My RedHook 52cm w/ Headset bearings, cage bolts, and hanger was 1416 grams....that's the price you pay for super thick paint. One of these days I'll tear down my black anodized sprint and weigh it, I'm curious what the difference is.

My friend who works for Spec told me that it was supposed to be in the 900g range, but this was before production so that target might have changed. I've had two Sprints and one was light and the current one is substantially heavier. My gold ano frame was ~1100g with bearings while my Sagan frame is over 1300g.
Yea, the original 2x gold Frameset was supposed to be something like 1150g for frame/fork with headset installed, but not sure what size that was. Wouldn’t surprise me if the paint on the Sagan, my Purple, etc add 200 or so grams to it. Which is still extremely light for a metal frame, especiallly considering how stiff it is. I read somewhere that the CAAD 12 frame, which is really the closest competitor, is a hair over 1kg, but not sure if that included the fork.

I'll leave it up to you to figure out the other 30%. If you are in any way offended, that's on you.

Canyon AL SLX will give both frames a run for their money. Not as pretty in the welding, but an awesome alloy frame. Comfortable, nimble, pretty damn light. Have the weight at home... will post.
It's ALL about the bike.

That praxis in the sprint is around 120g all by itself... at least that's what mine weigh.
