Midschool heavyweight shootout

As I was cleaning the garage today I was wondering what was the absolute heaviest of the mid school  20" frames.  So I drug out 6 frames from the pile and got out the fish scale.  Each frame was weighed 4 times and averaged.  My scale weighs in pounds, ounces and eights of ounces.  I did not feel like working on the components (gyro or bearing cups) so I weighed the components the same way.  I assessed the frames with stuck components a "penalty" and reduced the weight by that.  Starting line up as follows. 
1999ish Dyno Detour with pac-man drops, integral seat clamp and bolt, and integral gyro tab
S&M Warpig bare metal
Haro Zippo
Haro Backtrail
Haro Revo bare metal
Mongoose Hoop-D
http://i593.photobucket.com/albums/tt11/snopimpiqr/DSC03809.jpg
Final tally was as follows
6th place Haro Zippo 6lb 8 1/8oz
5th place Dyno DeTour 6lb 15 15/16oz
4th place Haro Revo 7lb 0 5/32oz
3rd place Mongoose Hoop-D 7lb 10 7/16oz
2nd place Haro Backtrail 7lb 11 3/32oz
1st place S&M Warpig 8lb 0 1/16oz
http://i593.photobucket.com/albums/tt11/snopimpiqr/DSC03805.jpg
That makes the Warpig the current heavyweight champion of the world.  So now to the rest of the contest.
1. All frames must be bare all components as my warpig was bare at weigh in. 
2. Must be 20" bmx frames build by a bike company (no barnyard frames)
3. Frame must be for a single rider only.
4. Frame must be moderately clean (no caking on the mud and muck)
5. No slapping on 8 coats of barn paint to make weight. 
6. All frames that I used already are out unless you can justify why yours weighs more (and no I will not accept any warpigs with paint saying it weighs more, I understand it does but come on be original).
http://i593.photobucket.com/albums/tt11/snopimpiqr/DSC03807.jpg
So get the frame semi clean, weight it and take a pic of the frame on the scale.  There will be two categories, first the heavyweight champ, and secondly the most original display picture of the frame.  The booty will be as follows, the heavyweight gets first pick of the picture below.  Second gets second pic.  http://i593.photobucket.com/albums/tt11/snopimpiqr/DSC03810.jpg
Items are a new set of clear orange x-posure grips, a set of 9/16 diamondback petals, and a 1 1/8 x-posure stem.  I may come up with a few more items as alternate prizes if I find stuff cleaning.  So lets give this a timeframe.  So we will declare a winner at the end of August.  There will be a delay in the prizes going out as I will be out of the country for a few months working.  If that does not work for you then don't weigh in your frame.  With that all said bring on the challengers.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

According to my notes my Y2K American made Haro Mirra Pro weighed in at 8.51 pounds. I will grab it tonight and reweigh it tomorrow.

Warpig was a tank. Mirra was too. Building a heavy bike would be a lot more fun.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

If I remember right, I have a Next Gen Dirtbike that was pretty heavy also. I will also grab it and weigh it tomorrow.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

Those are around 7. I've got one with 5 pound pitches I'd like to build for a fellow member.  I don't think he'd like to ride a 40 pound bike but I wanna see it

All BMX challengers welcome as long as they fit the criteria.  But pictures or it didn't happen.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

I've got a '98 GT Tour....I'm sure anyone who has lifted one will agree it has to be a serious contender for completes.  The frame....is upwards of 8#, but I'm not taking it apart to measure it....tongue


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

The 2-Hip pork chromoly frame and the Eastern Hercules are the heaviest that I know of.  4bikes also had some heavy crappy frames.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

Not a contender on the frame only (and I don't feel like taking it all apart) but this rolls at 39.4 lbs complete as shown.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

The heaviest I personally own is a 2000 Kink Empire Rev B. 8 pounder frame.
Here is a shot from the last time I had it built up for a Minnesota Faction BBQ bunnyhop contest in '07. Just a hair under 40lbs.

Re: Midschool heavyweight shootout

For the first time ever I kinda regret selling my Gary Fisher Mullet. I never weighed it, but it was up there in weight.


Do I owe you feedback? Please remind me via PM and I'll take care of it.
