Closer, the seat, post, clamp setup weighs 2.4 and could easily be cut in half or more to shed over 1lb.

Tires could lose 1lb. easy too.

I was surprised by the frame weight, it is not as much as I would have expected, certainly not light either, any guess on it?

Do you know how much any of yours weigh, frame only?
