    SP frame weight - conflicting info

    I've been wondering that myself. Here's some conflicting info.
    I called Supergo and a tech guy said 5.75 lbs with shock. I thought, that's great!
    I went to the store and asked them to weigh a 16" frame (with seatpost)
    The sales preson said it came out at 7.25 lbs !
    Subtracting the seatpost, collar, and extra hanger = 6.5 lbs
    (Without a QRL, it should be a little under 6)

    Has anyone actually weighed one? Could there be that much variation from frame to frame?

    The sales rep told me it was around 6.5 pounds just frame and shock.

    In case it's helpful, my KHS 304 knockoff of the Superlight also weight 6.54 pounds.

    I don't know if you have seen the thread but there is a monster thread on the What bike to buy forum with a lot of discussion there, and from memory there is some mention of weights.

    Cheers
