    My medium 2013 Mach 5.7c frame was 2,535g including the shock but without the thru-axle, seat collar or anything else.
    Pretty sure it's identical for 2014 so the weight should be the same.

    My 2012 Medium 5.7C came in at 2.53kg (5lb 9oz) on the Park hanging scale. This was just the frame and shock as I received it, so no axle, BB or headset cups or bearings in installed.

    Mine came to 11.4kg (25.1lbs) with XTR pedals.
    The build included:
    - RockShox Revelation World Cup fork
    - Enve AM rims/Tune hubs/DT Revo spokes & 750g tyres
    - XTR running gear with a RaceFace NEXT triple crankset
    - Carbon railed saddle, Lev dropper post and Syntace carbon bars.

    It was a pretty light build - you can get anything to be light if you chuck enough money at the parts.
    Still, a real-life frame weight of 2,530g is a good starting point - it's pretty light when you consider the travel and intended use. Something like a Blur TRc will save you 200g but it's only got 125mm travel.

    I've got my build thread over here, it's got the weights it has been at various stages of it's life.: My Mach 5.7 of Carbonium Goodness

    The short versions are that it's been:
    11.80kg - 2x10 setup, light wheelset/tyres
    11.61kg - 1x10 setup, light wheelset/tyres
    12.00kg - 1x10 setup, heavier duty wheelset/tyres

    The 12.00kg build hasn't been noted in my build thread (I really should update that as it's been a few months now!). Most of the time I now run FlowEX on Hope Pro2 Evos, with a Hans Damps 2.35 up front and a Purgatory Control 2.3 out the back. it adds 400g in total, but adds a butt-load of confidence in looser, gnarlier terrain!

    It's probably even slightly lighter than 12kg now, as the other week I smashed the mid-cage derailleur and the Grip-Rings in a tumble (I was OK, the bike was OK, but it wanted to cartwheel down the hill!), which meant I've put on a short cage derailleur and new Ritchey foamy grips.

    But I guess you'll be looking anywhere between 10.5kg and 12.5kg, depending on your build, money and how many kidneys and other internal organs you're willing to sell
