No, the 60 lbs is the bike in the box. @LRAC if you're asking about the weight for shipping purposes the weight is really secondary. The box size is the critical factor. If the box is within the fair price size you can ship 75 lbs for almost the same as a 40 lbs. If I remember correctly the boxes I used used was 8" W. 32" tall "54" long. Go over the dimensional weight and the shipping fee almost doubles.
