I like collecting pics of lightweight bikes for ideas and inspiration. I posted some before, but the list has changed a little. I've listed the weights for the first 17, after that all the bikes are between 5kg and 6kg, then 6kg and over. Apologies if I've missed your bike off the list (please tell me where I can find a pic of it + weight in kilograms) or if some links don't work. ENJOY!

And is this the same bike as 2 and 3?

http://fotos.mtb-news.de/fotos/showphot ... /1/cat/500

I listed both because I thought the weight discrepancy might indicate a subtle change.

airsoft510,
last time I posted a list I got told off for not including bikes I didn't like. So this time I've left it up to you guys to decide the merits of each bike. I know a lot of people on this forum don't think the Canyon is a rideable bike - although if someone gave me one for a (non-UCI) hilly TT I wouldn't say no.

airsoft510,
I mean just this particular light Canyon, there was quite a bit of discussion about it here:

http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum ... n&start=15

The brake calipers and gears raised some eyebrows. I think everyone here agrees the frame is great.

I like the list!

Sure if you look for weights like in the first 4 bikes you will have to compromise and do without the nice Campagnolo brake-schifters.

For me as a over 90kg rider on a 62cm (c/t) frame these kind of bikes are out of the question.

But again I like the list and 2 and 3 are the same bike (maybe slightly modified I don't know).

This list is good for ideas (so is the PK0R bike on this list!!!!).

Sprinter thanks for taking the trouble to put this list together!

It is maybe nice to have those as orientation or comparison but as Luc said it is a thin line between sport & fashion (©Luc - I like that one).
Not everything works for everyone (not only due to the rider weight, but also because of personal preferances) and for every possible intended use and also mileage.
That is the hardest part in building a suitable WW bike for oneself. And therefore I don't come to like the categorization as it makes it seem as if it was a competition which it is clearly not. There is nothing cool about having the lightest bike either, but rather in knowing to use it. :wink:
