    Apparently there is too much MTB talk on here so I just want to help with balancing things πŸ˜‰

    So how much does you road bike weigh?
    Mine is 16 pounds and 13 ounces aka 7,3kg
    XL frame with bottle cage and pedals

    17lb dead.
    I’ve had it down to 16.5lb with lighter tyres, it’s got some right hefty 25c “endurance” tyres on it at the moment.

    Not bad for an XL aluminium framed S-Works.

    Mine used to be a shade under 17lbs, now it has mudguards and 5 lights hanging off it – god knows!

    Not a clue. In the thousands of miles I have ridden it I haven’t really ever worried enough to weigh it. 2009 Genesis Flyer singlespeed by the way.

    Crazy-legs that is decent indeed considering the tyres. Columbus E5 tubing?

    Not that light, but not heavy either. Bet mine cost a fraction of the Look too!

    Damitamit , 7.3kg with TWO bottle cages! Very good πŸ™‚
    Mboy, it is a costly bike but I bought the frame and forks of the STW classifieds and sold my old frame on here as well to help with costs and I just used my parts that was on the old frame.

    17lb 6oz for my 58cm Litespeed tuscany, 21lb 8oz for
    My 853 steel bike thats with full mudguards. Twim bottle cages on both bikes aswell.

    7.3kg (without the cage and garmin sensor), since swaped the saddle so probably another 100g off that.

    mine weighs about 10lbs . . .
    more, than any of the other bikes in this thread.
    however i weigh about 12 stone . . .
    more, than most of the people in the uk . .
    (charge filter, discs, guards, lights, etc)
    feels ok to ride though, a 27lb bike is still light when its under me lol.

    ~6.6kg with pedals, two bottle cages and computer. The saddle pack with spare tubes probably just about makes it UCI legal.

    Mine is 16 pounds and 13 ounces aka 7,3kg

    7.6kg I’m afraid.

    Not got a pic of it online at the moment. Had one on whatever that photo-hosting site was that went bust but not on my active flickr account. It’s very similar to this (nicked off Google Images):

    Yes, E5 tubing, everything else is carbon – seatpost, stem, bars, full carbon forks. It’s got a full 10sp Dura Ace groupset and some lovely light American Classic Sprint 350 wheels.

    Just rebuilt it after a winter strip & clean so it’s immaculate at the moment, will try and get some photos before I get it filthy again!

    wow, seriously impresssed, that’s getting very close to tdf minimum weight.

    tdf minimum weight is heavy tbh (well if you hang about on http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/)

    Here’s my 6.6kg beauty. Pedalforce frame, Record bits. Under TdF (UCI) minimum weight, not silly expensive.

    Oh and 22lb 4oz for my winter Trek road bike, with bottle cages and chromoplastics. No wonder the Giant feels so fast come the summer!

    Btw, is there a minimum weight limit for MTB set by UCI?

    7.6 with pedals. Thought it was less than that but after a weigh in on the calibrated scales at work… still pretty zippy for the money.

    About 10kg I reckon but haven’t weighed it.

    Bloody heavy compared to the Β£1500 carbon Raleigh I picked up the other day.

    It’s one of these with some Shimano 520 mtb pedals on;

    Only cost me Β£330 so can’t grumble; sora with carbon fork etc.

    It weighs exactly the same as my 29er Inbred – that’s what I use,but with slicks on……

    ‘best’ bike is 15.4lb with pedals and cages, just to balance it I’m maintaining my own weight the wrong side of 14st

    I believe it’s the same as for road bikes – I doubt it’s an issue though, especially given that if anything race MTBs have got a bit heavier recently with the trend towards full-sus and/or bigger wheels.

    No idea what any of my bikes weigh .
    Is it important ?

    No, MTBs are not subject to any weight limitations.

    wow, seriously impresssed, that’s getting very close to tdf minimum weight.

    TdF min wight is 15lb (6.8kg) brought in at a time when riders were routinely drilling frames/parts to save weight, it was designed to stop them doing that for safety.
    However, it’s not kept up with innovation and it’s actually relatively easy to buy an off-the-peg road bike which is well under 15lb. Custom spec it and you can get to to 12lb without going *too* silly.

    They also brought in a rule to say that all the weight has to be fixed/structural to stop riders putting small lead weights under the BB.

    If only the UCI could actually concentrate on – ooh, I dunno – eradicating doping within the sport maybe?

    6.8kg… If I take the Garmin off, it’s below the UCI weight limit…

    @thisisnotaspoon

    just weighed my CAAD4 R500 and measured 9.1 kg πŸ™

    it does have two bottle cages and a computer/watch on it, but I’d love to work out where the rest of the excess is. It has a 105 groupset. Do you have carbon seatpost. bars etc – I dont. How to find those extra kgs?

    13.4 lbs without pedals for my storck.

    I’m 5’7″ and weight under 11st so it is a fairly small frame!

    No idea what any of my bikes weigh .

    Never used to think so but after peddling a heavy steel winter bike for the last 5 months and then swinging a leg over a bike weighing at least 2.5kg less I can say that yes it is important. Important may be the wrong description but the difference is incredible.

    No, MTBs are not subject to any weight limitations.

    I’ve double checked, and the UCI weight regulation doesn’t mention specific disciplines (unlike other rules) – therefore it must apply to all. http://www.uci.ch/Modules/BUILTIN/getObject.asp?MenuId=MTkzNg&ObjTypeCode=FILE&type=FILE&id=34033&LangId=1 – regulation 1.3.019

    I know this Neilywheel,and I was only half joking πŸ˜‰

    I love the difference when I jump on my summer bike ,but I have never weighed it,or the winter/CX/commuter/tourer .

    should have had a pic with the previous…

    You could shed a bit of eight if you slammed those bars and lost some spacers Matt! πŸ˜‰
