what does your bike weigh?

  1. I was wondering and trying to total it up. It was just as easy to get the kids digital scale to the garage. and make a few passes. I wonder if they'll notice the tire tracks on the scale. Mine weighs between 58 and 59 pounds. Plenty light enough for the kid to haul up the apartment stairs on his shoulder.
    Anyone else weigh their bike?

    Yup, you bet, it's one of my first considerations. My lightest MB, with fuel, weighs 42 lbs, the heaviest weighs 50.

    50 lbs is pretty much the cut-off weight for me.

    Yah, Professor, I can relate. About 60 pounds up front with the Honda 160 cc; 50 pounds in back. 55 with basket. 65 with a gallon of gas and tools in basket.

    It's a Schwinn 28" and I weigh 255. So, bike is 65lbs + 255lbs = 320lbs

    Just a bit heavy for a low quality 2/stroke motor huh? BUT, I've ported,Milled,longer intake,exspansion.

    + I live in major hills of SW Va.

    Ave 24.6mph

    Top 33.8mph :cyclist: PS- Keep that tire pressure UP!!! 44T, don't have shift kit.

    My Diamondback bike started life @ 38lbs. After engine drive, tank, fork and wheels were added, it weighs around 62lbs. Bias is 27lbs front/35lbs. rear. I weigh 198lbs., so that's 260lbs. + 25lbs. of safety gear/backpack.

    Cruising speed - 35mph, w/top speed around 45mph.

    Fear limits speed.:whistling:

    i've never put my bike on a scale but it's gotta be around 50 pounds considering its an old bmx frame with a HT thats stuck in the frame and fits like a glove.
    I heat my house with wood pellets and those weigh 40 pounds a bag and my bike is slightly heavier than that so thts where i get my guess. i'd be interested to know the exact weight but i dont have a good scale.

    My last build was probably about 80 lbs with a full tank (a 1.8 gallon tank). It was an aluminum frame. I also had a rear rack and saddle bags, as well as a big battery to run lights. My current build is steel.

    It was light enough that I could pick it up, but "throwing it over my shoulder" was cumbersome.
