I'd be interested in a verified weight of the frame and fork. The headtube junction makes it look heavy, even if it may not be.

£800 is pretty much top whack for a Chinese frame and there are a few new models from Hong Fu, Deng Fu etc. that are better value.

Nevertheless, a nice looking bike.

I also have been waiting weeks and months for the N2A and finally got my frame today :)

However, I was more than a little disappointed when I put it on the scales 1272g for a Large. WTF!!!
I thought I might have a wrong size or something, but then when I checked the P-X website I see they have revised the weight upwards by almost 300g :evil:

Danny, I'm curious to know if you weighed your frame or were you quoting the listed weight?

I'm disgusted!!! This is heavier than my old and battered P-X SL Pro Carbon.

Frame - 1272
Fork (Uncut) - 434g
Seatpost - 201g
Headset - 79g
Total = 1986g


oh damn... dont say that. the frameset was looking soo attractive. 300g difference, why? it is a bit of a bait and switch. they said they were using t800/t700 carbon, maybe they are using lesser quality carbon and have to use more to get the same results, thus a heavier frame?

regardless its still a nice bike, just less attractive now.

interesting... so it seems to be an open mould. i wonder how much they are charging for the frameset and if they offer a superlite version. the chinese oem's have been giving the option for a lighter frameset using Toray T1000 instead of T700 carbon. i wonder if they offer it for this frameset? maybe that way you can get closer to the original quoted weight.

So my new frame arrived today, it's a large, and is certainly not a weight weenie:

Frame - 1224g
Fork (Uncut) - 407g
Seatpost - 196g
Headset - 134g
Total = 1961g

I'm torn because I really like the frame, but was looking forward to going a few hundred grams lighter than what I have at the moment. The old nanolight and SL Pro Carbon weight in less than this, but are not nearly as stiff.
