    Flite Weight

    The medium Flite bike with the pedals is rated at 34.8lbs on the Sette website.

    I have a large frame and I weighed my bike on the bathroom scale and it came to 30lbs (+/- 2lb)

    The bike is stock aside from the following:

    - Maxxis Ultralight tubes. 125g/Each
    - Sette Type S grips
    - Sette Nyx saddle. 190g
    - Time Alium Clipless pedals
    - Shortened brake hoses and shifter cable housings

    Not bad at all considering how heavy the Domain fork is.

    Share your Flite's weight with us.

    sounds like a really good weight to me. Is your bathroom scale digital? Should be fairly accurate, if it is. It is more accurate to weigh yourself and them weigh yourself holding your bike. The difference it what your bike weighs.

    Analog. I believe it is pretty accurate. I weighed myself using the old school scale at my gym then weighed myself after I got home and it gave the exact same reading.

    I'm pretty sure my hardtail is around 30lbs and it gave the same reading.

    I'm guessing it will lose more weight when I switch to 2x9 and remove the big ring.

    yeah, weigh yourself.
    then weigh yourself holding the bike.
    much more accurate.

    ~mine is just under 34lbs according to the LBS scale and 34 on the nose using the above method

    I did the 'weigh by itself' method before and got screwey #'s before - I don't think a bath scale is accurate at such "low" weights
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Weight without bike: 186lb
    Weight with bike: 219

    Bike weight: 33lb which seems more reasonable.

    Still pretty good since they say it ways almost 35 on a medium frame and yours is 33 on a large

    In terms of feel I don't really notice a difference in weight between the Flite and my hardtail. Then again I don't have a scale implanted in my brain. I'm sure Highdelll has one in his though. He's too smart and "balanced".

    I'm going to switch out the rear 2.35 Nevegal. I'm considering the Syncros Point N Chute 2.35 which weighs less and is supposed to roll better.

    The Nevegal has great traction, but feels like you're rolling through thick honey all the time. Very nobby and slow.

    Recommended inflation is 50-65 psi. Thats pretty high.
