    Its kinda hard to find weights for those bikes for a number of reasons...your best bet is to go to the dealer and have them hang it on the scales right there in the shop...I ask the shop i bought mine from and they were glad to see the weight for me...

    The weights are going to be very close. The Trek 6500 lists MSRP at $1150 so it has a fairly steep discount to the Rock Hopper. If the 6500 has a decent fit then I think its an easy choice. My guess is the two bikes probably come in at around 30 pounds. Performance bike has the GT Zaskar Elite at $1,000 and its probably a little lighter maybe 28 pounds.
