My backtrail weighs 32 lbs. That's pretty average I think. It should be a little lighter after my new parts arrive (profile cranks, odyssey lite cassette, pedals and chainwheel) but that's not what I'm going for. Trimix, a very wise man, once gave me a piece of advice as I was complaining about sore knees "You're probably just not used to this yet".
Easiest way to lighten your bike is to ride, ride, ride. One day you won't even notice how heavy your bike is. Oh and push-ups help tons.

Grow some muscles people... I think for some of you it would be better to spend some money on some decent sneaks and just jump around in the air...

I agree Leon. 29 pounds is nice....mine is a little toooooo light, but with two more pegs and front brakes.....it might be perfect. I am just having fun with the back wheel right now :)
