Has anyone built up a Boardman CXR 9.8 ? If so what sort of weight did you achieve ? I was perplexed to see the 9.4, which is basically the same frame, weigh in at 20.2 pounds. My Steel Volagi Vijae with Ultegra and Disks, cages and pedals is less than 2 pounds heavier. http://www.boardmanbikes.com/cx/cxr98.html
I would have thought a sub 18 pound build would be easily achievable without braking the bank using Ultegra and some decent wheels.
According to the website the frame isnt a porker (Frame: 1.05kgs Fork: 460g)
