The lack of info on things like frames and wheels and seat posts is annoying. Often it's for weight limits for lightweight components, but on the other end, it'd be super helpful. I know a lot of Treks--those featherweight road bikes at the very least--are rated for a max of 275 lb, which is pretty great considering you can build those to 15-16 lbs. Granted at that weight they won't be holding Clydes up (just short climbers), but still, the frame and fork need to be very light to achieve low weights.

Congrats on walking that weight number down, and in a dead-consistent fashion!
