The problem is there is no universal method of weighing bikes. Most manufacturers quote without tyres and pedals, but that's not set in stone. The exception is Giant who don't officially quote at all, although many large retailers quote their own figures for Giants. This is why chucking our own complete bikes on the scales is unlikely to bear much relation to any manufacturers quoted figures.
If it helps anyone - Poundland has luggage/Fishing scales that go up to 50lbs .
I just bought one and its pretty robust for only a quid ,probably a line from somewhere that was overstocked or not sold. Means theyre unlikely to be around for long so pop down next time youre in a city center and pick one up
I weighed my big Ti and its about 26 1/2lbs which i think is pretty close and fine for me.If you want to know to the decimal place then digital is obviously better but youre not going to get it for a quid
I've got access to some proper weights from an old butchers (14lb+28lb) so ill find out how accurate it is off the bat and see if any adjustment is needed
