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)

What does your bike weigh?

Since we don't have enough to be self-conscious about. If you know the weight of your bike(s) post 'em! Not necessarily as a competition or anything because I know a couple members have 13-14lb bikes () but i just thought it would be interesting.

Me:
Soma Rush: 18 lbs
Schwinn Traveler: 26 lbs (in stock roadie mode) I had it down to 21.5 when it was fixed.

Is that verified on a scale? Even with the H+Sons?
Wonder what mine weighs?

Little off topic; was at the LBS the other day and they had a Cervelo S5 with Reynolds RZR's. Sub 10lbs complete.
My jaw hit the floor when I picked it up

My Langster with all the bits replaced weighs about 17.9lbs. It would be lighter (considering how much I have spent so far), but my wheels were built to commute every day.

So far with 20 bikes, I'm not going to list them all, just lightest and heaviest:

Lightest: Wabi lightning FG 42cm with 650c wheels is 15 lbs

Heaviest: Schwinn Speedster from 1970s with 3-speed IGH is 46 lbs

I don't have quite 20, but I'll do the same:

Pinarello with sewups on : 22 lbs, 23 lbs with everyday clinchers.
Western Flyer : haven't weighed it but has to be up around 50 lbs.
Lightest singlespeed : Novara Aspen MTB : 24 lbs with 1.95" knobbies. Should get a little lighter after single chainring and single cog setup.

I'm sure my 61 cm 29er would break a scale if I tried to weigh it. Unfortunately I just have a 1000g digital scale. I weighed my other bikes at my lbs

That's what it weighs with nearly empty panniers. It isn't so bad uphill because I set some good gearing 28/38/50 x 12-32. Every Monday I have the bike fully loaded (~60lbs overall) and I do fine with the middle ring. The lowest gear is crazy; on steep hills I feel like I'm going to flip the bike backwards

I haven't weighed all my bikes but my macaframa is sitting at 14.94 pounds right now and my rush hour is somewhere in the neighborhood of 22 pounds if I remember correctly.

Funny this thread should appear now.
I needed a new mouse for my infernal computator here and as I strolled up to the check-out, they had
Samsonite luggage scales for $9.00 near the register.
I just came in from the garage after weighing 3 bikes that I have not put away for the winter.
1994 56cm Fuji Absolute townie, w/axiom fenders, suspension seat post, adjustable stem, townie handlebars, original steel crankset, axiom rear rack and multiple safety and headlights = 33.5 lbs.
1968 24" Columbia, all steel everything, basically as it left the LBS when purchased new = 34 lbs.
1996 24" Mongoose Switchback MTB w/Blackburn rack, Truvative triple crankset, Shimano Deore XT components, Sun rims and Tioga 26 x 1.5 slicks = 28 lbs.
I was really suprised that the Mongoose was the lightest.
