my 94 Axis, was about £800 new. It is rigid, almost completely original and 23.5lb with pedals
Edit: I've swapped the saddle, and put SPDs on it. It wouldn't have SPDs originally, so I've added weight. It has original tyres. The saddle I swapped a Bonty ti for a Flite Ti, so very little weight difference.
Really? The 1992 catalogue lists the axis pro as 25.5 lbs in standard form with full XTR.
I've got a 92 Axis with OX tubing (as well as a 91 with OX tubing) and those frames are notably heavier than the TT-Lite frames used in the Apex and Axis in subsequent years.
I'm not saying the TT-Lite frames were a couple of pounds lighter than the OX frames, mind, but they were most certainly lighter - I've held one of each in my hands, and at a guess, I'd say the OX frames were 5-something pounds, and I've weighed a TT-Lite frame at, I think, 2100-something grammes, so a reasonable amount of weight difference in the frames.
I'd say there's quite a difference, at least for DBs of that era, from 92, compared with 94 / 95.
