    BMC Virus01 Hardtail frame weight?

    I've looked and looked.. but no luck (yes and Google is my friend). So i wondered if anyone here might be able to help.

    I'm after a weight, frame material / treatment, seat post and clamp diameter- for the BMC Virus01 17" hardtail frame.



    Many thanks in advance.

    Yes i have... but they don't distribute a frame set in Australia. Thanks for asking in such a polite manner.

    Any more smart arse comments?

    Why the stupid comment? Glen was actually trying to be helpful. Contrary to people's opinion, MTBRites don't know absolutely everything about bikes.

    LOL- Yes we do, but after being called a "twat" I feel like I ought not to tell him all the data he's in need of.

    Still, Mr. Impatient-anti-passion-post-bumper, you contacted BMC and asked them about the frame weight, and they said "we don't distribute to Australia"..? Weird.

    JK.

    Hell, I have not ever even seen a BMC mountainbike in the Rocky Mountains Region here in the USA.

    But just from the BMC site one can find that the bike takes a 31.6mm seatpost - so the clamp ought to be easy to figure out. Looks like it's aluminum, and the Virus 01 is HEAVY for a HT, weighing in stock at over 27 pounds for the complete bike with Deore and XT and in-house cheap bits. With a little work one could back out the weights of all the parts to get a frame spec.

    Or call people names...

    So is this enough passion for you? Built and ready to rock and roll. It's maiden voyage was at a 6hr Enduro at the You Yangs (Australia) where I rode it solo. Great ride and she weighs in at bout 10.4kg (with some good treads).

    For anyone that's interested the frame weighs 1.670kg

    Cheers.
