Real-World bike weights
#1
We've all seen the question 'How much does X bike weigh?' posted all over the 'net and, maybe you have wondered that yourself. Shame on you.
We all know why Mfr's don't publish weights. But, I thought it might be a cool resource if we had a thread that was all about bike weight as an Out-of-Box, built as supplied by the Mfr, reflectors included, Ready for the Sales Floor. Members with new rides, or wrenches at LBS's, anyone with access to a good scale and willing to share info here, please do.

I took the following weights from a Park Tool DS-1 clamped in a stand. All are 2011 model Treks...

ROAD
2011 Trek 2.3 52cm T H2 19 lbs 9 oz
2.1 52cm T H2 20 lbs 5 oz
2.1 54cm T H3 20 lbs 11 oz
1.5 56cm T H2 22 lbs 0 oz
1.2 54cm T H2 22 lbs 0 oz
1.1 60cm C H2 23 lbs 2 oz
Lexa S 50cm T 21 lbs 9 oz
Lexa 54cm C H3 22 lbs 6 oz

Hyb/ Cross
2011 Trek FX 7.3 17.5" 24 lbs 11 oz
FX 7.3 13" WSD 23 lbs 10 oz
FX 7.2 15" 25 lbs 10 oz
FX 7.2 13.5" WSD 25 lbs 1 oz
7100 17.5" 25 lbs 0 oz

MTB
2011 Trek 6000 21" 31 lbs 2 oz
4500 18" 32 lbs 4 oz

ye that's good real world info. The most manufacturers did post weight in the old days 70-90 . Now they do not want you to know this.

My 1985 Fuji del Rey weights 24.4 lbs close to brochure listing .
My Schwinn High Plains Aluminum is 27.5 lbs again close to catalog listing.
The top line Schwinns weighted 20 -22 lbs.

This is for nakid bikes. I added some extras.
Never Give Up!!!
