    How much does a Fat Bike weigh?

    I've been asked a few times how much the Pugsley weighs compared to a normal bike. So I borrow the neighbours scales to find out. My road bike, a Dawes Ultra Galaxy comes in at 13.1 or 28.9 lbs Kg, the Genesis iOiD sits at 13.6 Kg or 30 lbs and the mighty Pugsley an interesting 19.3 Kg or 42.5 lbs. All bikes without panniers, etc. I'd be interested to see what other fat bikes weigh?

    I've seen Fatbacks built up, with gears, anywhere from 24lbs(10.9Kg) to 35lbs(15.9Kg). You could make them heavier with cheaper or burlier components. You could make one lighter if you're very light yourself, have a buttload of money and don't mind going 1x10/9/8/5/1.

    My Alum Fatback is right at 30 pounds. I know of a few more pounds of weight savings, but that comes at a steep price tag. Carbon Fork/Ti Pedals/Saddle.

    I have a medium older generation Ti Fatback @28.5# or 12.9 Kg with bar ends, speedometer, bottle cage and 2 X 8 with a bash ring.

    Wife has X Small Alu Fatback @ 29.5 # or 13.4 Kg.

    Most of the difference is in the fork, I have an older lighter steel fork on mine. Also the pedals, mine have ti axles hers don't. That will get taken care of soon enough. Now if I get a carbon fork for me and give her my steel fork both our bikes can get a bit lighter. That should count as a win / win right?

    I think We crunched these numbers a while ago. We reached a conclusion back then that a fat bike carries 5 lbs of extra weight do to fat bike specific parts.

    Maybe now we should redo the math
    100 mm bottom bracket has to be used.
    45-50mm rims because that is the generally accepted minimum rim for the tires.
    Vs two say gordos.
    Two larrys vs the largest 29er tires out there
    Two legit tubes. Debatable, but surly tubes should be used for a standard.

    Other than that it's all personal.

    My Fatback isn't intended to do long hauling or epic trips or anything.

    It's meant to commute/be a fun trail bike.

    If I wanted it to be tough, I'd use the steel fork, and probably Surly Rolling Daryll rims now that they're available. Which would add roughly 1.5lbs. Then I'd consider it epic worthy/

    As of now, I wouldn't do any drops or jumps on it.

    I got close, I'm at 45 pounds with a descending seatpost and studded Larry tires. EDIT: And a NuVinci hub, duh, forgot that part.

    Toyed with the idea of making it electric motored for winter commuting, but the old commute that I had to do went away... but that would have added 15 pounds.

    That has to be one of the lightest Pugsleys on the planet. Well done.

    I am curious why you say Lock On grips are a "Must Have"?

    18” alu Fatback with steel fork – 33 lbs. Same weight as my ‘primary’ fs bike. On Saturday I did a 4 ½ hour ride on the fat bike that was a combination dirt, rocks, snow, ice (ugh, lots of ice) and road (some pretty significant dirt and snow climbing too). I was very pleased with the performance of the fat bike. I do the exact same ride on my fs bike ~20 times a year in the summer and fall and was expecting more trouble with the climbing than I had. The low pressure tires definitely mitigated the wheel/tire weight. It was also snowy and icey enough that I wouldn’t consider this ride in the winter on my fs.

    If you take a couple spills in the snow or it is snowing regular grips tend to move.

    I've been using Ritchey WCS foam grips for years, and have had my share of falls into the snow, with no issues. Maybe I'm just lucky. I use hairspray to put them on for what that is worth.

    Your bike looks like a great setup enjoy it.

    Thought I would resurrect this thread, now that there are a few more fat bikes and lighter components on the market.

    My 17" Motobecane FB4 Elite was 36lbs stock w/o pedals.

    I've got it down to 33lbs, 15oz with Larry/Endo 27tpi, and part swaps...
    reduced weight:
    -Origin8 UL Wheelset (Drilled HL-80s w/ Or8 front hub, XT rear hub)
    -XT rear mech
    -HG50 cassette,
    -bbg drilled bash in place of 44t ring.
    -Charge Scoop saddle
    -Surly Tubes (i keep Qtubes as spares only)

    added weight:
    Ergon GP-2 grips.
    Bigfoot platform pedals.

