The seller claimed that the weight was 2480g, which is close to 5.5lbs if memory serves me right. ( 2.5kg -> 2.2 lbs = 1kg -> 5.5 lbs)
Schmolke themselves claim it's 2174g with shock and headset, which actually is closer to the 2.2kg my own scale indicates (without headset though).
Then again my scale is designed to measure people, so I have my doubts about its accuracy when dealing with such low weights.

Both Schmolke's claim and my quick measurement aren't bad if I look at the list of full suspension frame weights. It's right up there with the good Scandium ones.

All I know for sure is that it feels lighter than my Bulls' (alu hardtail) frame did the last time I had the bike apart. Then again it's as expensive as that entire bike was to begin with.

I think I'll keep it. Now it's just a matter of deciding what to do with it. Mini Velo or Urban Assault. Both options allow me to get away with a frame that is slightly too large.
I'm certainly not going to weenie it.

My question was after looking at the one on weightweenies.

I am guessing your one must be a bit lighter than you think.

Which is all good, right?
