Lordy there is an awful lot of Psynics out there that need to get a life? All the parts were weighed individually on an assayed scale, see the list!
Yes it cost me a fair bit, but it's all about critical choice of components, tyres, tubes, cassette, wheels and BB are all big savers. We also have a lower gravitational pull in the UK than the US, so everything is lightweight
What's the point in putting it on a scale? I could just as easily negatively pre load that and then be acused of fiddling that too?
Checkout the weights on Weight Weenies site, they are genuine enough and the weight is nothing exceptional, plenty of sub 15 fully geared mtb's on there!
The frame is sold,(too big I need a 14 and they didn't make one) the bike stripped and the next project is on the go!
I don't have a mortgage btw.
