    Actually thatís not bad. Never thought Iíd have weight envy of a 30lb hardtail, hahaha.

    I used to ride with a guy who had a Morewood Izumu set up with a 2x9 drivetrain. I think it was the only DH frame that would fit a front derailleur. Coil shock and double crown fork, and heíd slog away up big climbs.

    Wow...those drillium examples are amazing. I started riding in '94, just after that peaked, I think. Parts from that era (Kooka cranks, anyone?) didn't need holes to randomly break...

    I weighed a couple of mine.

    2020 Ibis Ripley, XT build with Ibis 35mm aluminum rims, Hope brakes, bottle cage, computer mount, XT pedals, Assegai chunker tire front, Rekon rear 30.2#

    2019 Trek Emonda SLR9 2 bottle cages, pump holder, computer mount, heavy 105 pedals, tubes, real saddle (it came with a 90g full carbon one) 14.48#
    ride bikes, climb, ski, travel, cook, work to fund former, repeat.

    More Current Bike is a Medium 2016 non-boost 29er Specialized Stumpjumper. Stock its 31 lbs with 2X10 gearing.
    Previous bike 1996 Bontrager Privateer Steel hardtail at about 25 lbs including Bar ends but Handlebars were cut short to save weight.
    Previous bike 1989 or 1988 Ritchey Supercomp about 22-23 lbs fully rigid steel. Including heavy mavic bottom bracket (3/4 lbs) and 48 tooth big ring.
    Lots of weight increase between the time of the Ritchey and now. Most of it it not the bike.

    scary ^^ that looks like a cinelli stem, they were wimpy without any holes ime,

    I had one on a vitus at high speed the bike would go into speed wobble the bike was too big for me so I went to a shorter aheadset stem and a quill-to-aheadset adapter post to shorten up the cockpit which also cured the wobble completely

    I'll weigh in (ha) on road bikes - my steel 57cm Independent Fabrication with all old Dura Ace and old Mavic Ksyriums (which are heavy as hell) weighs in at 17.5.

    As mentioned before, I'm a recovering weight cutting addict. This seems a good time to post my favorite bike seat of all time - fully carbon Selle Italia Evolution 2. It's just so beautiful. Carbon rails with just a single sheet of carbon to sit on - no padding. So freaking comfortable - but a little slipperly. I rode it for 3-4 years till the carbon sheet finally developed a slight crack. Says 99 grams on it but actually weighed in around 93. I'd love to find someone who could repair it so I could ride it again...

    AX Lightness
    83 grams at a cost of slightly over $5/gram. Yeah, when I was young and $ didn't matter
    2nd most comfortable saddle I've ever had. Relied on flex and design instead of padding.

    Most Comfortable?

    How much does your bike weigh?

    Oh hell yes Roxtar. You and me need to share some beers and compare notes.

    How about replacing various bolts with aluminum and titanium? Didja? Betcha did.

    Extra points if they are bright anodized colors.

    Edit: I need to reiterate that I no longer have this sickness. Much better now. Put new grips on my mtn bike last year and didnít even weigh them first. How bout that!

    See? Totally cured.

    My brother still has his Amp B5, built super light as well, but it has been retired to Arizona at a friends place for riding trails so has extra heavy tubes and tires to survive the thorns. Probably added 3lbs to its weight. I still occasionally ride my KHS 104 that weighs 24lbs and am immediately reminded by my aching back how much I don’t miss fixed seat posts and incredibly steep head angles.

    Ok, I know Iím a freak, but im saying this as someone who occasionally enjoys riding cross bikes on technical mtn bike trails.

    Sometimes I miss steep head angles. Bikes did what you told them to do.

    Of course, if you told them to do the wrong thing you immediately ate shit...

    Oh yeh, it goes where you look, you can do switchbacks up any trail that is as wide as the bike is long, but oh man, 4”of tired Manitou Minute travel doesn’t do much for roots and rocks on the downhill, I pretty much only ride it when my ‘modern’ bike ( 2008 Nomad ) is down for service.
