    Spider FRO weight and opinions

    anybody have the true weight of a spider FRO frame (size medium). I have an old spider and although I loved the way it rode (now cracked) it wasn't exactly a light weight xc bike and I had to replace the pivot bearings twice a year. How much lighter are the FRO frames? Has the bearing durability gotten any better? Frame durability any better (mine cracked at the seattube - bb junction)? I would be using the bike for xc races as well as regular xc / all day rides and i can't afford to have a 'race only' bike. I'm currently on a carbon racer x that I have grown tired of and I'm looking for my new race bike for next year.

    2390g in Medium Works including RP23 shock. 2494g in Medium Pearl White with RP23. 2496g in Large Red.

    Same bearing size as the original Tracer. Can easily be modified to accept grease nipples.
