Pace just confirmed their new RC295 frame weight: large, including rear shock, bearings and linkages, is 2.95kg (6.5 pounds).
Believe conversion rate is about $2450 USD including RT3 shock. Other packages available.

Pre-order in November, but since shopping cart isn't live nor their hardtail frame in stock, I can't get a shipping quote. Emailed, and they've been quick to reply.
