Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

i know its heavy eh? no thats just the frame. It'd be nice to see what some other similiarly sized cx frames weigh. Cyclocrossworld.com claims that the 2006 Redline conquest pro weighs 1530g in 56.

My 2001 S-Works CX came in at 1633g for a 58cm frame including seat collar, rear cable hanger, and bottle cage bolts. One day I'll take a picture and get it up here.

You guys haven't seen heavy yet -
My Rock Lobster 60cm custom steel cross with seat collar & bottle bolts weighs 1900g. And that's not the worst of it - the steel unicrown fork weighs 923g.

The good side? Well, in 10 years I'll still be riding & racing my cross bike, while you guys will be drinking beer out of yours.

And the fork will soon be replaced with an Easton carbon, for a savings of roughly 1 pound!

No, no suspension fork, just rigid steel. I'll post a picture later.

elmar is laughing at us :D . I'll admit that I'm only as WW as I can afford to be, which isn't much. My fork is also something like 900+ grams. One of these days I'm going carbon, but not anytime soon. In truth the bike was mostly a left-over parts build. Even the frame was a trade with a buddy when Specialized sent him a size too big after he broke his 2000 CX.
It works, and it gets me out there a bit in the winter to play around. Nothing too serious for me.
