Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

haha i dont know if this is even correct.. 20lbs it says for my bike? show me some bike + scale pictures~ because "pix or it didnt happen"

EDIT:
How to weigh DIY:

(bathroom scale)
-get on scale by youself (no bike)
-remember your net weight = A
-get on scale again with bike
-jot down weight of you + bike = C

weight of bike(B): B = C-A
-post.

15 lbs. is not that light. I have seen road bikes weigh in at LESS than 15 lbs (CF crank/saddle/frame/bars/etc) My fg weighs about the same as my road bike ~19 lbs. I bet you could get a pista concept down to 15 lbs no problem.

On the bathroom scale:

Me = 172lbs

Me + my Pista = 189lbs

But that doesn't seem right at all.

^ Why not? Were you expecting it to be more or less? If less... oh well. If more... nice!

I thought it would be closer to 19 or 20. It's a bathroom scale so I'm not putting too much faith in it. I just figured I'd give it a go when I saw this thread.

what building is this scale in?

i'm guessing my lynskey is about 17, and my trek conversion feels a bit heavier, but lighter than my roommate's clockwork, so maybe 19 or so?
