    What specs on your pitch?

    Mine has coil 36s and coil shock so I suspect it must be at least 33lbs.

    Mine is on average 140mm (160 front, 120 rear) and currently 31lbs with its lighter wheels and tyres in. Usually 33lbs. Wouldn’t have it any other way tbh, I’m a weightweenie but I can’t lose anything more off it without either making it less good or selling my arris down the docks.

    specialized Command Post dropper post

    at least 33lb, published weight for the medium was 15kg, mines a small but with a dropper post it must be easily that.

    Love it though, did 36 miles/4000ft ascent on it yesterday and a 20 mile round trip to Lee Quarry today on it.
    Its just too much fun to leave at home!

    PS I’m 5’2″ and weigh 9 stone so comparatively its a big lump.

    My Covert 29 has come in at 33.4lb on the bathroom scales. I’m actually surprised at that. Not because I was expecting anything different – its pretty much bob on to the spec weight, but because it feels lighter to ride than I would have imagined a heavyweight bike to ride and had assumed the on-paper spec over-egged the weight. Having said that the build is not particularly light – pretty much bog std parts, reverb, burley wheel set. Great bike though. 3 months in and loving it – though managed to damage my cassette last ride out (no idea how I did that) so on my 25lb hardtail tomorrow, so that’ll feel different i’m sure.

    Just weighed my pitch – i knew it was lardy but fookin ell 33lb!! fat bastard!

    What does yours 140/150mm full sus weigh?


    My ibis mojo was 24lbs when I got it first, 140mm rear, 150mm talas front, it’s now got middle aged and spread to a more portly 27lbs with heavier wheels, bigger tyres and a dropper. I really still do not like pushing too much weight up a hill 🙂


    around 14.5 kg with real tyres and seat post

    Mojo SL-R with DT Swiss 150mm XMM’s, not weighed it yet, but in the ‘mate picking it up in the car park’ test it scored ‘b*gger me that’s light!’


    2013 spicy 516 (160mm): 30.8 (bathroom scales) lbs


    aye, i had the same experience with my pitch.
    32lb for a small 2008.
    i wasn’t expecting it to be light but still.
    some heavy bits on it which don’t really need to be so beefy.
    makes me ask myself everytime why i need such a heavy bike.

    My Hemlock in it’s current AM-guise (Lyrik Coil 160, 150mm rocker, Hope/Flow/Minions) is definitely 33lb, maybe a bit more


    Bathroom scales test, on a concrete base and weighed 3 times on it’s own and then 3 times with me, and then me weighed 3 times to get the averages of each.

    Had 2 at 27lbs and 1 at almost 27.5lb…happy with that, it feels light and rides light so I’m not overly fussed…


    hey northwind, what do ride that’s 120 back and 160 front?
    is it ‘meant’ to be?


    No accurate weights but I’ll cheerfully carry my Zesty 314 for 2 hours to reach a good descent.

    Does that help?


    Large Zesty with a lardy Recon fork and Hope/Stans Flow wheels = 31lbs

    I can field that one as I have the same iirc…Hemlock. Swappable rocker: 120 or 150


    My heavily upgraded 09 zesty is 28.5 lbs and as it happens for sale !


    Nicolai AC pinion 650b,150mm travel,2.35 tyres and flow ex rims.

    32lbs and loadsa fun


    chrs nuke. thought as much. do you ride yours liek that? does it work?


    Why do we need such heavy bikes? For me its about fun and the things I am prepared to tackle on it that I wouldn’t want to on my lightweight hard tail for fear of it snapping. Yes, its more of an effort to pedal up hill, but no so much that I wouldn’t contemplate a whole day’s cross country trek on it. And at the end of the day i’ve no interest in racing up hills anymore. I’m quite happy to stick it in granny gear and saunter up to the top taking as long as I like and enjoying being out and about and saving my legs for the downhill. I enjoy my lightweight hard tail, its super efficient and covers ground quickly, but on a technical rocky section i’ll slow down and pick my way through it, on this i’ll point it straight downhill and go for it. Its great fun. It’s like having a Range Rover for general go anywhere ability, and a Lotus Elise in the garage for the occasion you fancy a quick blast.
