    The most important weight is the big lump sitting on it πŸ™‚

    Crkey – I only have bathroom scales. Scaredypants – I got 19lbs too but it feels much heavier than that…..

    Fast haggis – I’ve lost 13lbs sin July and still going…

    no way 19lbs, scales are way off. Frame is probably 1.3 -1.4 kg, heavy forks, rotors , stem, bar , groupset etc. I would say more like 23lbs

    I’ll bid 24lbs. No way is that anywhere near 19.

    Grips?
    Rim tape?
    Which model of Nobby Nics?

    I’ll guess it’s the weight of a medium badger, male.

    Ah. Renthal Kevlar grips, Stan’s yellow tape and non tlr Nics, triple nano Evo.

    Not seeing 19lbs, more like 21 and a bit of change.

    If you’re in Space the weight is zero.

    Low 20s, daft to try and get closer than that tbh but if I had to, I’d say 23lbs.

    Sort of. You’d have a tiny (yes, negligible) weight if you are within the gravitational pull of a planet/star/astroid/comet/lump of whatever/lost aliens πŸ˜‰

    22.75lbs … or sensibly light. I have something similar – just get out and ride it and don’t worry about a few lbs πŸ™‚

    ~23lbs also, or on my scales, ‘wgas there’s nothing heavy on it and some stuff may need to be beefed up’
    19lbs, no chance )

    The number is always 42.

    The only problem is finding a suitable unit for the number.
