Wow so their scale says Cannondale is off by 148g on the shock (a 26.4% error) and 338g (12.9% error) for the frame and shock. Even if Cannondale is quoting the medium frame I am not sure a large would be 12% heavier, and the shock is the same for all of them. I also know bike manufacturers can lie about their numbers, but Cannondale has not be one of those in my experience. I wonder if they removed the headset to weigh the frame.tondar said:In last issue of German Bike magazine they tested the new Jekyll carbon 1 and they measure:
frame (large) without shock: 2250g
Did you get a medium frame? I've been eyeing the Jekyll 2 for some time. Seems like a very good spec for a fairly reasonable price. Anyway, if you do end up stripping it down it would be so awesome if you weigh it. Even bathroom scale weight is better than nothing. I hate relying on all these magazines and manufacturer weights. At any rate, I'd appreciate it greatly if you weighed yours (provided that you are willing to strip it down and not just go ride it).My Jekyll 2 comes tomorrow, and I am stripping most of the parts to build it up lighter. This makes me want to weigh the frame & shock just for giggles.
