Around 25-30 pounds. Most bikes weigh about 28 pounds.

a wheel set will probably be about equal to your frame and forks. It's pretty much a package thing. Anything under 30 is reasonable.

yeah, but it probably has really funky racing geometry and is set up all weird. I'd be more than happy to ride a 20ish lb bike.

Bull**** unless it's a racing frame, even then...

For the past 30 years dang near every goofball has claimed to owned a Redline that weighed 18 lbs.
And it's always BS.

Nowadays it's around 23-32 it seems.

Either way, I still wouldn't mind a 20lb bike. To bad I'm still looking at ****ing $600 to get a bike frame to Crapida.
