    Did I do bad math before my first coffee? 35/122 right?= .28 ish?

    I'm a wimp. No upper arm strength. But I can ski like no tomorrow.

    1. On flat terrain once the bike is up to a constant speed, weight is irrelevant. Rolling resistance on the other hand (tire selection and pressure) can make a significant difference on level ground.

    2. My kids started riding on bikes that weighed about as much as they did. It was quite some time before their bikes were at 50% of their body weight or less. They always seemed to have fun regardless, and never made any mention about bike weight, probably because I didn't send the little suckers up any steep climbs (see item 1 above).
    Nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    No, YOU are missing the point. You sound like a damn broken, whiny record. Everyone gives you the same advice, and you choose to ignore it. Fut the shuck up.

    A friend of mine has a son who's about ten and his bike is a tank! It's an adult size bike with heavy everything. The poor kid can hardly get it up a hill. He came with us to a trail park recently and it was chronic. He had to bush the bike up every climb. No way that is fun for a kid. Give them a light little bike they can chuck around and you'll see what fun is!

    I believe my Trek Marlin 29er was 32-33 lbs stock. It currently tips the scales between 26.5 and 27.5 lbs. Weights are approximate because I only have access to the bathroom scale method.

    No. I have upped my riding to 10 to 14 miles per ride, around 3 to 4 times a week. I don't really know if I am losing weight, it just feels good to ride and challenge myself. :/

    If you just keep upping the distance and effort the weight will come off. Don't worry about it, just keep riding.

    Lets see here. Low carb/low fat diet, exercising 3 to 4 times a week at 8 to 14 miles each ride, and I am gaining weight. Not happy. Only thing i can think of is I am gaining more muscle mass. :/

    "Consistency over time." Unfortunately, it always seems to take more time than we would like.

    If you want to drop the weight quicker go paleo. I was dropping 4 pounds a week. No grains no dairy. Be strict and it literally melts off. I was having the same problem was working my arse off and nothing. Then a buddy told me about paleo and et vola I'm now 30 pounds lighter which doesn't account for muscle mass I gained so prob lost more.
    If riding a lot eat a lot of carbs vegetables but stay away from grains.
