I reckon its ebike territory.... 60kg

Needs some carbon
you're probably not far off mate, i cant pick it up as it's too bulky so we will never know! i also can't afford carbon! have you not seen how cheap i am with what i buy? :LOL:
Sram cassettes are the cheapest/lightest option
i appreciate someone coming back to me on the drivetrain question! are the shimano compatible? I can't afford new front ring, chain, wheels, mech, shifter AND cassette all at once!
Bit off topic mate 🙄
this made me chuckle....if there is any more bench talk i might have to change the name of the thread :LOL:

So the FM is at 11.8kg, or 26lbs.

Pretty happy with that all things considered. The new frame has that down to about 11kg and I still have wheels and drivetrain to mess with.

Started to flat back the new frame today but it is one of many projects this summer!IMG20210529185045.jpg

Entertaining thread Oli! Those 97 Fire Mountains look so good in the factory colours. Maybe do the new frame in the same blue with a retro theme?
