    I have my Trek 520 loaded (tent/sleeping bag, etc... and weights) to get ready for some touring. It weighs 85 pounds at the moment.

    Oh do I love to jump on my Bianchi occasionally. I haven't weighed it but it is in the low 20 pound range.

    My bike is about 8.5-9.0Kg.

    I think there is no point in being too focussed on a few grams more ore less. I usually take two 650ml bottles with me, so that is already 1.3kg extra weight...

    However, I can understand that especially for wheels 100 gram can make quite a difference because they have to spin up etc.
    But for that the weight only is is not the most important. I think the moment of inertia is important: a heavy hub has less influence than a heavy rim.

    Is that weight with or without : bottle cages , pump , bottles , spare tube , tool kit etc .
    The mags take off anything they can including pedals ( which I seem to need , how about you ? ) to get their figures but what does it matter ? if you ain´t a pro you can diet off more than money can lose ( eg.. durace - 105 = 500gms and a whole pile of money )
    and now they try to sell us " light " clothing , oh come on get real .

    I like your post. Been writing the same point forever. The only reason these ppl get their bikes as light humanly possible, is to show off. Sure it is great if pro, but how many pros on this site? These ppl purchase carbon cages to show off their wealth. Most are lousy riders with weak endurance....
