    Who can beat 27.8lbs for an XL Al frame Trance X

    I'm not trying to start a competition here. I'm just curious where I stand. I didn't weigh the bike when it was stock (2011 X4) but an educated guess puts it around 33-35lbs. Current total weight with pedals is 27.8lbs.

    Pretty easy I would have thought. My 09 L is about 26.5 lbs without any huge weight weenie concessions. I run 1 x 9 though.

    I'd rather have a lb heavier frame that is stiffer though. Later models should be stiffer?

    I agree gvs_nz. I thought I'd have 20 lighter bikes posted by now. Stiffness isn't real important to my low aggressive trail riding.
