    Actual Anthem frame and/or bike weights?

    I would love to know what the Anthem frames weigh... ideally the 20" without anything on it other than the rear shock, but it wouldn't matter much if the weight included headset etc.

    I'm 6' tall and ride a L Spider frame... would the 20" Anthem be best for me?

    Excellent thanks. Is that a new listing at Weight Weeners? I usually check there for stuff but most of it is old.

    my anthem 3 UK spec came in at about 28lbs... not very pleased considering the Giant site said 25.85lbs... ah well more room for upgrading i suppose!

    sorry yes i should have said that im 6"2 and the 20 is still quite long for me but it does have a 120mm stem!!! at 6" you need to try the 18" option on a prebuilt as well just once before buying. have fun, my first anthem ride was an eye opener in terms of speed but am coming off a reign which is definatley in the steam roller category!
