With paint removed bare frame weighs in at 2.4kg with the fork 780gms.Still tossing up with the removal of the shifter bosses.If i could get a pair of "Problem Solver" boss covers i would leave them on,until then i will hold off on priming and start work on replacing the top tube of my Miyata 1200.
