Thought i would start a little contest on here to find who has the lighest and the heavest bike!

To find the weight of your bike its easy. Get your scales you use at home to weigh yourself, first weight youself and write down your weight. Then step on the scales holding your bike. Once you have both figures, minus your weight from the weight of yourself and your bike and that leaves you with your bikes weight! Easy

I will get the ball rolling with my ride which is a 2009 Trek 8500 which comes in at 25kg

1) MarcBC @ 21.92lbs
2) MysticalSnail @ 25lbs
3) Ibbo68 @ 28lbs

    21.92 lbs but it does not matter as I weigh 253 lbs!
  • The old girl weighs 14.55kg.
    I know this because I took her into my work to weigh her on the digital scales in our dispatch area. I'm off to Morzine at summer and only have 35kg to play with, and that includes bike, bike bag, kit, clothes and spares.

    I have probably the heaviest scandium framed bike on here, at 13.1kg :roll: Still got heavy wheels and drivetrain to sort out.
