    all this talk about weight has got me obessesed again. Im no weight weenie...but i prefer a sub 20 lb bike.

    seems to me that steamrollers and iros are prolly a bit on the heavy side....yes/no?

    do y'all have light bikes?

    mine's just under or just over 20 depending on the scale. Besides the titanium railed saddle, every component on there was added because it was inexpensive and/or solid. I'd like a set of light wheels or maybe a lighter/sexier crankset, but I'm pretty satisfied with everything as is.

    My red bike is probably 21 lbs or so.
    The Kona cruiser is 25-ish.

    Road Fixie

    IRO Mark V Pro - Level hubs, Nitto bars... 20lbs even
    IRO Jamie Roy - Bontrager Carbon fork, OS bar/stem, lighter build wheels... 17.5lbs
    Surly CrossCheck - Just about 20lbs


    Mountain

    Bianchi PUSS - Sibex ti fork, Hope discs, White wheels, Profile carbon cranks... 19.25lbs
    Dean Colonel SS - Dean steel fork, Avid mech discs, WTB/Spot wheels... 22lbs

    Those are real weights, none of this bathroom scale 14lb steel bike BS that I see on forums sometimes...

    Ok, how do you weigh your bikes then? I want to weigh my bikes, but don't have a scale and 60 bucks for a digital scale that you hang a bike off from is a bit much for a one time thing.

    Last time I counted mine it weighs around 20. She is an old 80's japanese conversion with cheap parts.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Old School Bianchi Conversion: 24.6 pounds at the LBS.

    A road guy saw that and scoffed at me.

    I'm saving a D cell for him.

    I weigh them on a $60 digital scale that you hang a bike from.

    Not trying to be elitist, just correct. I've seen plenty of posts of bike that are clearly weighed wrong on the internet. 14lb bikes with mediocre components come to mind... Just look around fixedgeargallery for some fanciful weights.

    As for the Jamie Roy being lighter than the Mark V, it's the whole build. Cranks, wheels, bar/stem, fork. Frame weight doesn't vary THAT much between bikes. The highest priced carbon frame out there are 2.5lbs or so, where the IRO bikes are 4lbs or so. It's all in the build.

    Just under 20lbs for me, not an exact measure, but stand on a scale without your bike, then with your bike, subract the smaller number from the larger one. Bingo

    my bike was roughly 23lb set up stock as a 7sp triple...
    so minus chainring, rear brake, levers/shifters, derailleurs, cassette, etc etc etc... maybe its 20lb flat? (optimistically)

    my steel vivalo comes in at a little over 16 with drops and sew ups.

    i'd trade stiffness for weight anyday, though.

    The Bassofixie comes in at about 17 - maybe a little less now that I lost the brake and lever.

    One of our former employees weighed his bike every time he made an adjustment to it.

    About 22lbs last time I was in the bike shop. Not sure how accurate that was, though. I blame my steel bars.

    My bike starts out pretty light, but then I fill my military surplus bags with all kinds of crap so I can be prepared for (uh, what did Trekkie call it?) nuclear infusion with acid rain?

    You never know.
