So, anyone know if the frame has been getting any lighter since 2008? Thx.
That would be my guess.swoodbrn said:So, what I'm getting from this is - not much change in frame weight since '08 (except for maybe paint).
It was in every web site and magazine (or so it seemed) a few months ago. However, the 400g weight drop was comparing the '09 Alum to the '10 carbon Trance X so not really apples to oranges. Longer travel bikes from the Reign and up did drop huge amounts like 675g+ though from the '09 to '10 Alum frames. Just repeating what was in the Giant 2010 press launch info. I haven't weighed any myself.antonio said:That would be my guess.
No way Giant would drop 400 grams (or any significant weight) from the aluminum frame and keep it a secret. We would have heard about it in every magazine and mtb website.
