Not sure about the frame weight but my full build on a 2009 frame (don't think the 2012's much lighter) comes in around 28/9lbs. Spec is similar to the current Pro with a few lighter bits (Easton carbon bars, Thomson stem, Hope bits) so bet a 2012 Pro will be around that.

I'm fairly sure it's not far off 6.2lbs that's about 1lb heavier than my 2006 5.

2007/8 18" Orange 5 frame with RP23 rear shock weighed 6.66lbs I seem to recall from a bike mag test

Don't think the newer ones will be that far off that kinda weight
