    Bicycle Weight Budget

    I'm just curious- out of a bicycle's weight, how much does each part weigh? What are the differences between, for instance, a mid-80s bike boomer versus a modern CF bike? How much weight does each item weigh?

    Frame
    Fork
    Headset
    Handlebars
    Brake Levers
    Shifters (if not integrated with brakes)
    Front Wheel
    Rear Wheel
    Rear Cogs/Cassette
    Tires
    Tubes
    Brakes
    Cables & Housing
    Seatpost
    Seat
    Bottom Bracket
    Crankset
    Chain
    did I miss anything?
    Total
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Not what I'm looking for. I'm more interested in typical mid-80s bike boom stuff. The only thing in that list that approaches that is a 1988 531 Raleigh (there are other 1980 era bikes in there, but no brands I've heard of). I'm more interested in "typical" bikes from the 80s, not extreme weight-diet bikes.

    I must've misunderstood the "versus a modern CF bike" part of your post.

    Well, okay, that gives part of it. But it has virtually no info about the old stuff.

    Maybe I shoulda posted this in C&V.
