    So what are you folks getting for component weights?

    I just got my tires and rims in and well... i'm ok with the Nate and less so with the Folding Larry and one of my rolly-d rims.

    120tpi Foldable Larry 3.8... 1553 grams
    120tpi Wire Nate ... 1505 grams
    Rolling Daryls with cutouts... 836 grams and 915 grams

    I don't weigh my stuff because :

    1. It is a fat bike not a race bike.
    2. It will drive you crazy, just look at the WW section (lol).

    A few more tires weighed and I found a Larry foldable at 1396g as well as a Nate at 1409g. Still, the variance on the foldable larry's is ridiculous but then again, I guess I shouldn't be surprised given who the tire manufacturer for all these Surly labeled tires are.

    I am seeing a wide variation in cut out R.Darryls, some weigh around 840g and some weigh 900g.

    I like to keep an eye on weights of my components. I also make a point of not jumping into threads I am not interested in and saying how I am not interested in them. But people do that with weight threads all the time, I do not know why, it is kind of curious. Just sayin

    i'm of the opinion that any bike should be light and don't buy into this idea that fat bikes ahould be excluded form that....

    as for the variance in RD, i noticed that the older production run with more of a matte finish are aboot 30g or so heavier than the newer ones that have more of a gloss finish.
    your 29er may float over roots and rocks, but my superlight 26 just plain floats
