I've got my frameset yesterday, a nice T-29, 29er hardtail built with Columbus Zona tubes. The nude frame (before painting) weights 1600g in medium size. My frame weighted in at 2002g including the pressfit GXP bottom bracket and the lower headset fitting. It has a race geometry and a rear 142x12mm axle.
I thought a canadian handmade steel 29er would be somewhat exotic so I plan on updating my thread as the build progresses. I may need some of the valuable weight-weenie help with regard to affordable and light parts. I already got a good bunch of parts and they are not the lightest but they are reliable. My first concern is reliability because I am training and racing a lot on my bike. My target weight would be 10,5kg though im not sure I can reach that goal with the current parts I have and intend to use for this build.
Of course there are plenty of photos to come with weights and scale shots

Anyways, here are a few shots of the frameset.
Would there be a weight saving benefit going CK? They sure look sick!
Do I have any other headset option? I'd really like something with a thinner bottom fitting, not sure it makes a huge difference on HT length though.

'Tape was made to wrap your GF's gifts, NOT hold a freakin tire on.'
No reason to run anything CK if weight is a concern! Extralite's new headset is the lightest (to suit a 44mm headtube, tapered fork combo) http://www.extralite.com/Products/UltraTop-Bottom.htm
FRM is another option.
Tune don't currently make a headset to suit tapered forks in 44mm headtubes AFAIK.
The frame weight is pretty good for what it is and definitely a fair bit lighter than something comparable, like a Niner. It's also heaps lighter than the errr, more entry level stuff from On One, Surly, Salsa etc
not sure the price is worth the few g saved though.
My main concern was the bottom external cup, since I absolutely need one, I'll keep the current headset. I already have the ultrastar 2
The stock seatpost clamp is 25g, I need something lighter but it has an uncommon diameter of 30mm. I know the cannondale EVO would fit, I think... Any other light options out there? Some more marginal saving!
SMUD carbon make a 30.0 clamp, as well as Tune and Mcfk for example.
