I'm looking for a inexpensive scale. A used one would be fine I guess. I found this one on the net. Any other places?

max weight 360g... You can't weigh frames, wheels etc. (unless they're really light of course :wink: )

I would be weighing small parts that I tune before and after. Also
components, but nothing like a fork or frame.

Check out Office Depot or eBay is where I bought mine.

Then filter on the left to narrow things down a bit.

especially for germans and maybe other eu-guys: "aldi nord" has a digital kitchenscale (3000g max; 1g scaling) for about 10euro within the next few days. i own one of these - checked it with several combinations of coins and it seems quite accurate. dunno if it's just for german aldi or all aldis (nord) in europe share the same offers

t, If you go to FAQ and then "what scale should I use" there are some good general recomendations. Since I'm going to be measuring small parts it is recomended that the scale have a resolution of +-0.1 grams.
I'm ordering a scale today for small parts. I guess I won't be able to weigh a frame or wheels. If I have to measure them I could go to a scale somewhere.

who does really need that? it's only useful for bolts and extremely tiny stuff. if you take 1 digit as real mistake of the scale, this meant 1g. as most things in here are stems, posts, bars, seats... all in all the "larger" stuff, there's no need to give weights in a 1/10g resolution. in my opinion it's a very cheap solution and and covers - especially in bikeparts - a wide range of parts to be messeured reasonable exactly.

Why don't you guys buy an professional scale?

Those kitchen scales are not very accurate. And 5% scale discrepancy gives an difference of 25gram for an crankset with an weight of 500gram.

Does anybody uses one of these electronic hanging fish scales? Is it precise enough to weight a complete bike ?

Here is one I'm looking at:

Thanks,

hi,

I bought mine at IKEA, but i don't know if they excist in the USA.

It is a digital one, accurate at 1 gram, and they given weights are very true conmpared to this sitelistings!
It weighs up to 3000 gr.

The best part: it only costs 12 euro.


groeten Marijn

For all of us who wants to weight bike parts (including frames) to 0.1g precision the iBalance Mid Series i2600 is the scale that i think will perfectly do the job. This model will weight up to 2600g in .1g accuracy.

the downside, it's expensive: $150 on eStores , $135 on ebay
