True value is loaded bike with rider weight.

The latter, though this isn't a scientific study :D

As ridden. If the panniers be loaded, count 'em too.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Hey this is my poll!
I say as ridden, but without packed contents of bags, as this can vary between days and users.

My Merida CX 4, with the CX shoes, water bottle, lights, trunk bag, repair kit, spare tube etc weighed in at 15.1 Kg.

I have yet to see how heavy it is with the SMPs back on it. Should be interesting.

My commuter bike is 11.5 kg for mine at the moment, may change slightly after some minor upgrade planned.

Weight weenie'd my old CAAD4 frame with some tasty carbon/Ti FRM brakes, handlebars/stem and some SRAM goodies after ditching the gears. Dont need them on a 12km flat commute. Wheels could be lighter, but for commuting they are quite solid. Weighs in at just under 7kg dry :mrgreen: :
