I'll throw myself in the mix here. I'm 6'5" and 205lbs or 1.96m and 93kg. My Evo weighs in at 5.84kg so that makes for a difference of 87.16kg

Who's going to top me!

I'm 112kg but I had the wisdom to ride a steel bike; it's 18.8 lbs.

i was 114.5kg a month ago,but you osmotically got me on the gym bikes 3 months early, bless all your cotton socks. Nice big training ride tomorrow, now me elite front is showing pretensions to actually, really, spin round.

Surely it should be expressed as a ratio of bike versus person

I think the measurement should be rider weight divided by bikeweight.

My bodyweight 73 kg an my bike weights 6,49, so my bodyweight per bike kg = 11,25

When I came back to cycling, I was heavier than I'd ever been in my life (more than double my racing weight when younger). I also built myself a nice, light bike to get back into shape on.....

Bodyweight 120.6kgs!
Bike Weight 6.6kgs

Difference 114kgs!!!!

Ratio 18.27!

Thankfully, I've lost 31kgs since that time and can no longer compete for the prize!

Current weight 87kgs
Current bike weight 7.25kgs.

Difference 79.75kgs

Ratio 12.0

spandexboy817 - 1.95m / 6'4.75", but I descend like a feather!
fastrow23 - you're only a hair taller, I'm curious what size is your Evo? Very light for what must be a fairly big bike.
