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.Posted 4 years agonickheadMember

… 31.5lbs (hopefully a little less by the end of the week with tubeless). Heavier than standard build, but also a bit burlier/cheaper.Posted 4 years agomuddydwarfSubscriber

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.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
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.Posted 4 years agoDickBartonMember
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…Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
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.Posted 4 years ago
