Mach 5 weights?
Post up your Mach 5 weights if you got em. I'd like to see how mine compares to the average bike.
This is what I have so far
Frame: Large 2009 Mach 5 29lbs +- .5lbs (w pedals)
-Ardent 2.4 exo tires + performance tubes (could cut about .5 lbs with tubeless)
-Stans Flow EX + Hope Evo 2 hubs + Sapim Race
-X0 Long cage RD, Hone FD, X9 Shifters, KMC SL9 chain, pg990 cassette
-XT m775 Cranks
-XT m785 Brakes
-Thomson X4 Stem/Thomson 360mm post
-WTB Vigo Saddle
-Truvativ Noir Carbon bar low rise
-Odi lock grips
-Eggbeater SL pedals
2008 Mach 5 medium
Stan's Crest Wheelset with Racing Ralph front Maxis Aspen Rear tubeless
Syntace P6 Hi Flex seat post with Selle Italian Flite saddle
90 mm 15 degree stem with Ritchy WSC Carbon bars
XO shifters and rear mech XT front mech
XT cranks XTR pedals
27.5 pounds with XT Wheelset and Schwalbe Hans Damph tyres.
Almost the same build.. wonder why mine is so much heavier?
You have a large frame mine is medium, this would be the main difference.

The Stans Crest wheelset is 1420 grams and I am running light tyres tubeless.
All the little things add up plus the frame and wheels so it makes a big difference in the end.
If you are on a large frame you are probably over 6 foot tall so you have the strength to push it. In the end it is about fitness anyway the weight in general is not such a big factor.
Yep you're probably right (about fitness) although I'm not particularly a strong rider. Thanks for your input.
