    Sub 1 kg 29" frame?

    Hi

    I'm looking into upgrading my frame. I have a 17" Chinese carbon frame at 1174g right now, but I'm looking into getting a lighter one. What options do I have in the sub kg area? So far these are the ones I'm aware of:

    Scott scale
    Open 1.0
    Trek Superfly
    Felt niner FRD
    Cannondale flash
    Apro-tek (chinese)

    Cheers!

    Scott Scale SL, Premium or RC. The rest of the Scale models are over 1kg.

    DB overdrive carbon at 1kg don't know if they sell only the frame

    What's wrong with the Chinese carbon frame? Just the weight?

    Yeah, mostly the weight. I want to go below 7kg for a suspended 29" and therefore need a lighter frame. Most likely the comfortflex and stiffness of the higher end bikes will be better as well
