    Upgrade from 2009 BMC FS02 frame to 2011 FS01?

    Always wanted a carbon bike and I might be able to swap my old 2009 FS02 to a 2011 FS01 (new, unused) frame for around $1500. This is way less than the price of a whole carbon bike but I'd be stuck with 26". I want the lightest possible bike and I know the FS01 is one of the lightest frames out there, but I can't find anywhere how much my FS02 frame weighs for comparison. Any idea how much weight I'd be saving and if how much it's worth paying for the upgrade?

    The 2011 FS01 Frame and rear shock weigh in at about 2000 grams together according to Evans in the UK. I hope that helps

    I just saw that German Magazine "Mountainbike Magazin" had a test of the FS01 back in 2011. The weight including shock they measured was: 2011g
