    Mountain tandem base weight

    Tandems themselves are not light. As we know, mountain tandems are even heavier.

    I weighed our mountain tandem last night and it came across the scales at a hair over 46#.

    It is a Curtlo custom with 4 S&S couplers. larger steel tubes with no diagonal.
    MRP tandem rated fork.
    Jones H bar.
    ONYX hubs (heavier than most but bullet proof.
    Sun Ringel rims which aren't too heavy.
    WTB Nano tires.
    Brooks B17 Imperial and B17S Imperial saddles <- a bit heavier than normal.

    I just wondered what weights others have on their bare bikes.

    Hi,
    I can't tell it exactly, but I think my Cannondale MT4000 had something around 21.5kg, knowing however it had a bad ass downhill fork.

    Seems in line with what we have. The MRO fork is a brute too.

    Our ECDM with 27.5 plus comes in at a bit under 43 pounds with a Helm fork.
