- whats your AM/Enduro bike weight?
Aluminium frame – weigh the bike, disregard weight on scales, claim 28-29lbs
lol if i did that i’d end up cursing myself on the climbs when the extra weight slows me down.Posted 3 years ago
to be honest, i’ve always built up all my bikes to be a bit more DH/freeride orientated.
before you ask i’m happy with 26″, and seeing as a great deal of the upgrades on the bike have been very recent…i cant justify moving over to 650b yet (which would be something for the future) as it would involve a brand new bike of new frame, forks and wheels.
i should have said spec consists of…
marzocchi bomber 55cr
rock shox monarch rl
lx ht2 cranks
zee with 203mm/slx with 180mm
atomlab dhr rims, atomlab trailpimp rear hub/wtb laser dh front hub
it will have a blackspire shore seatpost back on soon
raceface diabolus d2 stem
renthal fat bar lite
odi tld grips (not pictured)
x-lite bar plugs
either maxxis ignitor 2.35 or panaraces fire fr 2.4
to be honest, with that spec i expected it to weigh more so i was pleasantly surprisedPosted 3 years agoamediasMember
31-34 depending on which tyres/wheels are on it on the day.
It’s at the point where swapping any bits for lighter ones starts to compromise its reliability, I’ve had it under 30, but slowly ended up putting weight back on to deal with failures.
Most people vastly under-estimate the weight of their bikes, especially ‘Enduro’ bikes in my experience…Posted 3 years ago
after slapping on some new brakes i finally got round to weighing the whole bike to see how heavy/light it is.
i new it wont be a whippet so i got the luggage scales out and found that its weighing in at 34lbs.
the bike has heavy but bombproof DH wheels and changing these for something lighter would lose a couple of pounds but i love the way it rides, but is this a reasonable weight?
Note: the brakes are now a Zee/SLX combi…and currently on Panaracer Fire 2.4Posted 3 years ago
what does everyone else ride? pics and weights please…torsoinalakeMember
My Prophet weighs around 15kg/34lbs (using a digital luggage scale)
2×10 SLX and XT
Bash and single roller
It’s too heavy really. Ditching the Pikes for the new version would save around 600g, but the finances aren’t going to allow that for a while.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Genuinely weighed, but with a cheap scale, mine comes in at 27.54lbs ready to race. That’s a Hemlock with Pikes, fat singleplys, 1×10 and ti or carbon everythings, nothing on it that doesn’t work or can’t be trusted. But the number still seems a bit low tbf.
Having said that I’m about to alp it, that’ll add probably 5lbs of wheel, tyre and fork.Posted 3 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Alloy Mk2 Nomad with Lyrik RC2DH, Iodine wheels, carbon cranks, bars and bits of gear/brakes, Minion & HR tyres, was 30lbs with a 2×10 X0 set up.
Got EXO Minion and HRII on there now which are heavier and more so that I put a fair bit of sealant in now. However I’ve gone 1×10 so no front mech, but then again added a Reverb. Haven’t weighed it, but feels heavy. Never notice it when riding though, except maybe some climbs if I compare it against my hard tail.
The EXO stuff is chunky also, 2.4/2.5 size tyres. I put them on for the alps a year ago and is maybe a bit OTT for normal duties (it’s only Surrey Hills in the main after all 😀 ).Posted 3 years agoScapegoatSubscriber

Weight is a curious one, sometimes considerable heft can be reassuring….there is plenty of stuff at the Devils Punchbowl in Hindhead that i think twice about going down on a mountain bike but will happily go down on 120kg worth of off road motorcycle….falling off doesnt bother me (or it) either, it feels bombproof, pick it up, fire it up and carry on….but the mountain bike can feel skittish and the light weight sometimes feels like its being bounced around all over the place whereas the motorcycle always feels planted.
The only bike i like to weigh is my road bike (8kg exactly if you must know, not bad for aluminium)….i couldnt care less what the mountain bikes weigh.Posted 3 years agojuliansMember
to go any lighter would make it faster up/along hill, but probably worse downhill IMO,and I’m happy with the balance as it is.
With the possible exception of swapping the coil fork for a new pike would take a pound and a bit off the weight, but it still might not be quite as good.

That’s good enough for ews, laps of swinley 😉 and ukge – off to Wales tomorrow for round 4 😀
I put on the stock wtb/shimano wheels and dual ply tyres for the Alps adds another kilo or so
the carbon wheels were the only effort to make it lighter for all day loops and teh longer 40-50k endruos with lots of climbing, going 1×10 also helps, loose weight though mostly did that for simplicityPosted 3 years agozerocoolMember
34.8lbs for a 2012 18 inch Orange Alpine 160. All stock apart from Reverb, XT brakes 1×10, SRAM X9 mech/shifter, Pro Atherton saddle, Ti Superstar pedals (nicked from wife when she stole my DX SPDs!) Renthal Kevlar lockons (not worth the money), 740 Kore Durox bar (again a hand me down from the wife) and 2 Ply 2.5 Minion DHFs (ghetto tubeless). Just about to switch back to single ply tyres for UK riding when I can afford some.
Next thing to upgrade will be the forks as currently standard Fox 36R and regularly push them past the limits of control.
Could be lighter (a friend’s Mondraker summum is lighter than it) but I’m skint and have a mortgage to pay.

28.6 lb. Could trim it with lighter wheels, pedals, brakes, tyres etc but I’m happy with a bit of extra weight for wide rims, sticky pedals, big tyres and powerful brakesPosted 3 years ago
