    I'm 6'3" and weigh 275 lbs. We don't do "light" on my planet.

    1986 Raleigh Technium 460 is about 23 lbs.
    1986 Schwinn Tempo listed in the Schwinn catalog at 22 lbs. and it feels like it.

    I picked up an old aluminum mountain bike that my inlaws bought for my son about 5 years ago. It weighs about as much as both of the above together, I couldn't believe it.

    '72 PX-10 that some fool drewed the RD hanger off of. So I outfitted it with Shimano 600 RD and FD, 600 brake set, lightweight wheel set, lightweight Ti rail Flite saddle. Original Stronglight crankset to add just a touch of balast. When all is said and done, it weighs in at a hefty 19.6 pounds. Most of my other lightweight C&V rides clock in around 22-ish pounds; the medium weight rides are in the 26-28 pound range. Somewhere along the way I decided to document all of my bike weights down to the ounce. Turns out none of that really matters as much as how much I enjoy the ride quality of the bike.

    My Ron Cooper weighs 21.5 pounds with decent kit and should get lighter with the new wheels I am building... it is pretty much the same weight as my 1973 Gran Sport which is a fixed gear.

    it never occurred to me to weigh any of my bikes. Maybe my touring bike when it was fully loaded, but that's about it.
    Mmmm, bicycles.

    I'm hoping to come in under 20lbs with my Ellis-Briggs build. I think I should have a pretty good chance if I can find some nice light weight tubular rims. Otherwise my winner for a "complete" bike right now is the Club Fuji. The catalog says it's right on 22lbs.

    One question of interest I have since I think I'm going to be getting a newer compact crank-set anyway - Is there actually much weight to be saved with a newer crank-set than the general middle of the road quality aluminum ones that I've always had on my C&V bikes?

    If that's a steel freewheel I'm not buying it. Let's see it on the scale.

    Kind of surprising with steel caged pedals.
    Maybe CX18 rims... those were pretty light...or GEL280's...

    Once again, it must be the scales that I am using. Not one of my vintage steel bicycles has ever come in under the twenty pound mark. If I want my vintage iron to come in under twenty, I must change the iron(steel) to aluminum.

    I do try to understand how some people can have a bike, that is identical to one that I own, and their bike is almost four pounds lighter than mine.

    That is one reason I bought a digital scale so that I could accurately measure the weights of my bicycles. And measure weights, I did. If you are at all interested, have a look a the Actual Bicycle Weights page on MY "TEN SPEEDS". Not many under twenty pounders there...

    Some of these weight claims seems suspect. Robbietunes look legit b/c he has some light wheels and parts, but I don't know about that Guerciotti especially since it's a 57cm frame, some of the parts don't look particularly light like the pedals and seat.

    I have to admit I was surprised when I put it on the scale too, but I knew it was my lightest bike. Occasionally when I jostle it on the scale I get a reading of 20.1 but mostly it comes in at 19.15 when it is hanging and touching nothing around it.

    Using the bathroom scale method, I get 18.5 lbs out of the Legnano.
