My chinese open mold cross bike is 7.3kg with alloy clinchers. Sub 7kg would be doable with carbon tubulars.

The giant Frame is Not lighter than a Chinese dengfu whatever.
But the fork is by far the lightest disc fork i think.
So the Frameset should be the lightest on the market.
In the beginning of November i can Tell you more ;0)

Mines being custom sprayed at the moment. It is a carbon sport FF -R014. Frame weight is 1120 - have treated it to a 3T Luteus fork.

I will post pictures and build list in a couple if weeks. I am aiming for a sub 16lb build with sram s700 hydraulic - it's looking a bit tight at the moment.

Not really. The frame geometry is nothing close to a proper road bike, see the distances from tire edge to frame are quite big. The angles are also not too much into race/aero ergonomy. Also the frame can fit tire sizes up to 38C. I can even use my MTB wheels 26" with 1.95 tires with brake disk just plug n play. As I said I am currently using a 700×28C because 70% of my use is dirty roads but even this tire wouldn't fit in a specific road bike frame as its actual size is 29mm width, so yes it looks like a road bike and in fact it serves the purpose very well but it is much more comfortable and strong than a road bike and with the proper tires it is ready for a CX job without any further modification.

Note the two same-size frame characteristics:

1.The CX frame has more relaxed angles compared to the road
2. The CX fork is much stronger
3. The CX tire is quite bigger although the white side line makes it look low profile

maybe he means you should weight it with decently knobby tires. i aint do no mud or dirts with those 'almost' slicks :)

Ok ok not very difficult to think right...... remove 440g from the current tires and add 650g for a pair of a nice cross tire so you still have a bike weight of 6780g and good for mud. Still a very light CX bike isn't it. A tire doesn't make a bike type come on those you can change in 30 sec if you have two sets of wheels for different applications. BTW a 23c tire mounted on a Mountain bike doesn't make it a road bike