    Running Origin 8 Captiv-8er UL 3.5" 60tpi tires, it weighs in at 32lbs, even.

    Could have saved more rotating weight with a SRAM cassette, but I saved more money on a pair of HG50s for two wheelsets.

    My small Necromancer Pug currently weighs 31.5 w/pedals. Upgrades are carver carbon fork, drilled RDs, Race Face turbine crank with single 32t ring, On-One floaters, etc.

    I'm hoping to get under 30lbs with a set of new Hope hubs, different pedals, and I just went toobless.

(I'm a great believer in walking on uphills when the pace drops to walking speed.)

    As it sits in the picture it was 31 lbs and 5 oz. Since it was taken I have swapped out the bars and grips for a Jones H Bend bar and Ergon GX1 grips. I have also swapped out the brakes for XT. I also drilled out the rims, and set it up tubeless. Current weight is 30 lbs.

    Thread bumpin for a steel fat bike weight eh?

    They are somewhere around 34lbs, but it's not a bike to ask about weight. You don't get steel for light weight.

    Thanks, might be a bit to much then? , i was thinking of buying one to my 11 year old son, i know it's steel and that Surly don't do light stuff!

    He have tried my ICT 16" and likes it, but the frame size is to big.

    My new large Pugsley SS weighed in at ~32lbs naked, and 37 lbs loaded for a day ride with tire-repair kit, pressure gage, bike multi-tool, full 22 0z water bottle, Topeak Mt Morph frame pump, gas-tank frame bag with phone, camera,& snacks, keys, I.D., medical info card, and a bell.
    Add 5lbs to the above to get the weight for my other Pugs with Shimano Alfine 8-spd hub and Big-O fenders.

    I saw your bike in another thread and would like to repeat, more or less, that the weight of that bike is ridiculously low. Wow.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    On-One Baby Fatty just a touch over 34lbs - pretty much stock apart from cosmetic changes
    Happy with that and in no rush to change anything else as it feels light compared to my Bottlerocket.

    How much does a Fat Bike weigh?

    My Motobecane Stugis Bullet stock with no pedals is 35 lbs. In current config with pedals it's 34 lbs.

    I plan to swap out tires soon and go tubeless. Expecting to get to 32 lbs with no weight weenie parts and big Bluto fork.

    That's mighty impressive right there. Nice work! My Pug SS is 30.8 lbs, pretty much stock with the exception of ghetto tubeless, Ergon grips, Surly tugnut, and an extra cog on the back (17 or 22 T). This is a great riding bike!

    My large NTB w/100mm Bluto is coming in at ~34 pounds now, stock but for:
    Mulfuts tubeless with SunRingle kit
    40mm Husselfelt stem
    640mm XLC riser bar
    Ergon GE1 grips
    Candy 1 pedals
    T-Mars dropper seat post



    I'm annoyed that I'm so far from 30#, but still feel that the bike was a good deal. I think if I converted to carbon handlebars and stem, a lighter dropper, and 1x10 or 1x11 I could get down to 31.X# but it doesn't seem worth it.

    I would do the same.

    Here is my blue Farley I stole the carbon wheels from the black Farley (converted it to 27.5+)

    A hair under 25lbs ready to ride and trust me there is a boat load of Orange seal in each tire. I hate flats.

    Oh, that's pretty.
    I contemplate things to lighten up the fat caad1. Ditching the dropper post would be a good start. And something like those HEDs once a lefty 73 hub becomes available (preferably in fun colors via i9 or elsewhere).

    My '08 Pugs shows up at 35# almost exactly, even with the heavy assed double wall Large Marge wheels. It also has tubeless Nates, aluminum seat post, and heavy pedals, so I know it could drop some more weight pretty easily.

    I don't have a picture, but my Motobacon NTB Ti is just a shade over 33# but that is tubeless.

    I want to see a thread of frame, Fork only weights. lets face it that where the heart of the overall weight is. if you have a 5lb Surly frame you are always gonna have 2lbs over some of the Alu/carbon frames.

    40lb Moonlander. no weight savings at all. Didn't even cut the steerer. 2xl up front, Lou rear, 100mm rims plus tubes. Jones bars w/ergon grips. Fenders, flats, stock cranks rings and bash guard.

