    My 54cm Surly LHT with racks to include mount for handlebar bag weighs 33.3lbs.

    My tour partner's 2010 56cm Kona Sutra with 700mm wheels, and the same setup as my LHT except it doesn't have the mounts for a handlebar bag is 33.6 lbs.

    We weighed both of them the day he brought his home.

    My Randonee with stock rear rack, homemade front rack, and Planet Bike Hardcore fenders weighs 36.5 pounds.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.

    It weighs a lot less without its motor. Maybe I should restrict the fueling stops.

    One of the bikes I have been thinking of using for a weekend tour is my Novara Transfer commuter bike. It is just about ready for touring as is with fenders, rear rack, dynamo lights, Randonneur tires, etc. The internal geared hub and weight have been making me hesitant to try it. The hub I can probably get away with by getting a larger cog in the back (42x21 currently) but the weight I'm not sure. Last time I weighed it with the way it came stock was about 38lbs which now reading these posts doesn't seem to be too bad for a bike set up as I described.

    My Specialized Tricross Expert (aluminum frame with carbon forks and carbon seat stays) weighed 20.5 lbs at the shop when I bought it. The rear rack will weigh just over a pound. I actually contacted Specialized customer service yesterday about weight limits and they said 40lbs front and 40 lbs back are the limits - way more than I thought. I'm only going to have a rear set of bags and a handlebar bag, so my load will be much less, probably about 17.5 lbs including the rack and bags. This is for a CC setup.

    That was going to be my exact answer!

    One of the LBSs has an informal reverse weight-weenie competition. They keep notes on a whiteboard of the heaviest daily-use whips. I held top spot for about a week at 50.1 pounds, but then one of the shop employees built up some steel rims for his bike and scored ~54 pounds. Nobody has yet been able to bump him off the top spot.

    Our tandem weighs 43 lbs. with everything except panniers. Includes saddle and frame bags, rack, tools, lights, tubes, pump, spare tire, first aid, etc. That's 7 lbs. over stripped weight.

    WOW! For the great price of the Windsor, I would have thought "heavy", that weight is great too!

    My 54cm with brooks flyer, racks, and fenders is 33.3 lbs. Is that where the difference is; the brooks saddle? That is a heavy saddle, but worth it to me.

    I was in a bike shop last week and finally got a real look at the Brooks saddles. I have been thinking about buying one, but the weight has kept me away. Lately, I was thinking that the weight difference was all in my head and that I wouldn't notice it. So, in the shop, I picked one up and mistook it for a boat anchor! Heavy, and I do mean heavy. Maybe I'll pop for a titanium rail one...

    sbrdude, I would love to have the titanium rail B-17 but I just can't get myself to cough up that many $ for saving such little weight when I know where I can cut numerous pounds for free.
