The actual lightest is 10.79 Ibs..

http://www.light-bikes.com/bikegallery/ ... asp?id=451

Its the genesis of the one that was listed on the links on the previous posts.

Some of the things he has done to get to that weight are scary!

Check out the Sid (776 grams ) lightening alone ..

These people do realise that they're a little insane?

WTF is the point of making a bike so light it's unridable? I'm all for light parts if it floats your boat and you afford it but to have scary stuff like suspension forks with one empty leg just reeks of unhealthy obsession.

That Scott Scale is less than a third the weight of my Marin.

If ever I replace parts on my new bike, I do consider the weight, but in my heart I know that there are far greater weight savings to be made much closer to home. I could probably lose the weight of my entire bicycle without being under weight. :oops:

That 700 gram SID does not actually work, internals are gone I think. So its a rigid fork.

Have a look at the pics. Its a working fork all right. Damper/air piston in one leg only, and carbon shaft too 8) Not sure I'd trust it for serious off road riding though. Superb piece of work all the same. Credit to the guy.
