You would use kilograms rather than milligrams to use a bike. To measure with milligrams, it would be a very big number.

1,000 milligrams = 1 gram

1,000 grams = 1 kilogram

To get pounds, multiply the number of kilograms by 2.2.

Example: A bike weighs 5 kilograms. The bike weighs 11 pounds.

If a bike weighs 5 kilograms, multiply by 1,000,000 to get milligrams because 1 kilogram is 1,000 grams and 1 gram weighs 1,000 milligrams. The bike would weigh 5,000,000 milligrams. This is why you would weigh a bike with kilograms instead of milligrams.