    This should make some of you happy with your weights.
    My Mongoose Argus Expert (small) was 16.82kg stock, but now weighs a minumum of 19.16kg=42+ pounds because I am going for reliability.
    One time I had to push a KLX250 out of the jungle after burning out my clutch and thought I was going to die doing it.
    There are 60 poisonous snakes in Thailand and my friend saw a King Cobra (not the malt liquor) riding around. FYI, I have seen one in a tree but it was at a zoo.

    So I made it a little lighter going 1x.
    Deckas 32t 104bcd NW chainring (41g). Stock 24/38t rings were 25/64g.
    Losing the front derailleur/shifter/cable dropped 394g.
    A Ritchey WCS stem (45mm reach=124g) helped.

    Then I went heavier on everything else and stopped measuring grams.
    Brooks B67 spring saddle.
    Ergon GP3 biokork size small grips.
    Truvativ alloy seatpost 400mm (stock 270mm too short for 30" inseam).
    I made the framebag (poorly) to hold a 2 liter water bladder and pump.
    Modded Beto CMP-088 floor pump 351g.
    Strida cage on the seatpost to hold sweet drinks.
    Saddle bag contains a full size spare tube, multitool, chain breaker/links, patch kit, and 2 levers.
    Copper ID badge.
    Innertube chainstay wrap.
    I was not OK with split tubeless on these undersized rims; so I added 8oz of Slime/Stans mix in each tube instead.

    With another 1-2kg of drinks this baby is a real handful, but I don't ride fast and its still lighter than a motorcycle.
    If I go night riding I will add another kilo in 2 lights and a battery pack.
    If I never crash this one and stick with fatbikes a few years; then my next one will be all carbon.How much does a Fat Bike weigh?-2016-02-11-22.25.24.jpgHow much does a Fat Bike weigh?-2016-02-11-22.25.57.jpgHow much does a Fat Bike weigh?-2016-02-11-22.25.33.jpg

    I don't believe in reliability also means it needs to weigh a ton, there is a happy medium if one wants to throw the cash at it.

    I bet that if i took all the parts off my Moonlander and put them on a fancy carbon frame i would have a 37lb carbon bike.

    It's funny how people equate a carbon frame bike to be automatically super light. It's not, it's a sum of all parts.

    Yes the sum of the parts. However if you use a frame and fork that are lighter you will end up with a bike thats lighter in the end.

    Has anyone mentioned weight loss, ie going on a diet?

    Ya know, it's a lot cheaper and generally a healthier way to go physically as well as fiscally.

    My Mutz is over 30#, I have no idea by how much because I think weighing it would be silly.

    I just added a pound by changing from a Bluto 120mm to a longer travel, burlier fork (Wren 150mm). This change gets filed under "Hell Yeah"!

    I just lost a pound changing from Floaters to JJ 4.0s, this was a positive change, better tires, running cleaner, still give good traction and support. I run 300gm tubes, which are more reliable than tubeless and just about the same weight.

    I suppose I could get some RF Carbon Cinch cranks and lose 250 grams, that might be worth it....

    Deity nylon pedals with steel pins are 300gm, not a lot better out there for platforms that work and are durable.

    Volt Comp seat wide, fairly comfortable, for $150 I could lose 100gms changing to a Pro.

    SRAM ghetto 1x, I suppose I could spend a bundle and get a lighter weight 11sp rig, but the weight loss would be minimal and the cost would be substantial as I share wheels on multiple rigs.

    In terms of functionality and strength:
    - I'm not losing the dropper, it's one of the most functional things I own, awesome for changing position when riding steep terrain and doing drops.
    - My Onyx rear hub is the shite, durable, instant engagement, you can take it from me when rigor mortis has set in.
    - All my little parts are light and functional, Ergo grips, 7000 series Kore bars, RF stem, Guide RSC brakes.

    But if I lose ten pounds, now there's a change I can live with and it won't cost me a cent!

    Good point Ben, you shouldn't care too much about fat bike weight if you've a tire around your waist. Unless it's a bling bling thing.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Come on Ben, only everyone who thinks removing weight from a bike, any bike not just fat bikes, is silly has asked this. Well maybe not everyone of them but lots and lots. This is not a new question and it will never be resolved. Both sides of the debate have good, and bad, points that can be made. Sorry to be contrary, but you did ask.
