i'd guess around 23 lbs. backcountry stumpjumper ht. it's a burly beast. ready to ride means add a water bottle and a camelback. so... yeah. it's a heavy stumpy...

Why is that heavy? The Stumpjumper HT is about 26lbs (stock). My 06 Stumpjumper HT is about 27lbs with disc brakes. My Ellsworth Moment is 32lbs.

Wish I had a good recent pic. 35 lb Giant Rainier. No racks/panniers, it's all on my back. Lots of accessories/mods. More weight=more exercise

My C-dale HT is just under 26 lbs. My full suspension KHS team bike is just under 25.5, little modifications to either.

Road bike: under 18 lbs.

Don't have those yet. All I've got so far are rim strips, cable ends, and a Brooks saddle.
