This one will travel very far

Not all the frames out of my shop wind up in the neighborhood. This one is going to Switzerland, just as soon as I can put the bottle bosses and seatstay cable stop on. ( I ran out of them....rookie move.) The main tubes of this frame are Easton Scandium and the wieght is low, 2 lb. 14 oz. This is typical for a full on race frame of this style. Maybe it will be in a lcoal race, maybe in a world cup. It should handle either scenario about the same.

Paul, the Scandium frames come in under 2 pounds? Wow! That's light.

What does your typical Easton MTB frame weight (in a largish size)? Does a disc brake mount add much weight to the frame?

Whoops, it's 2 lbs. 14 oz. typo, i'm afraid. Thanks for noticing it. I would haet to have to try to build a sub-2 lb. frame out of anything ! The easton MTB frames are usually 3 1/2 lbs. and a discmount weighs only about an ounce.
