Wheels are the only big weight improvement I can see. Think there is a pound to lose there. Glue on grips might be another place, but we are not talking much weight there. Seat and post maybe? Not sure of those weights yet...
Must be some other "heavy" bits on the bike. Not to say its heavy by any means. I know the frame is very light. Maybe the new PBR lefties have picked up some grams?
Even some crest and tubless could get it down a pound, im still suprised it isnt lower. Its 1x with hollowgram cranks, a carbon post ect. What did you weigh it on?
I'm with him, reason I asked what size frame it was. My '12 F29 Carbon 3 Lrg is lighter then your medium FSI. Yes it did not start out as light as it is, but would have thought a medium FSI would be lighter. I think they are putting heavier stuff on the new bikes.
'12 Flash 29r C3 with a few mods
'10 Synapse 5 Carbon with a few mods as well..
Haven´t weight it yet, tomorrow i´ll ride it for the first time.
Well i did my first ride, the bike is very very fast.
The Lefty, although it´s said that is heavier, keeps working like no other fork.
My wheels worked fine, it was a short ride, i´ll have a better opinion in some weeks. I think they gave a good contribution to the fastness.
Didn´t fancy the Fabric seat, it´ll be replaced for sure (had this in mind already, besides it´s heavy).
The tires are also something to change. I think a larger tire is better, i´ll wear this ones and change.
Had no chance to weight it yet!
