    I've compiled a list of all the submitted tires and their weights. Gonna work up a new spreadsheet for this. And going to make it a priority to keep it updated.

    Yes I know there is another one already. But its not fully updated. The List I've compiled is almost 3 pages long so far and I'm not done yet.

    So I'm doing one.

By the way, there are more tires in this category for 29"ers coming.

    Plenty of guys riding and racing semi-slick tires in the 26" and the 29" platforms who would beg to differ with your opinion as to how they could be considered a mountain bike tire.

    Toss a leg over a pair, take 'em out on your trails and get back to us. That's really the only way to answer the question.

    My apologies. For some reason the first link on the first page was only showing a partial list. Now its showing one that is closer to what I have written down.

    Sorry.

    Dammit. Forgot to weigh my Geax Barro Race TNT's 29x2.0's before mounting them.

    Advertised weight is 660g.

    You are right. Still under claimed weight though .

    The plastic card that they came with said 510gr, but it said 2.25" too, so that is probably a mixup with the front specific tire.

    I'm still surprised these came out this light. Prototypes averaged around 815g. Do you like them so far?

    I cannot say very much about them since I received them just today... The first visual impression is good, knobs are a bit higher than for the 2.25 and the sidewall is a bit thicker. I have not mounted them on a rim, though, so I cannot say anything about their dimensions.

    Weighed on my employers $3k scale ( = accurate)

    Specialized Captain 2Bliss 2.2 = 653.56g
    Fast Trak Control LK 2.0 = 622.50g

    I would have added to the spreadsheet, but these do not seem to match up with anything on it. Neither description nor weights.

    from www.singlespeed.nl, for 45 Eur not really a special offer, but ordering them from the US is +/- the same price considering shipping and customs/VAT. Getting special 29er stuff in Europe is still a bit of a mess, either not available or a bit on the pricey side...

    Bontrager weights

    As noted above, the packaging on some Bontrager tires has much different -- and usually less accurate -- weights than what appears on their website.

    For example, the Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue tire specs on the website claim the weight is 730g. Plastic packaging with the tire reads 600g

    Anyway, from the scale:

    Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue 728g
    Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue 714g

    Bontrager XR-1 Team Issue 494g
    Bontrager XR-1 Team Issue 492g

    Geax Barro Race 29X2.0 470.1 grams These are not true 2.0's they're more like 1.8's. Kinda disappointing. Got them sealed tubeless on 355's easily.

    OK, let me play stupid. But with all these tire weights and girths, which can make a signicant difference in the roll and performance of a bike, how many of these tires are you guys running with tubes and how many are not? I know the Conti and Bon TLR work tubeless, because I've run them that way. And I know juice in the tires also adds weight, but what about RRs. I've seen them on bikes at the LBS and I like the profile but none of the guys I ride with use them. I've seen basically nothing but good comments from this forum about RR and are highly recommended, but everything else I've read says they don't work tubeless, and I only run tubes on my roadie. My knowledge of 26" tires has the manufacturer making tires with different thickness of casing depending on if the tire is UST or not. A typical UST tire is heavier because of the thicker sidewalls, thus adding weight and sidewall support, while a tube tire is not because the tube makes up the difference, therefore making it lighter until the tube is installed. To even further my confusion, the Bon 29-3 2.25 comes in an Expert version that is thick and heavy while the Team version is thin and light. Both are listed as TLR but is the lighter Team actually designed to used with a tube. That is how they are sold on production bikes. Curious, because I'm currently running the lighter Team for this weekend's Spa City 6hr, trying to decide what to run for Ouachita and Syllamo. Please clarify stupid.

    This is a picture 20 minutes after being mounted tubeless so I'm hoping they expand some. Maxxis Crosmark on the left,Kenda Small block 8 2.1" to the right.

    How accurate is a digital bike scale (like a Park Tool DS-1) for light weight stuff like tires? My scale puts both my new Aspens at 1lb 2oz (~510g).

    Finally got around to borrowing my bros scale and weighing all my tyres and wanted to throw them up for comparo. New and used tyres.

    NEW
    Bontrager XR1 = 530g (front 2.25")
    Bontrager MudX = 660g (very lightly used)
    Michelin XC A/T = 686 & 682g
    Kenda Nevegal = 790g (very lightly used)
    Maxxis Ardent 2.25" = 774g (lightly used)
    WTB WW LT = 790g (very lightly used)
    Conti Mtn.King 2.4" = 742g (lightly used)

    USED
    Conti Mtn.King 2.2" = 652g
    Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25" = 616g
    Maxxis Ignitor = 666g & 674g (highly used)
    Maxxis Crossmark = 638g & 556g (highly used and 1 trimmed)
    WTB Nano = 558 & 606 (highly used and trimmed)

    sweet! keep 'em coming... i'm still updating.
    i didn't use your highly trimmed and highly used numbers for obvious reasons, but they are interesting. i also had to figure your XR1 is expert and not team issue (that was an obvious one). that racing ralph is a snakeskin version? I didn't use it because I didn't know, but no other RR in the sheet is over 600g.
    to all-
    the more info, the better. if i can't verify something, i usually leave the numbers out, which is why i have maintained control over the spreadsheet-- to have some sort of QC on it. I'm also going to add the link to every post I make in here, so it's easier to find. I asked for it to be made a sticky, but didn't make the cut.

    Actually you did, all the stickies are now located above the forums threads so they don't clutter up the first first spaces ;-) That's how I easily found it

    On the RR, it's not Snake Skin - it might weigh a bit more cause I forgot to mention that I tore the sidewall and had to patch and sew it up the XR1 is the normal version, but do have a set of the TLR front and rear sitting in the shop to pick up.
