    Up the ante son!! longer rides with more intensity will show benefits. Do you challenge yourself with climbs & distance??
    All of the trails around my town are flat and mostly paved. The hills around town have no trails and are private property. I have been trying longer distances.

    Dude, diet is about 75%. Don't know what you eat but if it's a ton of heavy unhealthy food then losing weight is tough. If you are 280, riding hard 4 times a week and watching what you eat pounds should be dropping off you
    I eat a sensible lunch and dinner everyday, and if I snack I eat popcorn or some similar snack. I have diabetes so I have to watch what I eat. Seems I can't lose any weight no matter how much I ride.

    Great idea. Keep us updated on your road bike progress. What kind of road bike do you have? You know you would have to do like a ton more than 8-9 miles at a time.
    I don't have a road bike. Yes, I know I would have to ride more than 8 or 9 miles at a time.

    Kona, one thing I don't understand. Why do you have to hang up mtn biking in order to take up road biking? You were going to hang up mtn. biking to take up swimming a few months ago. You can do it all man
    I would have to hang up mountain biking because I would need to sell the mountain bike to buy a road bike or do a trade. I can't afford a new road bike. I was looking at swimming a few months back,. turned out to be a bit expensive.

    You don't necessarily have to do lots of miles on a road bike. Depends on the ride and how hard you push it. I do rides less than 10 miles that are butt kickers

    Kona, popcorn provides no nutritional value. Read up on nutrition and figure out a better diet plan.

    Popcorn is low carb. That's what counts as a diabetic. And I love popcorn.

    Despite the fact that it one of the worst possible things you could choose to eat. Choices, you make them, you can die by them.

    Actually popcorn is more better for you than other snacks such as a bag of potato chips, or sweets. Popcorn is high in fiber and low carb. Besides, I don't have a snack everyday.

    That's all junk food. Stuff that you should not be eating if you want to lose weight.

    You may feel like you're not eating much in quantity but the items that you are eating is probably not helping you lose weight and could actually be making you gain weight.

    Seriously.

    Look at your diet rather than your bike parts

    I hate to keep at you but I really want you to not get worse and it seems like there's so much more you can do. It's going to be hard and painful and you just need to stay focused and not quit.

    Seriously guys? I'm saying popcorn is a better choice to snack on than other snack foods. So you are saying to quit snacking all together? I have a dietician, she assures me that popcorn is OK, and a far better choice than other snack foods. You all must be thinking of that movie popcorn. Besides I fail to see how eating a small bag of popcorn once or twice a week is preventing me from losing weight especially when I am riding 4 to 5 days a week. :/

    This is definitely one of the more weirdly derailed threads lol

    Oh yeah. I just built a trek liquid and its now around 27lbs which isn't bad cause stock it should have been like 33 from what I was reading. And yes, bike weight matters, regardless of rider weight. Add 4lbs to your front end and see how different it is. When I'm jumping something, the lighter my bike is, the more I can maneuver it in the air. The higher I can jump, the less energy it takes, etc. I don't know anything about popcorn, it gets stuck in my teeth so I don't eat it, but i do mtb... So whatever haha

    My blur lt with fox vanilla rc coil shock is 30lbs.

    Actually popcorn can be quit a healthy snack, depending on how it's made. Microwave popcorn or movie popcorn no. Bags of kernels made in an air popper, yes it can be considered a healthy snack.

    Because...since you have got to eat anyway...choosing to eat a healthy diet (as opposed to the crap that most Americans eat), is not really all that expensive. I do it. And I do it cheaply.

    You should give it a try. Take a walk through the produce section of your supermarket sometime and compare the prices of fresh nutritious, relatively low calorie stuff to that of processed foods.. You might be surprised.
    First of all, no. Not a joke. Second of all, I don't need to "try" it as, thats how I live. You said "healthy", not vegetarian. Eating lean meats and fruits and veggies is much more expensive than eating junk food, pastas, and starches (which also usually keep better).

Eat real food, vegetables, fruit, nuts, lean meat. Take the food pyramid and turn it upside down. I've seen your Strava segment, you do not go hard enough, long enough to call it effective. It's not supposed to be easy, all the best achievements come from hard work and sacrifice. You're selling yourself short, looking for work arounds like a lighter bike or easier like a road bike. Sorry, it doesn't work like that. Get out and go hard til you cant, then do it again. Then tomorrow, do it again and take some pride in the fact that you went hard even when it hurt. All that stands between you and success is hard work, fear and common sense. Go get some success.

    My guess is closer to the hour usually? Your body doesn't even begin to burn fat in the first hour.

    I'm overweight myself but I'm not making excuses. If you can't loose weight you are taking in more fuel (food) than you are burning, it's just that simple. There is no magic involved. You either have to cut your fuel intake or increase the work your body is doing so that you burn up more. Being fat is not a disease, it is a lifestyle choice.

    I think you missed the point. I want a lighter bike because the one I am riding feels like moving lead when I ride, even on a good day. I ride to enjoy the ride and get rid of stress and anger, not to make my heart explode just by pedaling a mile due to bike weight. I eat sensibly, and ride when I can.

    If you reduce bike weight by 3 pounds you will have reduced the total weight of bike and rider less than 1%. How is that by any measure you care to use going to help? If on the other hand you lost 140 pounds, your total bike and rider weight would be reduced by about 48%. That would do wonders for power to weight ratio, watts per kg. Its false logic to expect any measurable gain by reducing bike weight when you really should reduce body weight by 50% or even more. Hard words to hear but its the truth and is inescapable.

    Listen to the man. You feel like peddling lead because you weigh 280lb. The weight of the bike has nothing to do with it!

