Weight?

I was reading an interview with Dave Mirra and he was stoked becuase he had just got his bike to weight 23lbs 9oz which is about 10.8kg. Which i dont think is that impressive as my friends bike weighs 10.1kg. You would think someone like Dave mirra would be able to have a bike as light as he wants. I want to know how much your bike weighs and the weight of any other pros bikes.

My bike weight about 12.2 kg. But im poor.

We use pounds here, and he does have it as light as he wants... he rocks 4 pegs.

Yeah, I think he has a crapload (4, and 2) of pegs and brakes on his bike. Plus, if you get a bunch of super light components they won't be strong enough, and he probably doesn't want to die because something snapped when he was riding it.

i didnt think of pegs.

do you know how much any other pros bikes weigh? and how much do yours weigh?

and i know you use pounds there which is stupid and not metric but one day you lot will learn.

10.1kg = 22lbs 2oz
12.2kg= 26lbs 8oz

My baby is somewhere around 28-30. I've never weighed her though, so i'm not sure.

Maybe next time i'm at the shop i'll weigh her on the cool scale they have for bikes.
