- Inbred 29er weight question?
What would an inbred 29er with sasla cromoto’s and fairly standard kit i.e. Deore cranks/drivetrain and wheels weight?
I’m no weight weeney but don’t really want to build something thats an absolute tank. It will be replacing a GT avalanche at about 14kgs (31 lbs)ish.Posted 5 years ago
would be something like this:

Mine is built with on-one carbon forks, on-one wheels, SLX drivetrain with triple rings, hope minis, nukeproof stem, sunline flat ‘n’ wide bars, ardent/ikon tyre combo, controltech post and charge spoon saddle.
All in about 30lbs but that’s weighed using bathroom scales so probably +/-1 lb. Feels like it’s a very similar weight to my Five.Posted 5 years agoemac65Member
Yeah they aren’t light,but then that’s not such a problem unless you’re expecting to win races on it….Posted 5 years ago
Quite often makes me smile when I hear people talking about bike weight & components.How that something’s tooooo heavy, then you look at them & see they must be carrying a FS’s frame amount of weight around their gut alone….emac65Member
Couple of years back I built mine up for the road(just slicks & road cranks)for use over the winter & did several centuries on it.The following year my mate lent me his Ti Lynsky road bike,it was about 10lb lighter.I did about the same mileage as the year before,including the long rides…I was far fitter doing the rides on the heavier bike & then when jumping back on a proper MTB it didn’t feel like it weighed more than my car……Posted 5 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
This was about 26.5 lbs.
Forks are Singular Swifts.
TN719’s on Surly SS hubs & WI freewheel.
Thomson kit with carbon bars.
Running Smallblock8’s in the summer took it down another pound.
They arent the lightest frame, but they ride great.Posted 5 years ago
Rides better with a steel fork, & the difference between steel & carbon is not as much as youd think.
Have a SIR9 now, with mostly the same kit & thats 23.5 lb.
