- whats everyones 29ers weighting in at? bike and frame weights please?
My old Inbred 29er was over 31lb, but then its frame was almost 6lb, it was running an Alfine hub, had handlebars made of steel… It certainly could have gone on a diet, rode nicely though.
Copped a feel of someone’s new Carbon Niner the other week, 22lb despite not particularly light wheels on it! Very nice…Posted 6 years agoStonerSubscriber

About 18lbs with those tyres on (Stouts)
Dips into the 17lbs with summer boots on.
Ti post, 230g aluminium bars, middleburns on UN54 BB for now. XTR brakes, superstar superlight hubs, charge spoon with cromo rails.
There’s 100g to be saved from the BB with a Ti axled one, and I could use a lighter chain as well but I like the reliability of the PC1.
Swift, low t mid 20’s I guess as it’s:

Rigid (OK not that light as its steel)
XTR cranks and E-13 chainring
Alloy bolts where possible
Ti bolts where thye’re not
Few remaining steel ones where they’re not Ti.
Hope hoops (ok, not that light)
Thompson stem/post (ok, not very light)
Specialized phenom saddle
Mini X2 brakes.
Giant Anthem = 21.5lbs, not bad for a ally FS 3×9 setup.

I have no idea, I’ve decided I’m not going to add it up…..
EDIT: that sounds a bit pompous – apologies. What I meant was, I don’t want to know how much it costs, if I do I’ll get all precious about it and not ride it. See Storck road bike hung in the garage as an example…Posted 6 years agoMostly BalancedMember
Tomac Flint, singlespeed with Manitou Minute fork, middling wheels, a bit of sealant in the tubes and carbon bars and seatpost. The bathroom scales say 24lbs and have me wondering how these sub 20lb builds come about. I know I could lose weight off it here and there but I’m struggling to see how it could get THAT much lighter and still keep all the parts required to make it a bicycle?Posted 6 years ago
Wheels and forks are where the weight adds up the most. I went to rigid and a light set of wheels on my race bike and dropped a massive amount of weight. Depends on whether you intend to race I suppose and also if you can stand riding without suspension
Also, it always amazes me how much difference a light chain can make.Posted 6 years ago
