My 19" frame was 2220gr, with "dummy" rear shock and rear axle

thanks Alcaid

I've ordered a 19"too

what do you mean by "dummy" rear shock - do you mean the plastic part used for transportation?

if so, the weight wouldn't be in line with the given weight - I was told 2070gr without shock... we'll see

for my order, 25 days left does not let me any chance to get it for Christmass, but that's life.. it will arrive soon or later :-)
patience... patience :-)
I'll post some pics when I'll receive it
my build is already done..  on the paper, and if I can get all parts I want for a good price (Christmass time should help :-) ) it should be some kind of light FS bike (under 10.5kg with pedals)
we'll see  ;)

By "dummy" I meant the transport plastic part yes, same for the rear axle. Forgot to remove those before putting the frame on the scale  ::)

I was too curious so I signed up and had to ask, what are your thoughts for Cross country terrain with the bike geometry?

Also what is your height? Thanks mate.

Hello The1ne

I guess you did not read the frame specs with enough attention- a 100mm fork is required!
it's a XC/Marathon frame, not DH
 ;)

Do you think a Q156 XX1 crankset would fit on this frame?

Any usual Q factor will be fine.
What matter is the size of your chain ring.
32 teeth is normal, so you will never have issues around that size.
You may get in trouble with some frames if you use a 38 or higher.

Thanks for the feedback. So I guess Q156 is nothing out of the ordinary?

No, it is very common.
