Wow, my first posting here I think. I am not a weight weenie. Never gave a stuff about what weighed what. The feel of a frame was much more important to me.
Having said that, I always considered my Kili Flier Comp a heavy bike. It comes from the, "Let's oversize everything" era. A mate and I started a team where the bikes had to weigh in excess of 30lb.

So, bearing in mind this was a top of the range Tange Prestiege frame:

1990 Saracen Kili Flier Comp 18.5" C to T weight 6.4lb. No forks or headset cups but couldn't be bothered to take the Shark Fin off.
