Now that I'm thinking about it I may swap out a few things or do some weight comparisons to see, 22lbs. would be ambitious but we'll see.

Weight was not a concern for the build but did assume it would not be light. I believe the fork, SS and CS tubes are all touring, strong or just plain heavy.

This size of a frame very much falls into the range where many builders go up at least 1 strength level to keep it strong enough.

A couple of the Merz's are pretty heavy for this reason but ride like a dream and can be loaded to the gills.
