    According to their 2004 weight table that I have a copy of:

    8.44lbs. for a Medium size frame...

    This is the equivalent of a Hydraulicman size Regular... (just teasin'):D

    But seriously - it's 8.44lbs. - not sure if the shock is included with that.

    That's what I thought also. I got a mail from a certain Jarett @ turnerbikes (never talked to him before) and he claimed it was arount 6.5 lbs.

    That couldn't be correct, everybody is always saying that the weight is so "high":confused:

    6.5 lbs. could be an accurate description of that frame's weight if it is w/o the shock. Keep in mind that these frames usually used a coil-over deal, from Romic I think, so that could be right.
