He saw the claimed weight after researching Norm and finding ‘that thread’ after buying the bike.
Needless to say, it was more than 12.3kg.
I thought we settled that one ages ago.



And Chops bike was alloy not a carbon SB66



That took a bit of digging, I forgot the thread had been locked.

Chops ended up with a carbon rear replacement. He cracked the alloy rear. I never said it was a complete carbon bike.

This was an unsolicited conversation. He didn’t know I know chops or the bike.

You’re a mate. Ask him if he sold it to a guy called Chris who peeled back the sticker to find the crack.

Also, I can make the scales read whatever I want it to. It was nothing near the claimed weight when Chris bought it, even without the heavy sticker intentionally covering a crack. ;)

Hey I weighed that myself and took the pic. Bike off the ground, hanging off the scales.

Clearly I have no idea what was discussed between chops and the buyer though. But I do know he took a few of the purple parts off it to transfer to the sb5.5 he had for a while.

I don’t even know if he still owns a mountain bike.... all I see is FB posts of roady gear and Zwift.

He seems like a legitimate businessman these days.

Many of the bikes he shows off in The Chop Shop, appears to have their front wheel on the ground for the weigh in :p

What a goose, I showed him how to hang them to weigh while I was there. He was trying to hang them with a piece of dodgy rope off the scale. They have rubber coated hooks for a reason, just hang it by the frame.

Also the easiest way to cheat would be to tare the scales with something on them.

I am honing in on the perfect bag of microwave popcorn, today i have it down to only 11 'non-poppers'
I think if i try to get it down to less, I will seriously be running the risk of burnt corn, not a risk that I am prepared to take.

Push it to the limits dude, life's too easy if you don't push the limits
