    Anyone know the weight of the Hotrock 16 frame?

    Frame only, no cups etc.

    Just want to be geekish and see how my Merida 616 frame compares.

    I did some research on this a while back. I ended up asking a specialized rep on Twitter, but e couldn't give me a good answer. If it's any consolation, the Gary Fisher Cosmo frame weighs 2lb 15oz.

    Thanks. that's your frame for a 20inch wheel bike isn't it? My frame is 2 lbs 5 oz.

    Can't wait to see how light the finished bike will be. I forgot to weigh the whole bike before I took it to pieces, but I have been weighing all the old bits as I replace them.

    Yeah 20" But damn, that frame is more than a half pound lighter that this frame. 10oz is huge.

    It is a very small frame, even compared to the hotrock 16, the size is more comparable to the 14 inch Spawn bike.

    It is also for a tiny boy - he is still two years old and less than 36 inches tall. I bet your son has a bit more power in his legs!

    Also just looked up the weight of my 7 year old's 20 inch Ridgeback MX20 and it is 24 pounds (complete bike). Ouch. That also has a lightweight aluminium frame so seeing as he will soon be moving up to a 24 inch, I will be able to keep the frame for a 20 inch build....
