    How much does your bike weigh?

    Just curious what the weight of everyone's bike weighs, nothing more.

    Yeah I didn't like what I found out when I weighed my bike either. Trying to find out if 31/32 pounds is an average weight for a mountain bike.

    Kona you forgot to add in if it's a 29" / 27.5" / 26" SS / geared, ridged or squishy and what length of travel and what is the frame made out of. Please re-do your poll.

    Yeah I don't know how to do that. When I click on edit post it does not give any options to edit the poll. I was looking for results for 26" aluminum hardtails with 100/120mm forks.

    For a DH bike, light. AM bike average/slightly heavy. For an XC bike way too heavy.

    My XC HT is 24.5. My XC FS is 26.5. I can't imagine being happy with a 32lbs bike.

    Yeah, I'm not. Thinking about hanging up mountain biking for awhile, maybe take up road biking. Where is all the weight coming from?

    I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you ride those bikes. Mine only looked that way the day I finished building them.

    A couple of pounds of bike weight makes zero difference if your not at or near fighting weight yourself. I'd gladly take a body weight loss over a lighter bike weight.

    Yeah, I understand. I'm tipping the scales at 280 pounds myself. I ride on average 4 times a week, 5 to 8 miles per ride. I have yet to see any weight loss. :/

    About 38 lbs. lately, but it's been so humid here lately, 2 or 3 of those pounds are probably "water-weight".

    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

    Fuel Ex 29" - 29Lb; hoping to make a few upgrades w/ lighter parts in the coming year.

    Whats the easiest, cost effective way of lightening your bike? I will likely just upgrade parts when I feel like it is necassary.

    I totally agree with this statement! Losing pounds and gaining strength at the same time is way tougher than buying a component to make your bike lighter. But the results are definitely noticeable when you ride. Also, do a once over on your camelback or whatever you may be using and really take note on what you need on the trail. You can cut 2-3 pounds easy in regards to fluid and gear.

    I vehemently disagree. Eating healthy as a lifestyle is more expensive than bike parts by far.

    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.

    Bonus, your username is not taken on road bike review!

    Ha Ha. That's a joke...right?

    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.

    My bike weighs about 10kg without fenders, lights, bags and locks. And about 15 with them on. I built my bike with the strongest most durable components I could find on earth (without it getting stupid). Steel frame, steel fork.

    When I wrote this I didn't think I'd get replies about my weight.

    I'm pretty healthy already, losing weight isn't much of an option, I guess we can always be healthier though. Thanks anyway, been nice reading the discussion.

    Where is the option that reads 'I don't care'?

    I used to but riding with other people for years I've noticed some stuff. Like the fact a stiff bike will accelerate and climb better than a light one. And being overweight isn't the end of the world. If you are stronger and fitter than the skinny guys, you will still beat them.

    All things being equal a lighter bike will make you faster.

    But we all know how easy it is to lose 10 pounds. Lighten the bike and the body.

    A heavy bike will always be a boat anchor. Harder to carry and flic around.

    A heavier bike will always be more durable too. Some people have troublems with their bikes breaking down then heavier more low tech is better imo.
    I have never had that problem though since I buy only the beefiest strongest **** there is. And spend 0.00000ms worrying about it.

    S-Works Fate (hardtail) in large = 20.5 pounds
    Spec Epic Expert (full squish) in medium = 25.8 pounds

    My full suspension is a fatty

    I started out on a 33 pound hard tail. The thing was a monster, and I felt like the best climber in the world when I got my Epic and dropped all those pounds off my bike.

    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
