And for the cost/quantity of their frames, I would expect that they would have a big enough profit margin for weighing each frame.

Those that think it would be easy, have never ran a profitable business.

"The combination of traditional construction techniques with the engineering knowledge gained during the RCA’s development results in a frame that is about 140 grams heavier than the RCA (670 grams vs. 808 grams for the new R5), but 20 grams lighter than the previous R5. The new R5 fork drops a bit of weight, down to 315 grams."

...for reference my 2013 R5 in 54cm weighs 760 grams (bare, no hardware of any type...which is how all weight weenies should weigh their bike). The weight referenced in above article for 2014, likely includes hardware (seat clamp, H2O bolts, hanger, cable guide).
