About 11kg ish, will weigh tomorrow. Could easily be dropped a lot lower though

Carbon bars, 1x9 or 10 and lighter cranks could make that thing light as hell. I give it a 7.5/10, looks like you could do some serious miles on it! 9/10 with the upgrades and the handlebar things removed. Smile

8.5/10 for being made out of bamboo and having bar ends. Did you have to cut your grips and if you didn't what grips are you using?

nar i just moved them in Smile not sure on the make as they came with it but i think they may be m-part

Thats nice man, 9/10. looks like a great ride, bet it shreds!

Just weighed my giant, 32.10 lbs. not bad although it seems that it should be heavier. will be higher with the reverb though. hoping carbon bars and perhaps tubeless will counteract that though.

8.5 on the Meta AM because I love the look of Commercial frames and that blue is a sick color. Want to give one of those a go sometime see if they ride as good as they look.

To each his own. A friend has one so its not just based on looks. It rides decent but does not have the feel/perfomance of a higher end bike, period. It is however a great entry level bike!

They have not been consistent from year to year on their build specs, trying to find the line between economical and competitive. Now that they aren't selling in the US, it looks to be back to the High end for them. Helps to have Akrigg dominating on them as well.
