My 51cm Cervelo R5 VWD is 732.6 grams, the uncut fork is 290.8 grams. That includes paint, collar, hanger, and water bottle bolts. Without headset.

There are plenty of companies that blow a lot of hot air about how they build the lightest bikes. The acually weights of Storck Fascenrio 0.6 were higher (much higher) than I expected. If anyone has actual weighs that are lower ( or higher) then lets get them posted here.

Storck only ever published proposed fusalage weight. That being from 1750g. My 0.6 is 1775g (with cut fork).

My guesstimate is that the Storck F0.6 frame...no brakes, fork, crankset, etc....is around 800 grams.
I'm sure there are lighter frames (like the SuperSix EVO) but the F0.6 sure does look very nice...
Now keep in mind that for building any other frame to compare the Storck F0.6 you would need some THM Clavicula o Storck PowerArms, Fibula or AX Orion brakes and a light fork.

My scott addict r1 2011 frame in med 54cm was only 788g inc mech hanger, i thought that was pretty damn good for a mass production and low cost to the likes of cervelo ca, vwd etc

The 0.6 is not a SUPER WW fusalage. And that is nothing to do with it's frame weight. The reasons being it's Di2 specific and the cut fork weighs 335g to accomadate the hidden brakes. You can get the 0.6 down to 10lbs which is light but it's impossible to get it to 8lbs like Gum's Crumpton.

2. Cervelo C5 ca 690g
3. Storck Fascenario 0.6 700g
All at 56cm
