- How heavy is your hardcore hardtail?
- Action JacksonMember
Weighed mine at 25lb with Whyte 19 ally frame, hope hubs/ztr rims, reverb post, xtr cranks, 1×10 gears and fox 140 forks! Rides a dream and people keep telling me to get a full sus but they always seem to be behind me going up and down. Think i should say they need a hardtail, only way!Posted 4 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
Soul with Float 140s, Zee 1×10, M4 brakes, Flows, UST Rubber Queens, Gravity Dropper; 26.8lbs. Started out a much more XC build but has since shifted over to stiffer, stronger and often heavier parts, which suits how I ride. Not too slow uphill, quicker downhill, when I’m on form! 😉Posted 4 years agoacehtnMember
My first one a 04 Spesh P3 weighed in around 37-38lbs.
Went to steel frames and still a burly DH spec build, dropped to 34-35lbs
Went to 853 Superfly styler deluxe 🙂 and some carefull changes but the same fork/wheels, depending on tyres 31-33lbs, Been running a triple butted steel Atomlab Pimp2 which is a similar weight.
When not doing DH racing, i got a nice Surly KM, haven’t weighed it but reckon it’s under 25lbs, SS and v-brakes, very nice for xc and pootling about.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
23lb ish for mine, i guess it may be called hardcore as it has 140mm forks, 2.35 tyres and seatpost dropper, i made it down Screel hill (nr castle douglas) last week without dabbing so yeah?, i’d consider it hardcore enough for me but i admittingly do not jump nor do i gnarr to the max dudes .
