I've never quite understood why people weigh their bike without pedals. I have yet to be able to ride a bike that doesn't have pedals.

So they can say it's lighter, obviously.

EDIT: Also, if you're comparing bikes, it doesn't matter, pedals or not, as long as they're all done one way, or the other.

R5, dirty, but ready to roll

Cervelo R5 (58cm) on Mavic 45 SLR / GP5000 S TR (setup tubeless)
Including, Garmin Rally Pedals, Lights, Cages, Pump, Dynaplug and Garmin Computer.
So, ready to roll!

17lb 4oz




Would have been lighter, but it needs a clean.
There has to be at least 0.5oz of dirt and grit!

Subtract
11.3oz for the pedals
if you must.

19.8 lbs (lbs Park scale) as pictured. This is after getting rid of the stock boat anchor crank, and changing out the brakes. New wheels, this year, should drop the thing to < 19. Light enough for me.* Shifter/cassette change as well, but that will be insignificant when it comes to all-up weight.
*It already is; I just want a nice set of wheels for it.

My aluminum frame folding bike weights 24 pounds. I was surprised to know that too, since it was marketed as a light bike. But I am not complaining because it can ride it long-distance, fold it and use public transport when I get tired of pedaling.

My steel rocklobster, ready to ride, weights in at 20.5lbs. Either with saddlebag and road tires, or no saddle bag and cross tires. My single speed motobecane with carbon rim upgrade still weights 25lbs. Cannondale trail 2sl is 26lb fully equipped. I'm hopeful I can get a new set of wheels built for the rocklobster for cross season that'll take a bit more off, would like to get it below 18lbs.

Bruce Gordon Rock and Road Tour with toe clip pedals, cages, tool kit, racks, 50mm tires tips the scale at 34lb.
It carries about the same in gear, food, clothes, etc. on tours.
Yours truly adds about 140lb.

GT grade Caron elite 22lbs 3oz+ pedals+tools+phone+snacks=23lbs 15oz.
I am tubeless
All that plus me = 238lbs 9oz!
My weight is why I am not to concerned about component and bike weight. Yes, while that placed a role when I was more fit and racing but at almost 57 years old, comfort and frame compliance is much more important lol.
This is also why I am not against a planned ride with a nice buffet as the meeting point!!!!!

From 2017:
Weighing In...

1997 Nishiki Blazer 49.5 lbs
1984 Nishiki International 32 lbs
2015 Charge Plug 39 lbs

Since then I put drop bars on the Blazer which saved about 5 lbs.

I also added a
Dahon Boardwalk 20" folder which is about 30lbs equipped
16" Dahon GetawayV, also 30lbs
2006 aluminum/carbon Felt F86 which is about 19lbs

I myself dropped 9 pounds since 2017. I think that's due to less muscle and less food intake due to a shorter daily commute, less distance riding and age (now 62).

I had never weighed any of my bikes either, until I was gifted a Park scale that is hanging from a beam in my basement. Now I am weighing all kinds of stuff.
Anyway, all my bikes have large frames, and ready to ride, with pedals, the heaviest is my 71 Schwinn Sports Tourer at 28lbs 15oz, the lightest is my 91 Paramount OS at 22lbs 8oz.

That's interesting. I bought a 60cm '91 Paramount OS frameset awhile back and built it out with new 105 5800 components and Mavic Open Elite rims with 105 hubs. It was only maybe a ounce lighter. Depending on what scale I used.

Nice riding bike. I gave it away (to my younger son). Wish I'd kept the Selle Italia saddle I put on it.

I agree on the ride, I got mine as a used frame on eBay, and built it up with a mix of Dura Ace 7400 and Campy, mostly Dura Ace though, Velocity A23 rims, and a Selle Italia titanium Flite saddle.
And since Marc Mueller very graciously signed the frame, after Waterfords last ride, I gotta keep it.

You don't have to be a weight weenie you aren't a pro rider. Only in the pro cycling world is weight a serious issue. Where just your bike being 500 grams heavier than your competitors could mean the difference between first place and no place.

My tandem weighs about 50 lbs.

But my wife weigh in about 250 lbs combined. So, 300.

We should ask like the airlines should: passenger & luggage combined. That might be meaningful.

Be that as it may, some of us who aren't racers still enjoy making our bikes as light as possible. It's a fun endeavor. I spent the pandemic lockdown shaving 2 pounds off my bike and enjoyed the challenge immensely.

Is the Cerakote finish as durable as it appears to be (assuming that that's a recent photo)? If so, it was a good move. Bike still looks gorgeous.

Your response is much more charitable than mine would have been. Fortunately, I thought better of posting it!

That photo was taken after its 12 mile maiden voyage home from the builder, but it still looks great. There is a now a little scuffing behind the seat tube. It happened because the rear wheel came dislodged due to the QR lever not being tightened sufficiently by me. It might just be a case of rubber that needs to be washed off well. Otherwise, no chips or scratches.
