The Ridley X Night SL is said to come in at 860grams for a painted size 52 (535mm top tube) frame, with a 480gram fork:

Anything lighter?
What other options am I missing at a similar weight?

It would be nice to have a thread with as many weights as possible.

I can't contribute much as my RXC pro is a hog but in my experience I'd trust Scott to get closest to their claimed weight. CX weights balloon pretty quickly but that's from the equipment choices not the 100-200g in the frame weight.

I had a Ridley cross frame a few years ago - the published weight was CONSIDERABLY lighter than the actual. Also owned a couple of Focus Mares frames, both of which were very close to the published weight.

It's also my understanding, that this is one of the lightest ones.

FWIW, I bought a Specialized Crux that was steeply discounted just for its frameset because the Crux was supposedly "so much lighter" than my Santa Cruz. However, after taking home the new Crux, I was horrified by the weight. So I started taking it apart (as much as I dared on a bike I was pretty sure I would now return) and weighing everything. What was left, I estimated based on published weights (which I know is dangerous). Still... it was 485g heavier than expected. Something doesn't add up.
