Check out my new MTB that I bought last season: 2012 Scott Scale Pro 29er, 2x10 w/XO and X9 (size sm)Now ~9.3kg or ~20.5lbs, as seen with pedals, cage, Garmin mount, etc.
Thanks to saving 1.15kgs or 2.55lbs, it would’ve been ~10.4kgs or ~23lbs bone stock with all the same goodies. Scott's site says it's 10.2kgs or 22.5lbs sans pedals. Therefore by my modest powers of deduction, I figure their estimate ain't half bad (add my pedals at 174g/pair, the Garmin mount and cage which are 222g or ~.5lb).
The factory build was XO/X9 2x10 with lots of Scott-branded (pre-Syncros) components ... better make that past tense as it HAD lots of Scott stuff. Here’s my Weight Weenie efforts:
Stan’s Crest 29er tubeless wheels (1606g) replaced DT Swiss XR29 tubeless (2111g) - saved 505g or 1.1lbs and stayed tubeless ... I moved both the DT Swiss RWS QRs and Schwalbe RRs (2.25") over to the new wheelset
SRAM XX 11x36t cassette (213g) replaced SRAM X9 11x36t cassette (355g) - saved 142g or .31lb without giving up any gear inches
Mt Zoom bar (640mm, 111g) replaced Scott Pilot bar (680mm, 279g) - saved 168g or .37lb while giving back ~3/4” on each side
Syntace Flatforce stem (77mm, 135g) replaced Scott no-name stem (70mm, 129g) - added 6g or .01lb in exchange for a better position (~15mm more reach and ~20mm lower partially via a thinner / narrower (?) clamping area on the steerer and semi-aggressive negative angle)
Selle San Marco Aspide FX (134g) replaced Selle Italia Team something or other (268g) - saved 134g or .3lb … once you go Aspide you never go back ... I think that’s what “they” say
Edge (NOS) Composites zero setback post (34.9x 355mm, 188g) replaced Scott post (34.9x 355mm, 294g) - saved 106g or .23lb
Ashima Ai2 rotors (160mm, 81g and 180mm, 107g) replaced Avid HS1 rotors (160mm, 92g and 180mm, 143g) - saved 47g or .10lb
Extralite Ultragrips and caps (16g + 4g) replaced Scott lock-on grips (117g) - saved 97g or .21lb
Oops, I misplaced my pic of the Ultragrips. I believe this is the actual weight.
Mt Zoom clamp (38mm, 6g) replaced Scott no-name clamp (17g) - saved 11g or .02lb
Added “out font” Garmin bar mount from Mt Zoom - added 18g or .04lb
Added Arundel Side-Loader cage - added 30g or .07lb
Oops, I misplaced another pic. I believe this is the actual weight.Here's the factory spec on the Scott website - http://www.scott-sports.com/global/en/p ... -29-pro-m/
