oh well, first number weight in grams, last number weight in lbsPosted 8 years ago
Nice bike, but you really need to get out more!
Its cool, i get out plenty, just when i was stripping my old bike and cleaning the parts to swap over to the new frame I figured I might as well weigh everything. I ain’t no weight weenie but its good to know what everything weighs when considering upgrades.Posted 8 years agoSinglespeedpunkMember
Solitude 29er (4.52lbs frame only) drop bar singlespeed with On-One carbon forks, Phil Wood / DT TK7.1 rims, WTB tyres, Thudbuster post and other reliable but not really light kit = @27lbs Designed for all day / multi day rides with bivvi kit (another 10-15lbs) and minimal maintenance.
OS Bikes Blackbuck 29er EBB (5.4lbs frame only) with Juicy 7’s, Mav SC32’s, Hope SS hub / DT X470 rims, WTB Exiwolf / Stout tyres with slime tubes, Mary bars, CC Thudbuster post, cheap Race Face cranks @29lbs ish Designed as my hooligan bike for messing about on, ie 3-4hr rides with the club in the Cotswolds / FoD.
I know I could get them lighter but only at a cost (financial, reliability, maintenance) and TBH I would not ride any better 🙂

Weighty for a hard tail. Hopefully someone will prove my scales are out in which care I don’t need to diet!Posted 8 years agoavdave2Member
Thorn Catalyst around 32 pounds. Rohloff, Magura Oder forks and a Son Dynohub don’t make for a light bike when you start with a steel frame built for durability. I only weigh a hundred pounds more than it myself. I don’t find the weight an issue for most of my riding which is usually under two hours but by the end of a three hour ride on Friday the final hill, the steepest of the ride, was hard. Long term plan is to get a Van Nicholas Zion Rohloff frame and try to lose a bit of weight with that and a few component upgrades. In an ideal world I’d like a 25lb Rohloff equipped hardtail.Posted 8 years agoAnthonyMember
OP, be pleased to know your FSA headset is lighter than King’s £110 offering 🙂
(presuming that includes topcap/bolt and star fangled nut)
I’m hoping to break the magical 10kg when my Simple arrives in June.
SLR, Olympic Rims/rev spokes, Easton ec/ea90, XTR, Chris King, Mini X2 Pro, Racing Ralphs, foam grips ;-)……
Not sure if it will, but here’s hoping.Posted 8 years agojim the saintSubscriber
I haven’t weighed a bike since I gave up racing in my teens. Anyhow on the bathroom scales mine comes out at 28.1lbs.
At first I thought bloody hell I could set up a full-susser that would weigh less, then I remembered that I’d have to maintain pivots and bushings and have another springy bit to tune and maintain as well. It might not be the lightest but at least there’s less to go wrong.
Anyhow after looking at the spec of rs’s Alpine I realise that it could be heavier as mine is a similar spec and 2.5lbs lighter.
It’s a NS Bikes Society frame, 2008 Manitou Minute IT with 20mm axle, mainly X9 spec with a Stylo chainset and XT discs and not a bit of carbon anywhere.Posted 8 years ago
