Anybody know more or less what a Lemond Poprad frame weighs? Ideally a 49cm frame weight but any will do to get an idea. Thanks!

i know this isn't as specific as you'd like, but even in a 49 that frame is going to be extremely heavy. If I had to guess I'd say around 4 lbs or 1.8kg.

well, to answer my own question from a while back, 3.7lbs for a 49cm frame. Just got a new one last week. Yes, it's heavy, but it is steel and it was cheap.

thats not too bad. I mean the frame is extremely small, and at 3.7 lbs, with a carbon fork you can still build a pretty light bike. Hook up some pics when you're done!

If anyone is interested. I just replaced my X-Lite Fork on my 2006 49cm Poprad. I got the new Reynolds Ouzro Pro Cross fork.
The X-Lite weighs 803g! I thought it had an aluminium steerer but it was steel.
The Ourzo Pro Cross weighed 508 uncut.. 475g cut + 50g for the special starnut compresssion doo-hicky.

That's my bike! I can't believe I missed this post from so long ago. Thanks for using my pic Isaac.

They are Bontrager Race-X-Lite tubulars for Campy. I never posted a spec sheet, so you didn't miss anything. The bike is basically this:

Shifters: Campy Centaur
Cranks: FSA Carbon Team (single 40T chainring)
Rear Der: Campy Veloce
Fork: Alpha Q
Headset: King
Bar & Stem: Bontrager
Seatpost: Bontrager XXX light
Saddle: old school pre-trek Bontrager
Pedals: Crank Bros Candy (stainless)
Tires: Tufo Elite LP 32 (tubular)

Unfotunately I don't know the weight off the top of my head.
