I don't have the facility to weigh the whole bike accurately, so I weigh each component before assembly. I'm sure it's reasonably accurate ;) I do have a spring balance that will take the whole bike, and that shows about 21.5lb, so seems about right ;)

Thanks Jan :)

I think the white Flite goes well with the forks and decals :? - what would you suggest? - black? brown?

Cheers
