2.7kg for a complete, rideable bike?

It makes me laugh when people go on about how 'fragile' modern production carbon fibre bikes are... and then someone produces something like this.

OK, it's at the extreme end of what's capable with CF at the moment, but it puts a 1.5kg MTB frame into perspective.

At the end of the day it doesn't matter as the lightest a competition bike is allowed to be is 6.8Kg.
