    So true. I wish I hadn't weighed by bike last week. Now I am looking at buying another lighter trail bike instead of just manning the fuck up. People do 30+ mile 5500' rides on 35 pound bikes all the time......right?

    Quit weighing your bikes!!!!
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Interesting. Not as thin as the Evo though, right?

    I love everybody talking about weighing their bike like itís a gateway to unhappiness. I mean, it kinda is, but thatís a personal failing, donchathink?

    Cyclists may be the only group of people who generally know how many grams there are in a pound. First one to get that right gets a lifetime subscription to the weight weenie website. No googling.

    Yes, that's the first sign...454 if I remember right.

    Wouldn't the weed guys know that number as well?

    I've never weighed my bikes, but did put a guestimate into Strava so that it could lie to me about how many calories I've burned. Guessing 22lbs for the gravel bike and 32lbs for the mountain? Both pretty run of the mill bikes, nothing fancy but not tanks either. I always figured losing 5lbs from my body is better than spending thousands to lose 5lbs from my bike.

    Just cracked the 30 lbs. barrier. Stole the crank off my older xc hardtail that I don’t ride much.
    Mostly was curious if the M9000 crank with the narrow 158mm Q-factor would fit on the FS boost bike.
    Hopefully the 5-6mm arm/ chainstay clearance doesn’t crash. Looks okay I think.

    Wonder if narrower Q factor helps with pedal strikes more than going down 5-10mm with shorter arms?
    Made a huge difference sidehilling on my fat bike, but that was extra stupid wide.
    So the world is filled with tubular entities. Food goes in one end and shit comes out the other. Sperm goes in and babies come out.

    It should help. I think narrower q is supposed to be more efficient pedaling too. I like the stability of a wider q though. That might be a personal body geo fit thing though. It might be part of the reason the pedals on my eeb take a betting. I think the q on that is like 178

    Y'all's bikes would weigh a lot less if they had more speed holes.

    Easy:
    1000 grams = 1 kilogram
    1 liter of water = 1000 milliliters of water,
    And how much does 1 liters of water weigh? it weighs 1 kilogram or 1000 grams.
    And if you had to build a box to hold 1 liter of water, how big would it be? it would be 10 centimeters by 10 centimeters by 10 centimeters.
    Simple right?

    Who the hell knows what a gallon of water weighs? Or how big its displacement is?

    How much does your bike weigh?

    when andrew and I first started dating he was riding a SX Trail that weighed - iím not exaggerating- 40 something lbs. I was on a trek fuel. those rides were great- no redlining the whole time to keep up like now.
    I may need to start doing a reverse shawshank redemption and add a small bit of dirt into his frame everyday

    I always enjoyed the theory of just drilling holes in stuff to save weight until it finally snapped. Hours of fun.

    Especially with chainrings.

    Yup. My pole weighs in at around 30.5. And that's with light-ish tires. It'll get heavier before it gets lighter.

    For a size small I suppose it is.
