Park Tool Digital Scale - DS-1 $69.95
Stop playing the guessing game.
Admit it -- you really, really wanna know. How much does you bike weigh? Is it really as light as you think? The Park Tool DS-1 Digital Bicycle Scale divines the truth, for better or worse. The precision of the DS-1 is second-to-none. It can measure anything up to 55lbs (it can go metric if you prefer), and its accuracy is rated to 0.005%. Its LCD display is easy to read and it can weigh doo-dads as light as 20g.You can set it to display weights in grams, ounces, or pounds. The brilliant thing about the DS-1 is that you can cinch it in a Park Tool workstand clamp for weighing things like wheels or frames. And it comes with a loop to hang higher when you weigh your bike.
A silicone-coated hook protects your frame's finish and prevents it from sliding. For small parts you can hang a tray or a bag on the hook and re-zero it to tare the weight. It's built with a rugged, shock-resistant rubber housing to endure the typical abuse of a bike workshop. Batteries are included, and it comes with a 1 year warranty.

Accurate when set-up correctly...
...which is difficult to do. Getting the two hooks under the top tube of an XC or road bike is one thing, but can be difficult with a bigger bike. Play around and you'll usually find a spot. Lower shaft fits perfectly in a Park repair stand.
