carbon2329, you need to get some Italian scales ... even if not made in Italy, then the ones used by the likes of Deda Elementi, although maybe you also need to be an old world craftsman and marketer to know how to properly interpret the scales.

CarpetFibre,

I tend to be the same way. I like to think of myself as a WW, but I weigh 185lbs (6' 2"), and my bike weighs about 16lbs. It's pretty light, but I'm not willing to swap out my Thomson stem and seat post for carbon, and I like my full Dura Ace 7800 group... even my crankset, pedals, and wheels are DA7800, and I like it all matching.

I've actually found that I lost a bit of weight just by switching to lighter tubes (50g each instead of 110g), and lighter tires (220g instead of 330g).

Ransom

I agree that some of the weights of bikes on here don't make sense . There is RC5A that has all AX stuff etc etc and I would have thought would have been sub 11 or near 11lbs when you compare it to other bikes on this thread but it came in over 12lbs and yet other bikes on here with the same stuff are weighing less . dodgy scales ? Or are there some real discrepancies between the weights of the same frame?

I, really, don't mean to cause any trouble, but I just can't figure it out.

Maybe, my scale is a "lemon" and my frame is more like 1500gm instead of 1030gm :noidea:

You always have to cross-check on different scales :smartass:

This thread is a great read.... Question for the experts, Im 204 lbs, (due to weight lifting not flab) ride every other day on a 15.0 lbs 2003 Alloy Pinarello that Im giving the WW make over as the budget allows. At my weight, is 12 lbs or less even advisable? Any one HEAVY like me here riding something super light?

Nope, I'm in tubsy land, albeit intense gym bike work has nudged me from 116 kilo's to 113, I wouldn't go south of 16lbs meself.
