Yep, that's the frame weight sans shock.Looks great, can't wait to see moar build photos
Frame is 6.5lbs with no shock right? That seems light to me, it's a shock away from the Following weight (6.5 with shock).
Also fwiw, my 1200mm WB Spitfire shreds in Pisgah and has no problems with switchbacks. I bet this thing will fly.
