    How much does your tourer weigh?

    That's without panniers, but with racks, fenders etc.

    Mine's 30lbs give or take, with rear rack, hanger racks on the forks. It's made from a Coventry Eagle 531 frame, which rides really nice.

    How about yours?

    Heavy tourer dressed out, dual front racks (don't ask), WITH tool kit, no water, no panniers, ABOUT 42 pounds.

    Light and fast rando ride tourer, front and rear racks, ready for blitzes on long weekends, about 35 pounds.

    lighter still, a credit card touring bike, 25 pounds.

    I guess it all depends, eh?

    i was just about to post this exact question, after putting on a front rack(rear rack converted).
    around 30lbs, or 14-14.5 kg.
    But hey, mine's aluminum! Isn't aluminum supposed to be lighter than steel?What a ripoff!!!

    Currently a T800 at 27 lbs without bags. Nothing on the bike that I would consider superlight but it is very far from stock

    Bizarrely, I have an old 5 speed carbon steel frame racer with steel everything (I have a bit of a retro thing going on), and that weighs about 26lbs. It's a smaller frame - 56 compared with 58, but not shorter length. I was seriously thinking of converting that to a tourer.

    I also have a raleigh 3 speed, which is aroung the 30lbs mark.

    Sometimes I wonder why I paid all that money for a 531 frame that a baggage handler cound dent with a sideways glance.

    My Soma Double-Cross with the 36-spoke wheels, rack, and freddy fender clip-ons is just under 25 lbs. Between two small panniers (2400ci), a trunk bag (+600ci), and a Deuter Speedlight pack (+900ci ) I can carry just enough for a three or four day loop. I love it. Ultralight is the only way to go.

    Mine is 28 pounds including full fenders, rear rack, 2 water bottle cages, pump, a bunch of tools, patch kit, and two spare tubes. I did take off the water bottles and handlebar bag before weighing. This is a 1980-ish lugged steel bike with a mix of vintage and new components. I was suprised that it was less than what you guys were posting so I re-weighed it on known good 50 pound spring scale, just to be sure.

    Fuji World - just under 25lbs, including rear rack but no pedals, off the shop floor, before I put fenders, cages, and pedals on and swapped the saddle for a B17CS and tires for Conti TT2000s.

    If I knew I woulda said. I figure it's still under 30, close enough for touring purposes since once I start loading it up it's kind of a moot point. I weighed it with a full commuter load, including panniers, clothes, lunch, laptop, handlebar bag & saddlebag, on the loading scale at work last year - it was around 45lbs.

    Unloaded, Machak (my Marinoni Ciclo) is 27 lbs.

    He is almost completely customized, and I've added a few slightly heavier bits because I preferred them.
