    Norco Nitro frame weight?

    I would be very grateful for any info on any Nitro frame weights made after 2006-2007.
    According to the site 17" weighs 12.7 kilo and my calcucations show that the frame should be around 2 kg which is quite disappointing.

    I just picked up a 20" charger frame today and it weighed in at 1900g with headset. The 17" should be a bit lighter. The Nitro/Charger share the same frame as far as I'm aware.

    They're made in Vietnam.

    I did build up a Nitro last week and took it for a ride. It comes with pretty good components, but underneath the bright paint job, there lies nothing spectacular.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
