    Was unsure if you're seeking advice or not. You have some room to drop weight. I always liked the Magura Durin fork - capable and surprisingly light.

    Easy to do with a S or Med frame.

    Pretty hard to do with a XXL

    Not sure what XXL Frame you are referring to but the weight difference is not that big of an issue actually. Cannondale M and XL are about 100g different at max.

    You are right

    .25lbs does not matter in the weight weenie forum

    It matters but it does not really impact your ability to go below 23 pounds.

    larsd? Have you posted photos of your bike to this thread?

    Just curious.

    A fs XXL sub 23#?

    I would love to see that.

    I am at just a touch over 24#.

    I think I did. Here again.Post your light-weight bikes!-img_3146.jpg

    This is M and 9.2kg. We have another two XL Bikes in the team with 9.4kg each. Note that this is pretty much stock. If you change to XX1 you can save another 200g to 300g depending on the option.

    With Furios Fred Tires I am under 9kg and with XX1 8.6kg.

    This thread is the worst.
    FS = Full Suspension
    FS = Front Suspension (hardtail)
    All of a sudden a FS XL bike under 23lbs isn't so uncommon

    Must admit, I've not heard of hardtails short-formed as FS.

    7.11kg commuter. if i dropped the ~1750 gram crank brother's for something lighter there is easily another 3-400 grams to be saved... but they just look sexy.

    I know it was months ago but the part about 23lbs being "a little heavy for a FS bike" REALLY cracked me up... what planet are you living on that 23lbs is heavy for FS bike?

    I think you forgot to add "lightweight" and "xc" in front of FS... show me a dozen FS bikes that weigh 23lbs or less and are capable of the type of riding that FS bikes nowadays are meant for (big jumps, drops, high speed crashes)..... the only FS bikes I can think of that come stock 23lbs or less are INCREDIBLY expensive and can't handle much.... I wonder what the lightest bike on the EWS circuit was? Probably no less than 24.75lbs and even that is LIGHT

    I know for a fact that Jerome's bike (he WON) was 28lbs...


    EDIT: this post is under the assumption that FS means "full suspension" and not "front suspension"

    You're adding criteria that doesn't matter to a weight weenie. It isn't difficult to BUILD a 23 lb FS bike. If 19 lb FS bikes are possible to build, then a 23 lb bike would be 4 lbs heavier. That's pretty significant in my book.
    A weight weenie wouldn't just buy an off the rack bike, and call it finished. The message thread is specifically to post your lightweight bike in the weight weenie forum. Every post is subject to criticism in an open forum like this.

    There are plenty of other places to show off a nice bike that you are proud of owning, regardless of weight.

    I find it laughable that people can be so thin-skinned about messages in a bike forum, that they have to go ballistic if they don't get applauded for every sentence they write...We shouldn't have to tip-toe around someone elses delicate feelings...

    Thanks andrepsz. I'm pretty happy with it so far. I have some other stuff coming for it soon ie. Bolts and jockey wheels, although 98% percent of the bolts have already been swapped for Ti or aluminum. I'll have to re-weigh it afterwards.
