weighing a bike...

1. ## weighing a bike...

anyone know where I can weigh my bike preferably closer to north delta/surrey area?

2.

3. bathroom scale. run the front wheel on (maybe need a wooden block for a spacer). then run the rear wheel on. add!

4. my way
i like to weigh myself on the bathroom scale and take note of my weight - then pick up the bike, hold it over my head, take note of that weight, then subtract my weight from the combined weight of me and the bike.

i am wicked strong.

5. I could almost do that.. but bathroom scales do go that high.

Really?

7. Really.

Really?
both wheels need to be same height.. i'd rather just ride onto a scale and do both at the same time if possible.

I think you need two scales for that to be accurate. One under each wheel at the same time, then add.

By raising one wheel to go on one scale I think that'll transfer more weight to the unscaled wheel and throw off the calculations, although the error may not be significant... Or so I believe..

10. One wheel on scale, the other on a block of the same height, both on flat ground (i.e. the bike must be level). Check both ends this way, and add.

...as has been said before.

11. go to the truck weigh station by Alex Fraser Bridge.....if it is closed just ride on and look at the weight...

Or if you have a scale that goes up to 500 lbs lay a plank across it and zero it out then put the bike on it...

I would be interested if weighing each end then adding it up works...if thats the case then you could use 2 scales and put the bike on both...Hmmm

12. yes it works.. it's how i did my bike last time.. winter = mods = lost weight hopefully.

13. If the bike is under 440lbs, then use this:

hang bike from tie downs on garage rafters.

14. So the kickstand turn on a scale.... maybe put something that wi keep the stand from going through the scale.

Ps.
film it plz.

15. Wheelie onto the scale, if your rear wheel is balanced correctly you should be able to maintain a stationary wheelie while weighing your bike.

16. I quit spending money to save a few pounds here and there.
I just go on a quick diet and that takes care of about 5 lbs per week
