My Faze is 29.0 lbs.

It has seriously heavy wheels and cranks. 26-27 lbs is easily doable.

Just shy of 180 with me sitting on it.

Unless I have the ride-to-work pack with the laptop and stuff.

185 for that.

So why is mine so heavy? 39 lbs (per bathroom scale method).

Giant Reign 2 frame built with a variety of light/heavy parts, based on how I ride and what I end up upgrading/downgrading to after breaking, etc.

I think my Marzocchi 55 R fork alone weighs 6+ lbs.
