Hi guys, scandium (Easton Sc7000) is suppose to be lighter and stronger than most other aluminiums.

I can get a frame with a weight of 1.18kg/2.6lbs. A 56cm and the weight includes bottle cage bolts, paint and the seatpin. Compact geometry, but not as compact as say a Giant. The BB has a steel insert, and the frame also a little brace welded between the chainstays, close the bb, to increase stiffness.

Is this weight what one would expect from a scandium frame? give me any comments that can help me. Any other detail, just ask, thanks!!

For what its worth my medium sized scandium mountain bike frame weighs in at 1191g/2.6lbs (with nylon water bottle cage bolts!)

So I think yours is pretty much on target.
