    Please List Your Fat Bike Weight

    I hope the reader will find this information useful, and other members will post their fat bike weight as well. Please include the maker, model, model year, size of frame, cost, condition (new/used), whether the bike was weighed with modifications or not, and any issue with ownership that may be relevant to current owners and potential future owners who are currently in the marketplace for a fat bike.

    I own an iRide Rocker, by Momentum, a subsidiary of Giant.
    The Momentum iRide Rocker's webpage does not mention its complete weight. After a year of searching, I had found only one listing by owner, not retailer, posted at 34 lbs (roughly, I forget the decimal number, but 34 pounds, and some number of ounces).
    I am told to expect a slight variation on production builds for average weight.

    Recently, I had the opportunity to weigh my bike on a postal scale, with the help of some friends. Here is what I learned about my 2016 Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant.

    Manufacturer: Momentum by Giant
    Model Name: iRide Rocker
    Production Year: 2016
    Frame Size: Small
    Overall Cost: $620 + tax
    Condition: New
    Modifications: None yet.

    35.8 lbs = Complete Bike, stock with wheels/tires

    16._ lbs = Complete Bike, stock without wheels/tires.
    (I forget the exact decimal number and will round down to 16 lbs for convenience sake)


    19.8 lbs = approximated weight of both Front/Rear tires!!!

    (Weight is approximated because of the blank decimal range in the Complete Bike, stock without wheels listed above, and I am rounding down to 16 lbs. for sake of convenience).


    On 2016-0918, some friends and I weighed my bike on a postal scale, stripped of extras I normally adorn my Rocker with, such as mirrors, lights, bike packs, cell phone mount, etc.

    (I treat my Rocker as a road bike, and honestly, problem #1 is that the Rocker is geared too low to ride with other bikes on the street. For social group riding, it is fine, but in my opinion, the Rocker requires a change of the crank sprocket from 38T to some number in the range of 44T to 54T, so the bike will be able to travel with other road bikes at higher speeds. The highest gearing on the Rocker has a 38T front, 14T rear, and this is not high enough for me to keep up with other road/mountain bikes on the street).

    The complete Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant, stripped of extras, came out to weigh 35.8 pounds. Then all we did was remove the front and rear tires from the Rocker, and weighed it again.

    The complete Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant without its wheels/tires, came to weigh 16._ pounds. (I forget the decimal number, but the scale measuring the weight of the Rocker without tires/wheels read 16._ pounds, making the tires' combined weight at nearly 20 pounds.)

    Surprisingly, the Rocker's rims/tires combo weigh more than the bike itself, weighing nearly 20 lbs to the rest of the bike, which weighs 16+ lbs. Is it this simple to ride a complete fat bike that weighs under 21 lbs by merely swapping in a lightweight rim/tire set (5 lbs combined), for the original super heavyweights, and lower this entry level fat bike's weight, by this simple modification that lowers the fat bike's complete weight to 21 lbs or less?.

    Even with my recent discovery of the Rocker's actual, enormous. and obese tire weight, and the realization that upgrading to a lighter rim/tire combination would drop 10-15 lbs from the bike, I remain in the market for a new front crank first.

    The Rocker comes with a single 38T front sprocket, but for my road needs, I require something possibly somewhere between 44T and 54T; and my mountain biking needs require a lower gearing, maybe somewhere in between 22T and 28T. It is clear that the 38T is not a good fit for both applications, so any gear modification would have to be two single cranks, or both at the same time, which would require a 2x front crank set, one sprocket showing 22T-28T, and one showing 44T-54T, and a fat bike front derailleur mount and derailleur system which sheds light on another problem.

    The Rocker has other design aspects to consider. The Rocker's frame was designed to accept a 7-Gear Free Wheel Hub that is wider than the frame. As a result the right side of the frame appears to be cut and pushed out where the wheel's spindles mount to the frame. This may limit the chain's ability to travel across the gears. Imagine a tubular frame that got flattened and pushed to the right so far that the chain travels the lowest gears where the frame tube should be.

    I don't know if this design will raise other concerns for modifying the Rocker to accept 2x or more front crank sprockets. Installing a 2x ore more crank on the Rocker will require the chain to travel a wider and larger circumference. Though I have not mentioned the space required for a front derailleur, I have discovered Fat Bike Front Derailleur mounts exist, and may make installing a front derailleur easier for a bike with a round seat tube.

