    New question here. How much do YOU weigh?

    Just curious what the average rider weight here is. Thought I'd make a poll.

    You can drop 5-10lbs or even more from your bike but what if you dropped 50lbs off that butt of yours? Share your experiences with bike weight vs rider weight, or if you've lost or gained weight and can tell the difference while riding!

    I weigh around 165. Recently my girlfriend started riding with me and I've been carrying a camelbak that's close to 20 pounds while riding a fatbike with a suspension fork, dropper post, and flat pedals to make things a little more difficult

    Wow 20lb pack! I think the heaviest mine has been is a few pounds, but then again I'm not riding with an air pump or too much water right now.

    I guess you do have to consider the weight of your gear too, kind of skipped my mind. Helmet, pack, clothes/shoes, water, it adds up quick! I'm right at 130lbs, wish I was actually a bit heavier with more muscle mass so I could power up hills easier.

    6'6" 215.
    I try to keep around 210 but it's difficult with my build and my predisposition to build muscle easily. Well relatively easily I guess. The more I ride the heavier I get is the issue. Not complaining though.

    Yeah, must suck to build muscle easily.

    This is somewhat what I speculated, a lot of people bike to lose a bit of weight and gain some muscle. It's a fun workout!

    Do you all ride predominately "Large" size frames? I'm 5'10" and went with a Large GT frame because it felt great in the parking lot and I can stand over top flat footed no problem. However, on hills and over jumps I'd like the seat to be lower and the seat post is a good 6" or more above the tube at it's lowest position. I'm thinking above cutting the post 1-2", it will still be far above the "minimum insertion point" and should allow me to more easily get my butt behind the seat when I need to.

    This is getting OT, but odds are most folks are using M or L frames, depending on height, and to an extent inseam.

    Unless of course you are built like Hawg.

    How much do YOU weigh?

    6'2" and was 265# a month ago. Down to 245# by cycling to work 3x per week and MTB rides on the weekends. Feeling good after 15 years off the bike. 210# is my target weight, as I am heavy boned.

    I'm 5'6 in height was at 162lbs way back January 2014, now I'm at 149lbs every after long ride, by the next time my body weight will go up and stabilize at 152lbs..

    my bike weight was at 13.9 kilos made some upgrades and went down to 10.9kilos..

    I used to ride like 20kms in 1 day, now I can handle 230kms in 1 ride flat roads and 200kms with climbs and flats

    I would like to achieve 140lbs on my bodyweight and 9.7kgs on my bike

    6' 4" 185 lbs. I ride XL frames.

    I'd like to get down to 175 but it will take strict diet and I like beer.

    6'2.5" and 205 pounds down from 263 before I started MTB. I may shoot for 190 as a final goal weight. Original goal was 225, and I smashed that.

    Height = 5'6"
    Weight this morning, naked, after I took a wiz = 159.6

    Riding gear including shoes, helmet, and clothes should be in the 5-8 pound range I would think...but I am going to weigh myself with it on to see next time I ride!

    5' 11" and down to 174 from 206.

    Last year at this time I was 184, and I notice a huge difference going up hill.
