You sad, sad bastard. 8)

On the other hand just yesterday I weighed 2 Headshok forks and found out the ones I just got off eBay are 200 odd grams heavier than the ones I've already got. :roll:
Don't think I've put a part on my bikes without knowing how much it weighed, if it weighs a ton what's the point of using it? Used to have a bag with all my inner tubes in it, tubes rolled up with an elastic band holding on a piece of paper with the weight.

You're doing it all wrong.

Weigh yourself, then again after yer dump, a bit arithmetic and you have the weight of yer dump.
No need to drop one on the scales, you just work it out with a pencil.
