Sub 7.5 kg disc CX-bike inc dropper-post

My plan so far is to use a Scott Addict cx-20 frame that has internal routing for dropper and also pretty light for the price. The Scott frame has internally routing for dropper, but I guess you can get that on any frame as long as it is space above the bottom-bracket for a cable? Any other frame that will work? I have found a used Scott frame for around 1100€

I also looking for a really light 27.2mm dropper-post with internal remote. preferably not more than 400€ This is my plan so far, any thoughts?

Scott CX-20 1140g
Forks 462g
Source for the weight: this thread: ... 5#p1362053

Sram Red 22 levers, use modified left lever for dropper remote.
Sram CX1 cranks 42t
Sram Force 11-32 cassett
No front mech

Juin Tech R1 300g for the pair (easy weight saving for low cost, coming from canti-brakes so hope the stopping power will be enough)

Tubular sub 1400g, probably DT350 + light bicycles rims and Aerolight spokes.

Finishing kit
All carbon saddel, stem and handlebar.

Don't forget compressionless housing with the Juin Tech brakes.

Have a look through r2-bike for posts. You can view by weight.
Curve Grovel ti.

Any other suggenstion of frames and where to buy? No problem if used as long as it is disc brake and light. I raced a Cannondale SuperX 2012 last season and I really liked it.

Looked at and any other sites that sell cross-frames?
