Just to confirm, do Hope 180mm rotors for in the back on a 2019 HT LT? I’ve heard they don’t.

They do - just have to add a spacer. May also wanna size up to the 200mm which fit better as well.

I don't doubt yours is accurate. That was more rhetorical. LOL I don't trust my weighing method. Haha

Thanks though.

I just need to buck up and get one.

So I brought both scales home from work today. One of the scales goes by .5 lb increments and it was just calibrated by Washington Calibration a few months ago. Our other scale goes by .2 increments and we have not calibrated it in over a year.
That being said, my Park Tools scale says
28 lbs 2 oz.
The calibrated scale says 28 lbs. But because it goes by .5, it can be anywhere between 27 lbs 13 oz and 28 lbs 4 oz and it will still say 28 lbs. Our other scale says 28.2 lbs, so anywhere between 28 lbs 2 oz -5 oz. roughly.
All things considered, I'd guess its between 28 lbs 2 - 3 oz.

That’s ridiculously impressive

I’m gonna need some definitive evidence here though...

It really is. At some point, when I have time, I would like to go thru the details of where the weight difference is coming from. But I need a proper scale first. Haha

I may not be as far off as I think I am. I can easily see about a lb diff, but that should be about it.