    Yeah whatever. All I know is it feels better and easier to ride a 26 pound bike as opposed to riding the 33 pound beast I have now. Not to mention I have more fun and ride longer.

    My hardtail is 34.2 pounds before a GoPro, water bottle, pack and 180 lbs of me. I definitely have to work harder but that's good with me. Stronger legs and lungs. Great workout overall.

    My XC bike for years was a Heckler with an AM build that tipped the scales at 33lbs, I was quite happy. That Heckler has since been retired and replaced with a Blur LTC that tips the scale at 27lbs...I'm happier now. I decided that at 55yo I was getting too old to be hauling a pig up-side a mountain!

    Well that's terrific but you don't have a 26lb bike do you? What you do have is a perfectly decent bike that lots of people would be happy to own. Just enjoy it. There will always be someone else with a better, lighter, faster bike than yours. Get over it.

    I've had 25lb bikes. I've made terrible choices and either sold or traded them. I know I am now living in the consequences of those choices. I realize that others would love to have my bike. I'm just upset a bit that bikes are so heavy. Perhaps light bikes would be a bad thing for a guy as big as me.

    Get over it? I think I will, and get out riding more often.

    Now you're talking Kona. I never weighed my bike but i'm sure it would be close to 30 lbs. I'm not racing so no big deal. even my road bike is considered heavy by race standards, but who cares. there are plenty of light weight bikes that i wish i could afford, but i can't so i'm happy with what i got (for now). Super light weight isn't always the best option anyhow

    Good stuff. It can be hard to keep motivated but it helps if you can find other people to ride with. I started cycling on my own years ago but pretty soon found someone to go out with. Over the years more have joined in, some have left and there is now a group of maybe fifteen or more. Sometimes it's still just a couple of you who go out, if it's a special run it might be a big bunch, on Saturday it was my two teenage sons I took out but the point is it's easier and more fun if you can find some company.

    I weighed my bike years ago and it was 28lb but I have a different bike now. It's heavier, I'd guess at around 32lb or more. I have a seat-bag full of tools etc and my wheels are not light. I use over-spec wheels as I like the reliability so my bike is not light. I'm a few stone overweight myself but I can still beat most people up a hill so who cares :0)

    Light weight is highly overrated, but its one of few dick measuring substitutes there is in cycling. So it will continue.

    Lightweight might be less important that a lot of things, but it does have some importance.

    First ride on my Madone yesterday. Beat my previous time on the same ride by 7 minutes. The 5500 is an old, heavy bike, where pedal strokes did not feel as "potent" as the Madone.
    The Madone didn't make me fast by any means, but it made me faster. I HAVE, back when I was in actual shape - gone MUCH faster on my 5500 though. Average speeds used to be never below 20, usually 21-24 mph for a 30-40 mile ride. Now, I struggle to get 16. The Madone won't magically make me a 20+mph rider again, only mileage will do that, but man, it did make a difference. Really though, all that does is make it EASIER for me to get to the same speed I used to be, which means I'm still weaker than I was then, because the bike is better.

    The Cannondale, I set a PR on EVERYTHING when I rode it the second time. Not a technical trail (perfect for a hardtail!), but I was 4 minutes faster than my best time on my 32lb Fuel. (On a 1 hour, 9.5 mile quick-loop) There are a number of rooty stutters that I just have to slow down for on the hardtail though. Too much of an impact on my body at this point, and they are up hills, so I don't have the strength or energy to stand and absorb the impacts with my legs.

    My race hard tail is 18.7 pounds. My full suspension all mountain bike is 28.9 pounds.

    I can ride just as fast uphill on the heavier bike as I can on the race bike (with the rear suspension locked out, of course). Bike weight is nothing compared to rider ability. If ten pounds can not slow me down, then it should not slow you down, especially since the percentage of weight difference of both rider and bike is much greater with my 10 pound difference than with yours.

    Before I got into racing, I had an old GF Tassajara Hardtail that weighed more than 30 pounds. I still beat the roadies up paved hills on that thing.

    Oh, and by the way... In case your dietician forgot to tell you, corn is a grain... Grains are essentially ALL carbohydrates. Ditch the popcorn and eat some dried fruit and nuts as a snack. And ride your bike more. In fact, adding some additional weight to it will probably help with the weight loss (more resistance = more effort = more calories burned).

    ETA: If we are including "other bikes", my commuter weighs in at about 32 pounds with racks, lights, and panniers. My old GF Tassajara has been turned into a single speed and weighs in at about 26 pounds now. My road bike weighs about 17 pounds.

    You're assuming weight only comes into play on straight up hill sections.

    How much does your bike weigh?

    When my bike weighs more than a quarter of my body weight. I want lighter. I'm a small person and need a smaller bike to handle better. When I switch I'm sure it will be amazing because I'm exerting the same force on a smaller mass.

    Using that calculation, kona! You're in luck! You are okay with a bike under 70 pounds.

    Re: How much does your bike weigh?

    XL Specialized Camber as seen here in all her glory....28.8lbs.



    I went to a lighter bike last year but I think what helped more then the weight was the geometry and better wheel set. The new bike came with a much smoother rolling set.

    I've kind if stopped tracking weight lose because I seemed to be at a stand still (6'3" @ 242lbs). I chalked it up to muscle gain because despite lack of weight lose my clothes fit looser.

    Re: How much does your bike weigh?

    Kona,

    I moved to Utah 3 months ago. When I got here my bike weighed 27 pounds. I could barely sustain 3 mph when I first started doing my 1000ft+ elevation gain rides here. Now my bike still weighs 27 pounds but I can do 8 mph on the same rides. The progress is so slow it's almost unnoticeable but it is there.
