The 28.6lb weight of my zesty is with placcy nukeproof pedals, not the V8s, and XX1 cranks with XTR+42T cassette
real world bike weights ??
I don't think the bikes are a similar spec;
XT/XTR mix v XX1
Crossmax ST wheels v SRAM Roam 60 carbons
Formula R1 w/ 200 & 180mm rotors v X0 Trail w/ 180 & 160mm rotors
V8 pedals v XTR Trail
Easily a whole kg there at least.
A kilogram where? The wheels, pedals and brakes weigh much the same. Given the above info there can't be more than about 200g extra weight in those 3 combined.
14.3kg / 31.5lbs for this:
I just got curious about where weight could be saved: The Super Gravity Magic Mary is a bit of a beast, the SLX double+bash cranks are pretty solid, the CCDBair is a lot heavier than a smaller shock, and the Flow EX rims are on the burlier side for this bike. Swap them for appropriate but lighter parts and that would knock off just over a kilo. Take the pedals off for magazine weights and it's down to 12.8kg / 28.1lbs.
But it climbs better than my 26.5lb hardtail so I really can't see the point of any changes!
Love the big green cog. And what rotors are those?
Yea but what does it weigh with sensible tyres on
the rotors are these:- http://www.xcracer.com/shop/viewproduct.php?productid=299 ... they work so much better than the alligator windcutters i have used before.
as for the tyres... with ra-ra or ra-ro combo maybe a couple of hundred grams more. my reasoning for fitting them was more about clearance on the seatstay when fitting 650b wheels... with the thunder burts, there is very respectable clearance and they roll as fast as a fast thing.
i have a yeti sb-66 for gnarly stuff, so can be quite xc focussed with the scalpel.
So how much slower uphill is the SB66 (and what does it weigh)?
I haven't weighed the SB66 yet but it's not light. The frame is very heavy indeed even if the rest of the build isn't (pikes, arch ex/hopes, 1x10, haven carbon, reverb etc etc) BUT it does climb seem like a mountain goat, certainly better than the ASR5 which came before it, which was a disappointment against the Turner Flux that came before that.
I'm quite sure the Cannondale will romp away on the ups and the flats, but on the downs, the SB-66 magic really comes into play.

the cranks themselves really aren't that heavy - they're only 20g or so heavier than Xt cranks.
But the slx bash-ring weighs about 200g, which is a *bit* hefty.
ace looking bike btw!
Mine is a claimed 31.8lbs / 14.4 kg's. Pretty happy with that to be fair as I haven't made any concious attempt to slim it down. My last bike was comparable to the weight of a small moon so this one feels pretty lightweight to me.
28lbs on the button for my ragley mmmbop - 150mm pikes, hope\mavic 719 wheels, slx\xt drivetrain, hope tech brakes & reverb
Interesting to see so many AM FS bikes weighing similar/less, seems I'd need to spend a fortune if I upgraded to a FS frame and wanted to keep the weight similar.
Can finally join in as picked up from lbs and got them to weigh it.
Tallboy LTC in XXL, X01 drivetrain, reverb, crossmax STs and Pikes came in at 12.7kg with pedals, happy with that for a bike bike

I always love the "Just Under" guestimates "its Just a sliver under 24.9lbs"... is it bollocks! its 28lbs and you know it.
My 456 was 32lbs last time I weighed it but it has since acquired a heavier fork, front wheel and gone from 2x9 to 1x10 drive and I cleaned some mud off it... I reckon its probably gained a pound and a half...
Don't know or care what my other bikes weigh, they are mostly heavier than other peoples I like to think that makes me much more manly (While giving a perfect excuse for being a bit slow on climbs)...
9kg flat on the shop scales.
Seems about right - WC ones are 8.8kg with lighter wheels but heavier tyres.
My 96 was 22lbs with 2x10, so that seems about right!
Bought some £1.79 luggage scales from ebay.
Weighed the Kona Explosif 650b yesterday... 29.12 lbs
Liking the Kona Great to see them making nice bikes again.
