Those Unno and GrigioCarbonio frames sure look nice! I wonder if GrigioCarbonio is actually going to make a production version that light? I guess the price will be quite astronomical though. Can't wait till I'm done with my education!

Edit: Price for the GrigioCarbonio is apparently going to be about the same as for the Scott Scale RC SL, according to a Facebook comment by Dream-Bikes themselves.

Uh, shouldn't you define wheel size and geometry?

Personally I have no interest in riding a 900g frame with a 71° HTA. I'd gladly ride a 1100g frame over some relic that looks good on a scale.

OP is after a 27.5 frame. Geometry aside this is one of the better threads in a while.

What is the frame weight of that CS-196-SL? What size?

To stay within budget I would look for a NOS 27.5 Scott Scale and remove clear coat/paint.

it will be same price as scott (4000e)


where did you get that info? I've "heard" about 5000€ for the frame. Anyway, HaakonJohansen says the Scale is out of his budget so is the Unno for sure!

information is directly from Unno
HT-4000e
FS-5000e

sure it's out of his budget, but as a part of the list of sub 900g frames it's valid
Ellsworth Truth = 9371g

Thanks for the info guys. I'll probably end up with a frame from GrigioCarbonio one day (when I'm finished with my education). Their parts doesn't have weight limits either, which I see as a plus, although I don't really need very high weight limits;P

I've updated the list btw.

New S-Works Epic HT, claimed to be sub800g which would be truly awesome.
But am I the only one who's a bit skeptic about that weight is including paint, derailleur hanger etc? Specialized seem to often come with quite heavy paint jobs and that would mean a raw one would be in the 700-750g range maybe depending on paint weight. That's a huge step down from an unpainted Unno or Scott Scale RC SL that is about 790g.

Just checked in on this thread and saw that I've overlooked this post. I don't remember exactly, but i think it was around 1020-1050 grams with the derailleur hanger, size 19 with BSA bb. My current build is going to be at below 6.1kg when the Extralite grips I've ordered arrives. That's with a rigid fork and a 110kg weight limit (or higher) for all the parts, with a rigid fork though.

Would be really nice building up a GrigioCarbonio frame, with GrigioCarbonio rims, and a Focus Raven MAX carbon fork. Would easily be below 6 kg for a full 29'er build. Would be a bike waay too expensive/high-end for my level of skill, but of course; that's already the case with my current rig;P
