    Average Weights Of MTBs

    since a lot of people come here and say "what should my bike weigh" (my favorite is how much does a mountain bike weigh) i thought it would be easier to just have a poll where people can check off how much it weighs, saving the need for questions like above. half of the choices are FS, and the rest HT. since there are only 10 possibilities, i cant offer exact weights. i thought this was a good idea, maybe not.

    This is the weight forum.... therefore your bottom #s should be more like <18 lbs for hardtails & <22 lbs for full suspension bikes....


    Just my 2 cents...

    your intent is good.....the major selection bias you have going is only people visiting the weight weenie forum can cast a vote thus, right off the bat your are likely under reporting average weights of mtbr folks's bikes but interesting nonetheless and at least give a crude picture of what peoples' bikes in this forum weigh

    Depends.
    Just by changing tires/tubes I can have a 6.5 pound swing.

    Can drop another 1.5-2 pounds by using the rigid fork.

    And I do make these changes often.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
