Not trying to be a weight weenie, just grabbing a general knowledge of average bike weights these days.

I'm guessing mine is near the 30lb range. I'm used to a heavy bike from the 90's and 00's and built my current one without a care for weight

Around 24lbs, no effort put in to saving weight at all, no pegs, no brakes, loads of deah!

It's just funny to me how nowadays people are taking into consideration brakes, pegs, and even seen guys complain about inner tube weight! It's funny! I ride brakes and pegs and run heavy duty tubes, if that makes a huge difference lol

Mines 29lbs, a lot of my friends say my bike is too heavy. Kinda stupid, because I'm better than them.

1. Which parts are the most often upgraded or exchanged for more weight savings...?

2. Other than the frame, handlebar and fork...Which parts are the most common suspect for having a large amount of weight...?

wheels are the biggest weight different imo

Guys with heavier bikes - does this make it hard for you guys to throw whips? Etc? or are you used to muscling the shit out of them?

Yes I do! It's in the bike check section! But basically it's a Fiend Embryo frame 20.75" with the matching Embryo forks, kink lynx bars, fit top load, eclat headset, tree 28t sprocket, shadow chain, kink pivotal seat post, profile fat seat, stolen talon cranks in 170mm, Merritt pedals, kink bottom bracket, eclat brake lever, eclat brakes, revenge industries double wall rims with S&M hubs with a 9t cassette, animal MTT tire out back and a shitty demolition machete tire up front, and two primo chromoly pegs and that's basically it

Just got a new gyro set. Other than consummables (tires, chain) probably a year ago. I use a lot of old parts.

Mine is about 26 pounds. Not that heavy imo, but I can't really bunny hop. That's just because I suck though laughing

I swear to drunk i'm not god

Probably 26 or so, half pegs n brakes. Thats light Imo. Coming from midschool and dirtbikes, I like the 'skateboard' feel of a lighter bike since Im not in the best shape and dont thrash like I used to.

Titanium hardware, race tubes, thats me. Why? Because I like having a nice bike? Its cheaper than cars.Plus I can run stronger parts without making
my bike heavy and boring.


****
The problem with race tubes, folding tires and 15oz rims is you can never go back once you get them; normal wheels feel like they're fillled with water.. The difference is huge when it comes to the rims.

If you ain't concerned about bike weight.....you should be. Esp around the wheel tires tubes. I don't want to get all Sir Isaac Newton on you all- but a little thing called rotational inertia has big effects -esp if your doing tricks. If your just "flowing" around the skatepark- then your probably fine with a 35lb bike with thorn proof tires and tubes filled with Slime. There is that old saying: "Strong, Light, Cheap........pick two" (cuz you ain't gonna be able to get all three) . The lighter the bike- the easier the tricks

My new 2017 Cult Devotion weighed in at 25 pounds even before I put left side pegs on. I want it down a couple pounds. What can I do?

Josh- 25 lbs is a decent weight. To get a really light bike you almost have to start from scratch - and BE a weight weenie by looking at the weight of every part you might buy. If you are dying to get it lighter then I would look at the crank arms- which are usually over built. The problem is: if your a beginner -having a bunch of light parts increases the probability of the parts breaking too. Nevertheless, next time your in the grocery store- pick up a two pound bag of sugar and think about how much more you could throw the bike around if it lost that much weight. ***Then go tailwhip off a loading dock!!

I feel like a poser chiming in on conversations like this these days. Can't do much on a bike. But I searched really hard for deals on parts to build a bike under 22lbs. Mostly because a buddy had a bike that was about 22 and it felt awesome. Mine ended up being just under 23lbs because I was done spending money. But it always felt to me like a bike was really tossable and nimble once I got it under the 25/26lb mark. Since I built my current (and lightest bike I've owned) setup I've been too old and broken to make use of it the way it deserves.
