A previous topic didn't get anywhere it seems;
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=89212

This might give you a ballpark figure though (I can't imagine the frame you're looking at would be any lighter);

Good evening Mr.digiadaamore,
I have been riding one of these frames for the last 2 years. I picked it up to be a second bike for when the weather was crap, but it has become my favorite ride as it fits well and handles beautifully. When I built it up I weighed the frame to be 1260gr in Medium with the rd hanger and FD mount, but with the headset removed.

Image

BUT
1. The original fork sucks. It's heavy, having an alloy steerer and too flexy. I replaced it with an Idunnowhat from Taiwan, but it did the trick. The bike feels flawless when descending and tracks well on crap surfaces.
2. It is supplied with a goofy headset. Read more here: http://ocdlikeme.blogspot.com/2011/12/number-of-beast.html
3. The frame comes with a seat post adapter to run a 27.2 post. It alone weighs some 56gr (AND killed a carbon post). Chuck it and run a 31.6 post or get a USE shim.

Apart from that I love this thing and will give it up when it is pried from my cold, dead chamois retention cleft.
PM me if you need any more info.

I've seen both framesets in my LBS. The first one (LE) is actually a heavier and a cheaper version. That model came out around 2010-2011 in Asia, while the 2nd one is a slightly older one 2009-2010 model that is similar to the higher/premium Aluxx version. It has better welds and is lighter.
