I really wish manufactures would just have the balls to post the weight of their medium frame on their spec sheet, instead of giving some bs statement about how different frames will weigh different amounts and a slue of other horse $hit mud slinging.
That being said, it really should matter because you could build it up to be whatever weight you want. Weight doesn't dictate how a bike rides or feels and shouldn't be a deciding factor. Hell, I ride a 34-35lb steel HT, just get some bigger legs. I'd imagine it comes in around at 34lbs but that is just a guess
its not horseshit. pleny of bike manufacturers pull some slimy underhanded **** to artificially get their bikes to weigh much less than they actually do. giant is trying to halt the trend of misled consumers shopping solely on weight listings.
edit: just realized you said X1, not regular 1. my regular r1 weighed 29 fwiw.
