    El Gordo Frame Weight

    Did anyone happen to weigh their medium El Gordo frame before building it up?

    Thanks!

    What is the concern with weight? It is a fatbike. The tires and rims are the big contributor to weight.

    I would focus more on the geometry, rear dropouts, rear spacing (you can specify 170 or 190) and head tube (Bluto).

    I have owned many fatbikes and by far the El Gordo is my favorite and anyone else who has riden my fatbikes collection agrees.
