    I have a 56 and it is in the range of 23lbs without a waterbottle cage or bag. (with pedals)

    Interesting. What year JTS?

    Is this bike useful as a potential some-time commuter bike? I am looking at it as my only "road" bike for now, as an alternative to my XC MTB and folder. I like the idea of the cross bike because roads through beautiful country north of me are often gravel and the cross bike would handle it ok vs a road only bike.

    2008. Its a pretty beefy frame. I thought It would be lighter. I bought an extra set of wheels and road tires to use mine as a road bike and I'm guessing it lost a little weight as a result. very happy with it so far.

    Fair enough. Looking to pick one up this week. Just going to get a slightly shorter stem for a 54 cm model and maybe a better saddle or suspension post. I have a problematic lower back (lumbar)...so I like a bit of extra cush

    A stock Kona Jake the Snake, with only saddle and tires changed?

    That's what my bathroom scale tells me. The scale is accurate at 15lbs using a 15lb dumbell as a reference. I'd guess it's accurate at 20lbs assuming that the 15lb dumbell actually weighs 15lbs.
