    Superfly 100 Pro/SL Complete Frame Weight

    Superfly 100 SL: 2360 grams
    Superfly 100 Pro SL: 1985 grams

    19" / Large frame.

    Both weights are WITH shock (same shock in both cases), all hardware and seat collar.

    Both weights are WITHOUT headset/bottom bracket bearings, rear ABP axle. Also WITHOUT the rubber downtube protector or the rubber chainstay protector.

    For reference, the SL is the one with a full alloy rear triangle (both seat and chainstays), the Pro SL has the full carbon rear triangle.

    Find it hard to believe that 375g (almost a pound!) is accounted for in the difference between alum and carbon stays. I've weighed carbon vs alum rear ends on old top fuels and measured very, very little difference.

    Would love to see photos. Weight the shocks, see if there is difference there.

    Like I said, the frames were weighed with the same shock. The difference is really 375 grams, I measured it all several times.

    For reference, the shock weight is 216 grams w/ bushings but w/o hardware.

    All pivot hardware (10 pieces, all alloy) is 55 grams. The flow molded shock link is 59 grams.

    The full alloy rear triangle is 982 grams w/ ABP hardware, der. hanger and bearings. I didn't weigh just the full carbon rear triangle -- but some basic math puts it at "about" 625 grams, which I believe.

    The SL front triangle is 1018 grams.

    The Pro SL carbon seat collar saves 13 grams over the alloy version, they are 14 and 27 grams respectively.

    Trek quotes 200 grams saved for the seat stays and another 200 grams saved for the chain stays, they are pretty close to the mark.
