    Show me your = 25 LB 80mm rim fat bike.

    Please. In the interest of saving money I am trying to live vicariously.

    I have a Salsa Mukluk 3 Large I could probably get it down to 26-27 lbs relatively easy from what I've heard. The next 1-2 not sure. Debating weather or not to mess with it or go a different route for next winter.

    Thanks in advance for entertaining my fat fantasies!

    Edit: Oh yeah and it has to have 80 mm rims.

    Mine was a hair over 26 with dtswiss rims and tubeless fatbnimbles.
    The drivetrain is xt, I think with a fancier cassette and stuff it could get down to 25ish no prob.

    I say just upgrade what you have until it makes you smile again. I rode my original Fatback until a month ago. It started life in 2009 at 35 lbs and I slowly upgraded it until it was 26 lbs before it was limited in what I could do with it. I didn't like it any less than my new bike, I actually still have it around to bash on and use as a loaner bike after I get a small crack repaired.

    Yeah, but I wouldn't ride a bike with that much exposed seatpost. You need at least a size bigger IMO.

    Those tires are ridiculous light, that is probably a big part of it. 19 does seem almost unobtainable for a reliable fat bike though, but I've been wrong plenty of times before.

    Wow it must be tough to know it all. Why the **** would I lie about what my bike weighs? The dude asked for pictures of bikes under 25 lbs, so I helped him. Maybe you should try contributing something valuable to his thread.

    Because my equally spec'd bike is significantly north of that.

    (This pic shows it with x9's, because the nextSL cranks that are currently on it were backordered)

    Now kindly, gfys.

    ^Nerd fight!

    Chippertheripper might not have a bone in this fight, no carbon wheels, not XX1, no carbon rails on saddle. I wouldn't call your bike "equally spec'd". Not dissing, just say'n.

    No cocky here thanks. I could care less what my bike, or anyone else's bike, weighs. I build my bikes how I want them and everyone else is free to do the same.

    But to please you, there you go. 20 lbs with pedals, exactly how I ride it (prior to properly cutting brake lines).

    There you go, great idea. A light bike doesn't make me fast and a heavy bike doesn't make me, or anyone else, slow. Just means we have different perspective and goals. Ride what you have and enjoy it. Just like I stated in my above posts.

    20lbs is no big deal, mine is 23, with 1250g tires, 650g rims and "heavy" turbine cranks. Everything else about mine is pretty darn lightweight and I've verified it on the scale, so I don't doubt his weight, there are options to go lower too.

    Agreed. I'm having a hard time believing the sub-20 pound thing as well.

    I guess you don't. I'm totally ok with anyone being a skeptic. I'd be happy for you to come weigh it yourself, hell I'll even let you ride it if you want. Lol. It's just a bike guys. I'm not trying to sell you anything or get your approval for my bike. Sure seems more important to several people to prove my bike isn't what I say it is, than it is for me to prove that it is. So what would ease your mind?

    I'm not arguing the bike weight cuz really I could care less. People worried about front wheels touching or scale pics themselves are silly. I can get my Park to show my bike weighing as light as I want just by putting some weight on it before turning it on, it zeros itself out on startup including said weight.

    Just over 25lbs, not the lightest components or tires. Feels like a rocket ship compared to my Boris weighing in at 38lbs.

    I see the benefit of a light bike but I seem to go in the wrong direction. Even in the picture above. That water bottle when full adds 10% to a 25 pound bike. Throw on a rear rack, a u lock, a light, another light for my head, a pump, a bike tool, etc, etc, etc,

    Pretty quick I can make a 25 pound bike 35 pounds.

    RENCRN8,

    Great bike!!! I just went to the Sarma website, the price is excellent at $1450 for wheels, frame, headset, handlebars and seat post - plus free shipping.

    Nice that it is also a 170mm rear bike.

    And the rider adds 720%... The biggest difference I notice is this bike accelerates and holds speed better than my other bike. Better hubs, lighter wheels, etc.

    Awwww, fiddlesticks. I just got a red chicklet from someone that didn't even post in this thread. Now I feel bad.

    Anyways, my heavy fat bike is about to get heavier, I have an aluminum 9z7 frame coming, as I cracked the carbon one.
    So now that I have even less to contribute here, I'll be off in the dark corners of the web looking for my tail.

    I'd LOVE to try something like that out but the distance is a killer.

    I'm just saying I have never heard of anyone breaking the 20 pound fatbike barrier before and was skeptical of people doing it. It was bound to happen and congrats for doing so. Hell, that's lighter than my titanium Merlin road bike!

    I realized the importance of having a light bike last weekend when trying out some Carver's at a Demo Days. Their carbon absolutely flew down the trail even compared to their titanium. I never thought a few pounds would make a difference but it did. It makes me now regret my purchase a few months ago. Oh well.

    My single speed Chinese fatbike weighs 12.7kg wet.

    It's got tubes and a few places I could save weight, such as lighter tyres, but function takes precedence.

    I never argued about his scale but scales in general are easily rigged. I have no reason to doubt what his bike weighs. Like stated I could care less and although it's a sweet ride it's not for me.

    Don't listen to them, that's awesome how light it is. Must be easy to throw around on the trails.

    Just for the record I said = not <. But obviously It's not a big deal. Just trying to get ideas for what is possible.

    I wouldn't care so much about a 25 lb except for my local trail is very challenging if you want to do the whole thing. Salsa had a demo there and I rode a carbon beargrease with whiskey carbon tubeless up the big hill like it was nothing.

    I may pop for some lighter 65mm or HEDs at some point, but I'm pretty happy with my build overall. As I've gotten more serious in racing, I've realized that you do have to go to some pretty extreme measures to be competitive. I'm not just talking about wheel builds or parts, but your training routine, weight lifting, nutrition, etc. My succes has been proportional to all of these put together and focusing in all these areas maximizes my chances. I could train forever, but it won't make a slick tire grip ice, I can have studded tires, but if I can't keep race exertion levels up for the required time it doesn't mean anything. Number of races and being as prepared as possible for each one in all of these areas is what has increased my success. To this extent, a light racing bike is one of the requirements. Otherwise, you may get lucky, but it means over compensating in other areas and inconsistent results IMO.

    A 30lb bike will not cause you problems if you rode the Beargrease up that hill "like it was nothing"
    There's no conditioned rider who needs a 25lb bike vs a 29lb bike (which is much easier and cost effective to attain) Below 29-30lbs you start throwing a lot of money at it for less and less real world gain.

    An aluminum bike with carbon cranks is going to be more than light enough. Now add a carbon crank if you really want to get all 'weeny' about it.
    I ride some gnarly stuff and certainly don't need a 25lb bike considering the money I'd have to throw at it to get it there.
    I can ride my Farley 7 up anything, and it's more than light enough at 28lbs (XT brakes, carbon bar) Anything I can't clear is certainly not because the bike is too heavy.

    I don't really go by weight alone but function first with weight in mind. I try to stay at a reasonable weight of under 28 pounds with no function compromises. It usually costs as much as weight weenie builds or more but its how I roll

    Hi Mortenste

    Does it still weigh that ? Assuming you've worn out your Jugg pro's now ?

    I've not been able to get Jugg pro's anywhere near the pre-production weight in the 7-800g range like your's were. Mine are 860-880g

    Hell even my JJ 4.0 liteskins were 1135 - 1170g

    I think my final weight is gonna be roughly 20.6lbs (inc pedals) without throwing a serious amount of cash ($$$$) at it . It was supposed to be a budget build but that's looong since gone LOL .
