The scale's UPS use must be fucked up... I ordered three shirts and a sticker from Empire and somehow it weighs 8.6lbs? So it's probably just the scale misread or something could also be all the pakaging and shit....

No problem, I had that same reaction, I was like "WTF? 8lbs for 3 shirts? that sticker better weigh 7.5."

Most likely shipping materials. Your bike isnt going to magically add on weight after they ship it haha

Don't worry about it when my bike was shipped by empire it weighed 35 lbs in the box (without the stem and sprocket)
It's mostly packaging and the way the UPS weighs it. BTW my bike weights around 22 pounds.

My bike came from wiggle.com in the UK.So Im guessing whole different system.That and it was a complete and not a custom.
