    How Much Does Your Hybrid Weigh...

    including the things you've bolted to it?

    My Surly CC weighs in @31Lbs.
    Does it matter?

    I sure wish you hadn't asked this one - with panniers empty, trunk full, full water bottles, lights and sirens - 54# - the way it's usually ridden. #With a full load of groceries, considerably more.

    This, for an '08, 61cm, Specialized Crosstrail....

    I think that this specification, is something I really didn't want to know..........

    About a metric ton! My trunk bag is loaded with tools, patch kit, pump, two u-locks and one cable. It also contains gloves, cash and other stuff.
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

    Good point about the frame size.
    My Surly is 58cm.

    The 31lb weight I cited doesn't include the plethora of tools, bags & refreshments usually included on every outing; just the bike itself along with what I've bolted or clamped (saddle, pedals, lights, racks, bells etc) to the frame.

    The last time I weighed the Trek it was 27 pounds... with my usual gear the weight goes up to around 40 as I carry a decent tool kit, several locks, water, pump, and my rain gear.

    My old Rudge roadster starts out at 38 pounds before anything else goes on...

    My lightest current hybrid is my '04 Pt Reyes @23lbs 10oz(18.5" I think). I've had a Fuji Absolute and Marin Fairfax that were both lighter though. Heaviest is my '05 60cm Dew Deluxe @28lbs 7oz.

    just wondering how do you guys weight your bikes? I always wanted too. But I don't think my bike will fit within the space of my bathroom scale.

    Weigh yourself on the scale. Then weigh yourself on the scale while holding your bike off the ground. Subtract your combined weight from your own weight without the bike.

    Combined Weight - Your Weight = Bike Weight

    I weigh 163. Holding my bike the scale reads 203. Thus my bike ('08 Diamondback Wildwood Citi) with rack, bell, & lights = 40 lbs. 203 - 163 = 40

    If they let you sure!

    I'd be curious what the 7.7 FX weighs. Or any of the FX's for that matter.

    Ooorrrrrrrrr.....you can do what I do. Picked up a digital fish scale that goes to 50lbs and also reads metric. Also nice for weighing things like components and tires. Found out that switching from Specialized Crosstrails to Marathon Supremes dumped like 1.25lbs of weight off my bike.

    With stock components, my 7.5FX weighed 23.43 lbs.

    With some modifications it was 21.22 lbs.

    With new wheels and tires I believe it is <20 but I haven't taken it to the lbs to get weighed.

    My 2004 Diamondback Wildwood with luggage rack weighs 37 lbs. Moving to a Trek FX this winter. Nice to see it's almost 10 lbs. lighter.

    I did the stand on the scale without bike, then stand on it with bike. According to that test my bike is right around 20lbs.
