I've never weighed a frame before a build and it comes in at 964g(54cm)... :(...in BoB. Isn't black supposed to be the lightest color after a bare frame?

What were you expecting? The frame was annonced at 860g without paint and hardware.

you can build a light bike with a 964g frame... Pina's have never been super light.

Wasn't on my radar at first, but then a good deal came about.

There's one in the Bay Area that checks in at 10 lbs but it took Obermayer's and a one-piece bar combo to get there.
