    Like Frank says, cyclists go to great lengths to shave ounces of the bike, and they pay hundreds per ounce to do it. A lot of them wouldn't be any slower on a Schwinn cruiser, but such is life.

    You're all using the same calibrated scale, right? Mail it on to me and I'll weigh mine to nearest gram too!

    No advertised weight to compare to, but here's the actual:

    Phillips 4x5 (from final production run, with light weight bellows): 3 lb. 13.1 oz.

    Actual weight, including folding focusing hood and the one pair of infinity stops with screws that won't loosen (all other stops removed) -- 4 lb. 9 oz.

    The above measured on a scale in the Post Office, which reads to the nearest 0.01 oz. Can't vouch for how accurate it is though.

    Ebony SV Wholeplate. Advertised weight 4kg (8 lb. 12.8 oz). Actual weight, after temporarily re-installing the original Ebony titanium baseplate (I had S.K. Grimes machine a replacement of aluminum that has an integral quick-release dovetail) as well as removing the ground glass protector and Sinar-to-Technika lensboard adapter, 4.75 kg (10 lb. 7.2 oz.).