    In closing, my stock fat bike, the Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant, came out to be 35.8 lbs on its own, and 19.8 lbs was located in its tires. Without tires, the rest of the bike weighed less than 17 lbs. After I get a new set of wheels/tires, I'll be back to update my progress, and debrief you of my encounter upgrading the Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant, with the hope of keeping the complete FAT BIKE weight under 20 lbs.

    Other concerns are the chain travel along a 2x or 3x front crank system, the front derailleur space required for a fat bike vs derailleur range of motion, and the odd frame design at the rear tire mount.

    Upgrading inexpensively is a matter of money and fortunate timing, but however my experiences are resolved, I'll be back to present a new weight for my modified 2016 Momentum iRide Rocker by Giant to keep other/future Rocker owners appraised of the changes I have attempted, and how these changes have worked out.

    Future and present Rocker owners may want to know/remember:
    Taking the Rocker off road violates the manufacturer's warranty.

    23-24lbs depending on what tires I have mounted up, about 4K spent.


    LaMere Carbon frame (2.8lbs)

    Build is just a bit different than the picture, now with XTR race brakes and Ai2 rotors (turns out you don't need a ton of braking force in the winter and you sure don't need much rotor "cooling", although I do use a 180mm front rotor to get a little more bite).

    Some of the choices are made for cold weather, as opposed to just light weight, like the carbon handlebar, brake levers. Less heat transmission=warmer rider.

    Manufacturer: Surly
    Model Name: Pugsley
    Production Year: 2012
    Frame Size: Large
    Overall Cost: Who knows at this point
    Condition: Well, well loved
    Modifications: Only the rims and the front fork are original to the bike - every other part has been broken, replaced, or upgraded, including the frame - though same model year frame.

    I have no idea how much it weighs. More than some fatties, less than some others.

    I'm currently running a 1X11 setup on the bike and am almost ready to say that it was the best upgrade that I've made to the bike - though not quite. I like the gear range, but it does feel like I am shifting a lot - always trying to find the right gear. I also know that when I finally decide to build some new wheels that will end up being the best upgrade...

    The best thing about the Pugsley? Versatility. I ride the bike nearly daily as a commuter - year round. I also ride as much single track on it as I can and love hucking the jumps with it. It takes a beating.

    This isn't very useful because it's not really a searchable database, but I'll play.

    Manufacturer: Salsa
    Model Name: Bucksaw aluminum
    Production Year: 2015
    Frame Size: Med
    Overall Cost: I don't wanna know
    Condition: Almost 2yrs old
    Modifications: Everything except the rear shock. I built this bike from the frame up. Every part was specifically chosen for some reason. The only thing that's the same as a "stock" build is the rear shock and the frame itself.

    It weighs just over 33lbs with a burly fork, carbon hoops, and a dropper post.

    Manufacturer: Borealis
    Model: Yampa
    Year: 2015
    Size: Medium

    Built up from bare frame. HED wheels, Juggernaut tires, Next 1 by 10, Carbon post and bars, eggbeater ti pedals, XTR 11-36 cassette, Slr seat.

    Weight: 19.9 pounds. This will go up for winter because I ride studded D4's. It will go up for next summer too because the Jugs on this bike are the worst tire I have ever used regarding self steer. The ride is spooky at speed on an uneven hardpacked surface. I have played with pressure but higher did not seem to help and I won't go real low with those rims for fear of rim strike damage.

    I have an old ti Fatback that ranges from 22.5 lbs. to 26 lbs depending on wheels.

    Model Name: Alaskan Alloy
    Production Year: 2015
    Frame Size: Med (17")
    Overall Cost: Right around $1500 with pedals
    Condition: 18 months old
    Modifications: Swapped in Hayes stroker trail brakes, Wolftooth 42T cog, and added flat pedals. Currently running tubes on stock wheels with Bud up front and the stock Maxxis Mammoth on the back. Replaced saddle

    Weighs 33.4 with some trail dirt, less than a pound I would guess, so put it right at 33 complete and clean.

    I weigh 86,000 grams no matter which bike I ride. That said my Wednesday was light enough for me to lift it up onto a the podium at a local SS XC race.

    My Blackborow is right around 30lbs.

    I was concerned that might be too light, so I put a 2.5lb rear rack on it.

