My new Marinoni just weighed in at the 17lb mark with the pump, computer and HRM still attached.

Sure beats the 30 lb I have sitting down the basement.

My Trek weighs around 27 lbs with the saddle bag. Maybe 26 lbs w/o. I'd like to get lighter components, but my gf's Raleigh M20 needs them more than the Trek does.

I believe my there is a 40-45 pounder on my uncles garage. Its a vintage bike. The one with a tank beneath the top tube. It was painted green and white.. Its a single speed with baloon tires(i think that's what they call it -- 2.125")

My MTB (Kona Kula Scandium, XTR, SID Team) weighs about 21lbs.

My future Cannondale road bike will hopefully be less

Some people use commercial grade hanging scales and just hang the bike by a wheel.

Actually, you can use a bathroom scale.

[1] Weigh yourself on the scale and record the number.

[2] Pick up the bike and stand with it on the scale.

[3] Subtract your own weight.

This is how I did it. Digital scales are easier to read of course and some of them have a "zero" feature so you just zero it after getting on the scale and before picking up the bike.

My main solo bike weighs @25 lbs; it's a steel road bike with fenders, generator lighting system, built of straight-gauge 531 with mostly Shimano Ultegra parts and quill stem/steel fork combination. Our tandem weighs maybe 38 or 40--divided by two that's two pretty light solo bikes. I seriously question the intelligence of people who weight-weenie tandems--there are a few on the road around here I'd be afraid to ride behind.

Ahah...I knew it...you would have to have quite a bit of carbon and ti to get the weight of that bike down that far. And with how big you go thats just not an option

Just kidding but cool I was worried I needed to put my bike on a diet.
