Hey all, just curious as to where I could find the weights for components other than what the manufacturer says? Does one even exist? Perhaps someone of a greater technical expertise could construct some kind of web-enabled database. I just want to avoid that unfortunate experience where I get a tire that is supposed to weigh 186g and it weights 265g, or the carbon handlebars that I just bought for $160 just happen to weigh the same as another set of handlebars that would have cost me $80 less.

I think it would be a valuable resource to us cyclists who know that what the manufacturer says isnt necessarily so. It would certainly help us make better purchasing decisions.

Perhaps RBR could add a segment for actual weight on its reviews site.

Any thoughts?

Alot of it is older stuff. It is the only one I am familiar with.
