    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.
