current weight

    Motobecane Fantom hardtail - still in parts, but in *theory* it should come in just under 20#
    Part of that will depend on which wheels I end up with - Mavic or Crankbros.

    I love the look of the Cranks bros wheels seem to be stronger than previously (cobalt 3), Mavics good weight too but don't look as good....have you seen an reviews for Cranks yet?

    Seems mixed so far. One of the good guys at my LBS just bought some, so I'm waiting to see how badly he destroys them

    No just for Weight weenies like me. All kidding aside a light weight bike is more fun to ride, they are just easier to throw around. They start and stop easier, climb easier stuff like that. Will it make a big difference or make you any faster? Not anything you will notice unless you spend a ton of money and then it is still not much.

    Go ride a heavy bike, be happy and don't worry about it.

    Exactly
    It's a pretty large cost difference to shave more than a bit of weight off a part - and unless you really notice it (wheels), it's probably not worth it to most people.

    I try to save weight first on anything that spins (like wheels), then if I feel up to it, I'll go after the other stuff. Stuff like seat weight I really don't worry about

    If you are over 10% body fat then you should worry more about dropping weight off of yourself instead of dropping weight off of your bike

    Salsa lists the weight of the medium Spearfish 1 (top of the line) as 26.4 lbs without pedals. Looking at the components on the stock build, it would be difficult to shave off 4 pounds. I suspect the spearfish owner got the weight via the bathroom scale method, or perhaps transposed the numbers. It's easy to imagine a 25.2 lb Spearfish. Still a very light FS complete bike.

    Yeah seems like 25lb is possible maybe even 24.5 but sub 23 unlikely.

    In the Salsa forum there is a weight thread on the 'fish and most are 26-27

    Wow 13.5 kg = 29.7 lbs, What did you upgrade? I rented a 19" Rumblefish Elite today and it weighed in at 32lbs stock. What I could not believe was that the stock wheel set - weighed a whooping 5 kg = 11 lbs, as they were Rims/Tires/Tubes.
    So, if no one needed wheels, what an awesome 21lb bike.. lol. I was the first one to ride it, 4 leg burning trail hours, I was hooked. Buying it Monday... smile.
    night riding - it's an adiction

    Your best step will be going to Carbon Rims and going tubeless...

    My last upgrade will be chinese carbon rims with novatec d711 hubs and dt swiss revo spokes what do you think about this setup?

    I'm may not be the one to ask about carbon forks...If your riding in smooth terrain, I guess it's good. But I'm 50, and at at my age, I look for a little more comfort. I'm also biased to Lefty front shock ... There are some Rock Shox SID front forks that are extremely light, but it may be at the expense of front fork rigidity. I would get a LEFTY shock, but like I said I'm biased to the shock. IMHO they work better than any other shock and lighter also.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Just had my new Niner build delivered today...a bit disappointed.

    Niner Jet 9 size XL
    Stan's Arch front and rear
    Maxxis Aspen and crossmark tubeless
    XO 2x10 build
    Manitou tower pro 100mm w/15mm thru
    Easton carbon monkeylite XC lo rise
    WTB wolverine saddle
    Thompson seat post and stem

    Just shy of 30lbs

    Have raced an old 26" FS Fisher size LG for years and it was 28.25 so not a huge jump up going to a size bigger on a bigger bike, but the Niner is spec'd out much nicer than the Fisher was. Was very surprised at 29+ lbs.

    My medium Niner Jet 9 alloy frame weighed in at 6.5#. Niner SRAM X7 Complete Bike came in at just around 28# Shimano SPD-540 pedals.

    What hubs did you go with?
