    To my mind, this should be a sticky.

    Done. The first time your post must have threaded the needle between when I was building the spreadsheet and when I posted it (it was right before I posted it).
    I'm subscribed to the thread, so I should get e-mails everytime someone posts here.

    Someone should start a weight-weenies style wiki page.

    You could call it "Dunlop Tire Weenie Wiki".

    I can throw down some of the new Bontrager's...

    XR1 Team Issue 1.9" 480g
    29-3 Team Issue 2.0" 450g
    29-0 Team Issue 1.9" 412g

    These have been the popular ones with the team. All of them are tube type tires, but set up tubless very well with Stan's.

Then it gets into an off topic flame war because someone used British English and some retarded American with nothing better to do thinks they are being clever by pointing this out, and 26 pages later no one can agree if someone's mother was fat or not, and then some retro-grouch chimes in about how drop bars are great and nothing built after 1984 has been worth the trouble. Then some douchbag from Germany spends hours trying to sell his homemade vapourware. Most of the time I just want simple information, not an argument. Quite frankly I don't give a crap what some armchair expert with 3 billion posts thinks about Y and Z when I asked about X.

    Also, there isn't a good, current list of part weights online anymore.

    Weight weenies is OK, but it would be nice to get some info about, say, what conditions certain tyres are good in, what fork crowns clear what frames etc...

    If anyone wants to walk me through how to do something, then I would be willing to do the fiddling etc.

    First, you've described pretty much every internet forum there is. People don't do research because it's easier to post asking a question that was asked and answered two days prior than to search for a whole minute. Like you, they think having someone else do the work is a better approach.
    Sounds like you need to whiff reality and get over it or allocate less of your time to internet forums.
    Your cute little cross-section of forum contributors is about as dumb as it gets... you managed to condense 1000 posts worth of retarded into 150 words. Xenophobic stereotypes might get you points with fellow subjects of the crown, but they certainly don't put me in a mood to 'walk you through' anything but the exit door.

    I'm riding the Schwalbe Furious Fred 29x2.0 for two weeks

    319 grams and 354 grams

    Real size is not 2.0 but rather 1.8. They are no bigger than my Bontrager Jones XR 1.8.

    HELLA fast on hardpack, gravel, road, roots and grass. Avoid rocks or any terrain that can cause pinch flat because they are thin like road tires (actually I'd call them "high volume road tires with small knobs". Acceleration is INSANE compare to any other tires Rolling resistance is.... well it's like there is none . Increased my cruising speed by 3 mph.

    Need more speed. GET THEM !!!!

    Today I picked up my set of Bontrager FR3 tires, "Team" version (ie, 120 TPI version) and WOW, while i honestly dont mind a heavy tire, these are more than I would have preferred anyway @ 1038 grams! I only weighed one in fear the second would have confirmed the weight...LOL.

    Great thread. Swapped my 29er WTB Exiwolf 2.3 to Maxxis Crossmarks 2.1, aided by information on this forum = 500-ish grams saving on weight. Best $/kg saving made yet.

    I was running them front and rear at first. Crashed on a loose rocky downhill and decided it is not the best in the front. I still run it in the rear but run a Karma in front. I still get good acceleration but have much better control.

    Looks like you need WTB Prowler data I have SL's that came on my Marin...I'll go pull em' and weigh em'...

    EDIT:

    WTB Prowler SL 2.10

    Advertised is 726

    Pretty big difference...no wonder my bike feels so "Porky"

    furious freds 334g and 345g

    took them out on rocky, shale and roots trail they held up fine. traction was a problem at higher psi, hitting the rim was a problem at lower psi. they are very narrow and work fastest on grassy surfaces at med high psi or very high psi on the street. otherwise save your money.
