Currently most people on here would have to add weights to their bikes to race.

How many on the forum regularly race their weight weenie bikes anyway? Any every had their rides DQ'd for being underweight in an amateur race?

I've never had my bike weighed or measured at a race. It'd fail the UCI weight as it's 13.something lbs depending on wheels.

USA amateur racing does not follow UCI regs except for a few championship events.

Does not follow the regs, or does not enforce the regs?

Does not follow the regs, with exceptions.

(e) Bicycles must meet current UCI technical regulations at events that select 17-18, U23 and Elite riders for international competition or national teams. All bicycles used in National Championships (for age 17 and older riders) and NRC races must comply with the current UCI regulations. At the discretion of USA Cycling, UCI rules may be adopted or modified for Masters National Championships.

a) For Olympic and other international events, and the activities of UCI teams, the applicable regulations of the UCI shall take precedence over USA Cycling regulations.
(b) National Championships for 17-18, U23 and professional riders will be run under UCI rules, except as specifically noted elsewhere in these rules. At the discretion of USA Cycling, other races for 17-18, U23 or professional riders that are used to qualify riders for national teams or international competition may use UCI rules, either completely or in part.
(c) These Racing Rules apply to all races authorized by USA Cycling, including national championships.
(d) Whenever a specific rule is in conflict with a more general rule, the specific rule takes precedence.
(e) Exceptions to these rules may be made only with prior approval of the CEO in a particular race event. A request for exception should be made in writing to the CEO.

6F1. Bicycles and Wheels used in competition in all collegiate road events (criteriums, time trials, road races, etc) must conform to the current UCI regulations for mass-start legal bicycles and wheels. The UCI maintains a website with the information of approved wheels.

I have done NRC races, UCI stage races of various levels and championships and to date I have had my bike weighed once in the past 5 years. And it was in a time trial at that. Definitely never had someone look for a UCI approved sticker either but had plenty of people tell me my saddle is too far forward on my tt bike!
