2007 5.5 EVP frame weighing in at 6.13lbs!!!!

I took my new 2007 5.5 EVP with the "works" finish and Fox rp23 to the local bike shop for an exact frame weight. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw 6.13 lbs:eek: :eekster: :eek: ! According to the Intense website, a 2007 5.5 EVP should weigh between 6.5 and 6.8 lbs. I didn't think the works finish would drop so much weight! It could have also been that they weighed the 5.5 with the manitou swinger 4way which is a heavier shock.

ANYWAYS, I am very excited about this frame weight! I wish I had a camera to take a picture of the scale for any non-believers:madman: . Who knows, maybe others have noticed that the frame is lighter than quoted...:skep:

I can only imagine what a 5.5 FRO would weigh in at with the works finish and Fox rp23...:thumbsup: Too bad it is has an internal headset. That frame deserves some Chris King BLING!!!:D :p
