    Scott Scale on the Scale

    So I posted this info in the weight weenies section, but their info get buried in the forums really quick so I thought I'd start thread here where we could post the weight of our stock components for those that don't have access to scales.

    Some weights I did on my own, others were taken from the bike scales website (if its in bold it is my measurement).

    Part Comp Wgt
    Frame 1588
    RockShox XC TK 29 Coil (fork) 2211
    Shimano FC-M522, 42/32/24 (Crank) 853
    Shimano ES25 Octalink (bottom bracket) 300
    Shimano Deore (shifters) SL-M591-10 291
    Shimano Deore (deraileur front) FC-M590-10 153
    Shimano SLX (deraileur rear) RD-M663 SGS 272
    Shimano CS-HG62-10, 11-36, 10 speed 457
    Shimano BR-M446 + BL-M445 566
    Scott Hot Rod T (handlebar) 260
    Scott Comp (stem) 130
    Scott Comp (seat post) 296
    Scott Racing (saddle) 308

    Wellgo C128 (pedals) 387
    Shimano CN-HG54 (chain) 281
    Scott QR (front) 57
    Shimano QR (rear) 87
    kenda 29 2/2.3 Tube (front) 204
    kenda 29 2/2.3 Tube (rear) 206
    Rocket Ron 29x2.25 (front) 551
    Rocket Ron 29x2.25 (rear) 586
    Alex XC-49 Disc Rim + Scott Team Disc CL 32h hub (front) 937
    Alex XC-49 Disc + Shimano FH-RM66 Disc CL 32 hub (rear) 1135
    Scott Post Clamp 39

    SM-RT53M (front rotor) 180mm 202
    SM-RT53 (rear rotor) 160mm 179
    Total 12536

    The total is 27.64 pounds which is .11 pounds heavier than advertised on the Scott webpage and .61 pounds lighter than the scale at the bike shop displayed. Thats only a 2.2% difference, and does well to validate my results. Of course I wish I had a bunch of great scales so I could have perfect results, but with engineering tolerances being as they are, these results are just fine for someone wanting to know the approx weight of an object.
    They were willing to give their lives for yours, some of them did, others just gave up their way of life. Support the WWP.

    i'm at about 23 lbs on an XL with mods in sig... still need to change
    - Cranks
    - Tires
    - Saddle
    - Stem
    - Cages (i have heavy plastic ones on)

    and after that i hope to be as close to 22 lbs as possible which would be sick on an aluminum bike. then start saving for a scale carbon frame

    His scale is probably like mine - a 26er. Mine comes in at 18.5# with everything (pedals and 2 water bottle cages) - and I could get another 0.5-1# by changing tires (going to 2.0's from 2.25's), but like the way my current set up rides.

    You can loose a bunch of weight with your above tires, tubes, and wheels - if you want to get weight off the bike fast.

    yeah i noticed the biggest difference when i changed my wheelset and fork. bike is in the shop right now getting some lighter bits and should be closer to 22 lb's (XL 29er) by this time tomorrow

    My 29er Scott Scale Pro is just under 23 pounds. Only charges I made from stock, were swap out the rotors for smaller ones, carbon handlebar, different tire choice and upgraded the rear cassette. Includes pedals.

    The bike is simply an amazing ride and not as harsh on the body as I thought it would be.

    Looks like you're missing the weight for grips, unless I'm mistaken.

    According to my LBS and its Park scale (no pun intended) the 2012 Scale Expert 29 in a large was 24 pounds on the nose with the test ride pedals.

    I have since replaced the boat anchor oem wheels with Crest and then eventually much wider and stiffer yet equally as light Cheap Chinese Carbon 29er wheels. Probably lost at least a pound. Got rid of the heavy tubes which were 280 grams each! The Chinese carbon wheels are 30mm external and 23mm internal which made my Specialized 2.2 and 2.0 tires much wider and now I have the option to run narrower lighter tires and still have a contact patch equal to or greater than a larger tubeless tire on a narrower rim.

    The fork was swapped out for a 2012 SID RCT3
    OEM Ritchey stem in 90x6 is 151 grams
    OEM bar was over 300 grams and is now a 185 gram carbon bar
    Crankset went 2x10 XT, rear derailleur didn't lose any weight because the XTR Shadow Plus is not a weight weenie part but oh is it so quiet!
    HG81 cassette was about 380 grams and is now an XTR 12-36 at 261g

    Grips are now Ritchey WCS Ergo foam, stock heavy saddle is now a Fizik Antares braided carbon (150 grams and comfy!), shifters went from SLX 3x10 to XTR 2x10 and the oem Avid S5 are now XTR 985 Race with 160/160 rotors.

    The 297 gram oem 34.9 post has options: use a shim (I know many are cringing while some are not) which weighs 49 grams and a Thomson Masterpiece 27.2 post in the spare parts bin at 190 grams or a Ritchey WCS 34.9 x 400mm at about 220 grams and no shim.

    how are your carbon rims holding up? Also I don't think you mentioned your finished weight.

    I'm interested in knowing what the Alex XC-49 rim weighs. I've searched around and couldn't find anything.