    Ouch, I could strap my Fatback to my back while riding my Yampa and still have less total bike weight than that....
    On another issue, it sounds like your rotor is not centered anymore and it's dragging on one side. Find the instruction manual for your brakes online and adjust as it suggests.

    My new carbon frame bike weighs more than my old Moonlander because of the Bluto, carbon Jones bars, and Onyx hub.

    Bluto:


    Carbon fork:


    Manufacturer: Motobecane
    Model Name: Boris
    Production Year: 2016
    Frame Size: 19
    Overall Cost: $600 new, $1400 (bluto setup), $1200 (carbon fork setup)
    Condition: New from Bikes Direct
    Modifications: 1x drivetrain, gravity dropper, cane creek 44/40 headset, kona 50mm stem, 35mm kona bars 760mm wide, vp vice pedals, removed inner rim strips,specialized saddle (replacing with a selle anatomica), carbon fork, 120mm rockshox bluto, carbon spacers, fsa compression plug, Clarks m2 hydraulic brakes, a set of surly nates ( going to be replaced with a 4.5 kenda juggernaut pro and a 4.5 120tpi snowshoe), new front wheel, Novatech hubs
    Stock Weight: 36.1lbs
    Modified Weight: 31.5lbs (carbon fork), 34lbs (bluto)

    Q tubes and lighter tires are on the way, I'm guessing I'll be around 29-30lbs with the carbon fork, and 32 with the bluto after swapping them out. New wheels will drop that weight another pound or so.

    My XL 907 Whiteout has 80mm Surly rims, 4.8" tires, tubeless, Hope hubs, Surly OD crankset, 2x10 drivetrain, SLX brakes, Jones bars, Thomson post and WTB saddle. Bike weighs 31 pounds.
    No idea what I have ointo it but I bet I could duplicate it for around 1500 bucks and make it even a little lighter with a 1x11 drivetrain.

    Carbon Chinese Fatty with DT Swiss Wheels

    Please List Your Fat Bike Weight-img_2589.jpgPlease List Your Fat Bike Weight-img_2578.jpg

    Brand - DengFu (Chinese Generic Brand) FM190
    Wheels - DTSwiss 80mm Rims/Hubs
    Tires- Dillinger 5 Self Studded
    Cranks-Sram XX1 Carbon
    Drivetrain- Sram GX 30 Tooth Wolftooth chainring 11-40 cassette (need to go 28x42 or 46 climbing in this deep stuff!)
    Post/Stem-Thompson
    Bars-SQLabs Alloy 15 Degree SweepX800mm
    Brakes-Shimano XT
    Grips-Suspension Grips
    Saddle - Ergon
    Fork-Chinese Generic Carbon


    WEIGHT - 26 pounds - Im amazed at how similar my frame and fork look to those bear claw bicycles carbon frames, they literally look identical, but anyways its pretty damn light for the 2 grand I paid for all of the components. Ive ridden it pretty hard in the summer/fall on dirt, just recently got to try it out on deep snow, and I have to say I'm pretty damn impressed especially with the Dillinger 5 tires, these things not only float descent, but really shine in the slop, ice/footpocked trails are no problem for these tires. My first fatbike was a 40 pound pugsley that I bought 14 years ago, i paid 3 grand for that bike, so its really amazing the difference that time makes on bike prices and how light this bike is in comparison. It really makes a huge difference trying to climb up deep snow on a bike this light, i couldn't imagine how nice it must be on that 20 pound borealis earlier down this thread!

    Framed Minnesota 3.0:

    I weigh about 145 lbs. The Framed is maybe a couple of lbs more. So, 147 lbs, give or take.

    Yeah, probably a few lbs over 30. But, I don't care. I love the bike.

    I have no idea and I don't care.


    I own 2 fat bikes a 2014 Mayor and an ICT.


    I don't have time to weigh them.

    Get out and ride.

    I only enjoy my fat our 4 winter months.
    33 pounds
    20 speeds
    Bud/Lou studded 100 gripstuds each.
    It is to ride as often as possible.
    90mm rims.
    Going light is against FAT.
    It is not a race car.
    It floats
    It grips
    It climbs
    It s a great winter fat !
    It is a Specialized fatboy 2017 basic.
    I took the Helga, a woman frame because a Real Fat should
    have a low frame.
