Did I see wrong...did the superlight add junk to the trunk? Thought the bike frame was at 5.2 lbs. in 2010, now it weighs 5.4 lbs. for 2011? Didn't notice anything on website about changes, so what happened?

Where did you get the weights from? Details have been all over the shop since the website "refresh".

US site: Weight: (Size medium with shock) 5.49lbs
UK site: Frame weight with Fox Float R shock - Approx 5.03lbs

You could be right. If I go on holiday to the US just now I recon my Heckler frame will only weigh 4.5lbs. :( Darn exchange rate.

The first link shows a very old model (no replaceable hanger, old swingarm), at least 3 years old...the second has the frame costing over 2g's!

The difference youre finding may also be that they previously offered annodized frames, and I believe they were in the neighborhood of .2 lbs lighter (from what I remember of the old bike builder) compared to powder coating.
