    20.86 lbs, is this the Worlds Lightest Fatbike?

    Let me try this again...

    Well fellers it took all winter but the last tasty bit just arrived and it’s time to move onto the next project. It's 20.86 pounds with pedals, cage, and Garmin mount. Here’s a list of what’s not obvious in the picture. I can imagine (with a lot of effort) about 200 grams more coming off but don't believe with these tires that the bike ever breaks below 20 pounds. I don’t tend to run the Husker DUs on snow as the knobbies are just too small, I really like the Surly Nates which add about ½ pound to the bike but the DUs are awesone on dirt.

    It's great fun to hookup or pass the roadies on this thing. I like to joke that if you want to insult a roadie, pass them on a fatbike.


    Hed rims
    9zero7 hubs
    Xtr carbon brakes
    120 grams of Stans in “wet, sealed” tires (tires had been run for awhile, drained and then filled with 120g)
    Custom Ti rear skewer from Boldprecision.com
    Richey stem
    Easton Carbon Bar
    Mt zoom Seat collar
    Removed BB inner shell
    A few Ti bolts here and there
    Foam grips
    3T stylus seatpost

    add a couple of grams of bar end caps, for safety's sake.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Nice build!
    You might as well remove the cage, garmin mount, drain the stan's, then you'll have a sub 20 lb fatbike!

    Seriously though, nice build, like the cranks!

    Drill those rims! 1.5" holes sound right. Chain looks like it maybe trimmed. Remove the stickers. Get some Fiber Flight spokes. Aerolite pedals Cut the steerer down, lose the spacers.

    You can get sub 20, you're almost there! Right now you are too slow, sub 20 would make you faster!

    We've done a couple of light ones recently. A Salsa Beargrease carbon which just barely went over 20 pounds. That one was ridden and will be reviewed on Cyclingnews soon.

    We've also finished up a Lamere which went under 19 pounds without pedals.

    Meh, all this weight weenie stuff was cool at one time, now if you seen one you've seen em all. Don't get me wrong they are cool bikes but with the all carbon frames weighing about the same and there is only a handful of fat specific light parts they all start to look the about the same.
    And I love beer!!

    Yeah, I'll never get the removing the pedals to weigh thing. It's not a complete bike without pedals, right? So weigh as a complete bike. Anyway... that thing looks nice. I hope it gets ridden and not just weighed like a pageant queen

    The bike has pedals on it.

    I prefer bikes weights without pedals.

    That is a very nice looking bike.

    Congrats.

    Ha, you are right. They are very sneaky pedals if you aren't looking close.

    No, I was referring to the last comment by Woz.

    You can't ride a bike without pedals.....

    How about I go home and weigh my fatty without wheels? Man it'll be light! Haha

    Actually to be fair, you should weigh the shoes too. You can't go far on clipless pedals without the shoes...

    Might as well add rider weight too! Can't ride without a rider.

    With me being a newb in fatbiking I wonder how doest the lack of weight affect the ride in snow?

    When yesterday's storm's tracks freeze and the trail becomes bumpy does the ride on a 20lb fatbike suffer? Does the bike get thrown around more?

    The only negative I can see is going to be tires and rims that aren't wide enough for conditions. If it's softer, you're going to have to go wider or suffer the frustration of narrower stuff. The "ride" is all about the tires, rims and pressure.
