Must be quite challenging to pedal it w/o pedals, eh?


My bike, all-in, probably weighs around 20-ish lbs or so. I honestly don't know.
I honestly don't care.

Weight is nearly irrelevant, especially for a tri bike.
It's not how much it weighs, it's how fast it goes w/ you on it.
I see a timer at every race - I have yet to see a scale.

And even more importantly - it's how fast you can run after having ridden it.

In Reply To:
Brand/size/spec if you want
cervelo p3c 16.1 lbs with race wheels (corima disc & h3c front) and an aero water bottle cage/bottle. I changed the bolts and washers to alu and ti, zeroG brakes, Blackwell Concord aero bar/stem, token head set, tuned derailleurs, nokon cables, speedplay x1, triathgel saddle, tiso aero chain ring, and a reynolds aero fork. size 58

I weighed it last year, since then I changed to a zipp sub 9 disc and changed the extensions and pads on the aero bars so I think it's lighter now.

16.1 beat that Plasma owners!

I'd agree with you that weight is irrelevant for most triathlons but when I did silverman, my 23lber kicked my butt. I'm sure I and my legs would have been much happier with a lighter bike.

Re: How much does your Tri Bike weigh? [irodetoday] [In reply to] Quote | Reply

I have to second what Murphy'sLaw said but just for the record, I have an 04 or 05 QR Tequilo, HED3 clinchers, Pro Race 2s of course ( would love to try the Bonty Aero ones though), PD cobra wing, PD aero bottle and mostly Ultegra SL and DA mixed stuff, plus flat wing (I think) and tubes/tools and it comes in somewhere in the 22-23 lb range (without filled bottles which would add another 4-5 lbs I think). On a hilly or flat course I'll spank most people. Won't beat any pros to the line, but I also train about a quarter as much so I think you can completely take weight out of any real worry. Plus, in addition to my heavy ass bike, my 175 lb heavy ass should make me slow as well. I know it's been reiterated about a billion times, but in anything other than a mountain race, weight will play a fantastically small role. It's not that it doesn't matter, but it doesn't matter a whole lot. Aero and MOST especially your position (well I guess most especially would be your training) are what will play the biggest roles.

That's not fun advice though as you can't generally buy a training +2 module. Oooooh, me thinks we have a new marketing scheme. Sort of the DnD of tri.

Sub 16# or over 20# all Bad Ass.
Mine 18.89#
2005 Litespeed Blade 49cm
Full Dura Ace 10
Reynolds Ouzou Pro Aero
HED bars
Mavic Krysium Elite 650c
Hydrotail and Aero cage
Entire kit will change this week...should loose about 2#
Sram Red every where
Easton bars
Zipp 404 tubulars
Keo carbon HM
Anyway, I know that weight of a Tri bike is "not all that important" but neither is half of the other stuff we talk about here and dream about when were not on Slowtitch.
I just love bikes...especially Tri bikes.
Thanks everyone.

I think most people are using fantasy weight.
My bike got weighed before a tt last week.
Felt DA with SRAM Red, Dura-Ace SRM, Hed Vantage 8 aero bars, Shimano SPD SL pedals, Hed H3 clincher front wheel, Hed Jet clincher disc rear wheel- 8.8 kg or 19.38. lb.
I may have to go back to my Zipp set-up. 808/Zipp disc cuts 1 lb. double 808 cuts 1.3 lb.

My bike is probably not 15lbs like some here...but then I'm about 140lbs so I don't really care...and when you see the impact that 1kg has going up l'Alpe d'Huez, you might be tempted to think like M's Law...who care about weight unless you're racing Embrun??

Current-aided swims
Do swims aided by a current, such as the NYC Tri and the past weekend's IM Chattanooga, diminish the achievement? Or are they just a local geographic expression of multisport?
