3lbs is more than a little optimistic for the frame weight.

My money would be on 5-1/2lbs.

I would guess it's somewhere in between 3lbs and 5 1/2lbs, though because I haven't weighed mine I can't be definite...

Given that a decent Ti frame like mine weighs 3.26lbs, I doubt it's 3lbs :P

Glad you guys have flagged up the size issue, gonna measure up my 731 frame and ask for measurements from the seller I think!
