Not all the frames out of my shop wind up in the neighborhood. This one is going to Switzerland, just as soon as I can put the bottle bosses and seatstay cable stop on. ( I ran out of them....rookie move.) The main tubes of this frame are Easton Scandium and the wieght is low, 2 lb. 14 oz. This is typical for a full on race frame of this style. Maybe it will be in a lcoal race, maybe in a world cup. It should handle either scenario about the same.
