With a Full Red group and my DT Swiss wheels which are lighter than the Bontragers this would sit around 16.9lbs/7.67Kg. I could probably get it to 16.5/7.50 with some lighter wheels and maybe bar/stem.
I am going to make one change from this and put on my Syncros integrated carbon bar/stem from my old bike (adapter coming). I need a longer stem and this will do the trick at 120mm. The integrated bar stem just feels better than my Pro Vibe setup.
So I finally got my frame and fork in and I’m confused with the frame weight. Within the trek website it’s indicated the frame is around 700 grams. I understand things like size and paint can play a role in weight but mine is over 900 grams as a size 52? Of course it’s only 200+ grams heavy but I specifically picked this bike based on the advertised weight.
Sounds like a call / email to Trek (or wherever you ordered from) is in order.
And just to mention the potential, make sure to remove any and all bolt-on parts. That may only be the rear derailleur hanger depending on what you have there that I can’t see in the tiny pic, but I would bet solid money that their weight estimates are without anything installed.
That’s so wrong (advertising sub 700g and then reality is 200+g more). Here’s a pic of my 2021 Scott Addict RC 10 size 54 with hanger…I seriously wonder if Trek published weights w/o the t47 BB threaded cup thingys? Is that even possible?
There was a time when companies would post frame weights that were based on just the pure frame w/ zero parts on it….so yes, it is possible (not saying this is what Trek did…just noting that it has been done in the past).
And it is absolutely possible that their claim weight is for a bare frame and not painted. While 200g is a lot for paint, I’ve seen it before.
