Average weight for trail/enduro bike?
Current spec. 32 1/2 lbs.
Now has Pikes, hans dampf front, bonty xr3 team ed. back. steel bolts to replace a few of the cheesy ali ones, powa guard and pig iron 400m post while waiting for new nice one and the steel spring too. shock has just been shortened to a 183mm eye to eye and valved, ported and feels rather nice 😀 bit heavy now though 😉 The nics that were on there before weren’t tough enough though as kept puncturing.Posted 4 years ago

I like Bionicons idea though, just wish the 160mm fork was less agricultural looking and had an uprated damper in it.
Wonder if you get Craig at Avalanche to fit one of his cartridges into it.
I’ve always wanted a light 160mm front and rear bike with dual crowns (proper forks, I don’t do x-ups and have no use for single crowns).
I’d actually be arsed to pay silly money if someone took that idea, did the frame in carbon fibre and Ohlins/Rock Shox/Fox designed the system around a semi active rear shock, with both forks and shocks having independently adjustable low/high speed rebound and low speed compression.Posted 4 years agoroverpigSubscriber
You had those bathroom scales calibrated recently roverpig?
Kind of. They give the same weight for me as I got at the doctor’s 🙂
It’s built fairly light: Fox 32s, 2×10, Hope X2 brakes, Hope BB, Hope Hoops running Nobby Nics tubeless etc. I’d be quite happy to add some weight to it if I needed it any stronger as I’m not really that bothered about weight, but it works just fine as it is for my trail mincing.Posted 4 years ago
Now wondering if I could get my hands on a Specialized carbon Enduro frame, a Lapierre E.I system, a bionicon fork (don’t need a travel reducing shock), an avy damper and produce some sort of unholy frankenstein bike. Time to start ringing people I know who might be able to get me the bits.

My Enduro Evo weighs around 34lbs, I dropped 1lb by changing the rather heavily sprung rear spring for a lighter one. And the new one is steel, I would probably save at least another 1/2lb by putting on a Ti spring.
There is loads of weight saving I want to do that will probably make the bike even nicer to ride, sixc bars, slx cranks and 821s will probably save over 2lbs.Posted 4 years agotpbikerMember
Enduro with Marz 55s, flows and xt/slx
Comes in at just over 33lbs if I remember correctly. Could get it lighter, but I’d rather spend my pennies on lightening my XC bike. Don’t think a lb here or there matters on a bike like the enduro, its never going to be quick up a hill (with me on it)Posted 4 years agomaxtorqueSubscriber
My Spesty yo-yo’s between about 28 and 30lbs, depending on build and what travel flavour i’m running it with:
Like that^^^ in 160mm mode, with the SuperGravity HansDampfs and 203mm brakes it’s a tiny smidge over 30lbs i reckon.
Light enough to be fast, fast enough to be heavy………Posted 4 years ago

I’m round about the 22lb mark. Scott spark 20 xt / xtr and fancy hoops. Do I really need a bigger big will I have more fun on the local stuff? Can’t quite fathom it? Am I missing the point?
You are missing the point of this thread I’d say, but as for your bike – if it does what you want, then it’s the right bike for you?Posted 4 years agomessiahMember
The Light-Bicycle Carbon rims have been an interesting experiment so far, I’m awaiting a warranty replacement for the rear. They ride brilliantly but my rear cracked rather easily… the mk2 versions are supposed to be stronger so I’m going for one of them. Fingers crossed.Posted 4 years ago
