Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

How much do you weigh with all your gear?

I weighed myself today, with normal clothes (cycling tights underneef), bag, lock, helmet, etc. And came out to 18lbs over normal weight.

Crazy!

Lets see: Hiking boots, Flannel lined jeans, North Face Denali jacket, Windproof outer shell, Gaitors, Gloves, Hat, Bag (2x Tubes, ajustable wrench, allens, pump, 2 patch kits, liter of water, extra gloves, socks, and batteries, a can of beer or two), U-lock, Headlamp....

I bet it is close to 40+ lbs vs. my normal attire.

It lightens up to just the weight of my bag as summer comes.

I went across the truck scales at work once:

265 - self = 70 - bike = 30 - cloths, food, rack, panniers = 8 lb (battery for lights)

130-140 here depending.

When riding around town/to skool, the chrome bag with locks, legal pads, small amount of food and flat tire stuff weighs around ~15-20?

Sometimez I carry heavy Chem Phys or Calc books that weigh 20-30 lbs each so thats a different feel entirely.



If I am going out on a group ride or for a solo workout then the heaviest things are always the inner tube/compact pump and water if I am bringing a significant amount.
