It depends on what kind of bike it is. For cross country riding, thats insanely heavy. For a downhill bike, thats about average I'd dare say.

Depends like everyone is saying. For a XC bike, uhh, it might be alittle heavy For an "all mountain bike" yeah, still pretty heavy. For a freeride/DH/DH race bike, it's not bad.

My XC stumpjumper FSR weighs 28 lbs. I would never ride a bike that's over 30. But, I don't do jumps, just XC.

Dunno, my full suspension bikes weigh 22 pounds and 25 pounds. They are perfect for me, wouldn't last long for downhill or freeriding though.

If it's a NEXT, that's actually light.
