    Just wondering what the consensus is for the average weight of a mountain bike?

    With in my circle of riding friends? 30-32 pounds. . . for a hard tail, spec'd for hackish XC, and with 4 or 5 inch forks. . .

    Average weight based on what? Sheer number of bikes out there? Lots of ways to look at it.

    Let me see. My hardtail weighs 27lbs. and my full suspension bike weighs 27 lbs.. That makes the avg. wt. of my MTBs 27lbs..

    Seriously, if you only were to include actually dirt-worthy bikes, all could really say is that most of them weigh anywhere from 25#-35#.

    Whatever. Who really cares that much?

    Well, my FS XC bike weighs 23.5lbs...but that's nowhere near average. It's all over and depends on the type of bike you're looking at. Weight weenie XC hardtails can't be compared to 8 inch DH bikes.

    What type of mountain bike? A rigid high end Ti single speed might tip the scales at 18 lbs, while a downhill rig might weigh twice that.

    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    My bike is 25.03 lbs.

    I think it's a bit heavy for a Ti XC bike, but I'm heavy, so it probably doesn't matter.

    I think your facts are wrong, I'm not tying to be rude but I'm just saying. An ibis tranny with Hope hubs, ZTR wheelset, and thirteen cranks, and set up as a single speed weighs 19 lbs. So I don't know how a full suspension bike could way that much even with XTR components
