What is the weight of your bike, ride ready?

I have a 2002 Trek Fuel 90 Disc that weighs in at 31.61 lbs (measured with an Ultimate Alpine scale). Just curious as to what the "average joe's" bike weighs.

I don't know because I have never weighed it.

Why do you care about how much a bike you don't have to ride weighs?
