    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.

    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. :/
