Gents and Ladies,

Please use Metric weights when you are showing off your bike in here. The reason is twofold:


Of course, the bikes must be listed in NEWTONS, correct? Because grams and kilograms are units of mass.

Given a known gravitational acceleration which can assumed to be the same anywhere that is relevant to our discussion, units of weight and mass can be interchanged between describing mass and describing a force. We're on all Earth here...for now...

As the earth's gravitational constant is only constant at equal altitudes and on terrain of identical density, I shall henceforth only list the weight of my bicycles in NEWTONS, as suggested. At my current altitude and due to the loss of ground water beneath my bicycle at this moment due to local farmers response to the California drought, my bike currently weighs...
