    They're also available under different brands for the same hardware. Bike scale and the table top scale

    The REAL weenie folks get the table top scales with the 0.1g resolution.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread

    Are you looking for table top scales or hanging scales? If a table top scale what sort of resolution are you looking for? .1g or .5g or 1g? With more accuracy comes more price!


    Here is an excerpt from my blog (I did a table scale shootout for reference) ...(Yes, I do sell scales and yes I have had Classified Ad multiple times...)

    Some basic needs to be a weight weenie:

    1) a decent hanging scale to measure heavy frames and finished bikes, currently only the Ultimate Alpine Scale meets those needs, Park Tools did just release one, so there will finally be some competition. Yes, their are some fish scales out there you could use but they are not as accurate nor as useful as a Ultimate Alpine Scale Digital Hanging Scale aka the UBS Hanging Scale.

    2) a tabletop scale, aka a kitchen scale, my faves are the My Weigh companies scales, here is a breakdown of their scales by accuracy (the best dollar per accuracy is the My Weigh i2500):
    +/- .1g accuracy: i2600 and i5500
    +/- .5g accuracy: i2500 and i5000
    +/- 1-2g accuracy: 3001 and 7001
