    2014 Motobecane Le Champion CF Pro 54 cm w/o pedals is 17.5 pounds. 18.2 pounds with the Wellgo pedals it came with. Those little bastards weigh almost 13 ounces. I am in the market for some speed plays.....

    Thanks. I was surprised how much lighter the Ritchey forks were compared to stock... especially when cut. As well as the Selle SLR over the stock Ritchey Pro saddle.

    Upgrades include:
    Ritchey WCS Carbon fork
    Ritchey WCS Carbon c260
    Ritchey WCS Carbon seatpost
    Selle Italia SLR Ti saddle
    Sram XG 1090 cassette
    Generic Ebay carbon cages

    If the bathroom scale is to be believed, my 52cm Fantom Cross (Comp) Ti with Shimano A530 pedals comes out to 23lbs, as pictured. Everything else you see came stock. I'll be swapping out a few bits soon.

    Yeah, I'm up in New Albany. Have you found anywhere to take it off road yet? I've taken mine up to alum creek and rode the mtb trails but it was a rough ride without suspension. I'm trying to find a nice dirt/gravel trail but not finding much in the area.

    Bike 1: 2013 size 53 Le Champ TI frame. 1,340g for the frame with the seatpost clamp. The fork was about 550g uncut. I have it built up at about 18 lbs right now with some fairly nice stuff but nothing really fancy.

    Bike 2: 2014 size 53 Mercier Kilo WT. Replaced the wheels with some slightly nicer 32 spoke Vueltas and mounted SKS fenders and Elite cages. Heavy 32MM tires. Otherwise stock. ~28 lbs. This is a lot for a single speed but it's a cheap bike and it's very tough.

    Bike 3: 2016 19" Boris the Evil Brut Sprung. Fatbike with Bluto fork, XT, 4.7" Vee Bulldozers on Mulefut wheels, SRAM hydro brakes. I set the tires up tubeless, everything else stock. ~31 lbs. This is about right for an alloy fattie with a Bluto. The Bluto alone weighs 4 lbs.

    Bike 4: 2016 size 56 Turino Team. Ultegra, WTB wheels, hydro disc brakes. I'm going to mount 36mm Clement MSOs on it, set up tubeless. TBD, on order (matte black doesn't ship until late July). I'm betting ~22-23 lbs due to the heavy wheels and tires. Also, I'll bet the frame isn't exactly a flyweight.

    /as you can tell, I like BD bikes a great deal.

    Does anyone know the weight of 2016 Motobecane Le Champion CF Di2, 52 cm?

    I am looking into moving up from my current Le Champion CF Ltd 2012, 54 cm. That comes in about 18.8 lbs with the Wellgo pedals. Thanks.

    Bike weights - Mercier Corvus AL - 2012 and 2014

    These measurements are taken on a japanese digital bathroom scale. These are scratch & dent bikes from www.bikelisland.com - the BD scratch & dent website (I had to add parts to complete each bike):

    How much does your BikesDirect Bike Weigh?-screenshot-2017-02-10-01-59-02.jpg
    54" 2012 Mercier Corvus AL #11 - net $840
    30sp Ultegra 6700 gears, Kinesis 7005 DB AL + Carbon Fork
    Burgundy color, flat (level) top tube
    + Alex ALX-220 (not-stock) wheels, 1910 grams
    + Vittoria Rubino Pro Tires (upgrade from Michelin Dynamic Sport)
    === stuff I changed is below ====
    + Ultegra 6700 brake calipers
    + 270gm Wellgo r104 silver/black road pedals
    = 21.2 lbs

    How much does your BikesDirect Bike Weigh?-screenshot-2017-02-10-01-59-19.png
    56" 2014 Mercier Corvus AL #13 - net $1045
    30sp Ultegra 6700 gears, Kinesis 7005 DB AL + Carbon Fork Neon Orange color, sloping (compact) top tube
    + Shimano WH-500 (stock) wheels, 1884 grams
    === stuff I changed is below ===
    + Vittoria Rubino Pro Tires (came with $5 tires - knobby+kenda)
    + Ultegra 6700 brake calipers
    + 270gm Wellgo r104 silver/black road pedals + plastic clips/straps
    = 22.0 lbs

    The bikes have HEAVY seatposts (350gm Kalloy) and HEAVY saddles (WTB Speed Comp 369gm). These scratch and dent bikes had the worst possible pedals (wholesale $5?), seatpost (wholesale $8), and saddles ($15?), so I am no longer sure I got such a great deal. I expect the mega-exo bottom bracket to fail rather quickly ($15), and I am investing $60 per bike to lose 250 grams from the saddles & seatposts, I hope to recover some of my investment by selling off the leftover parts.
