It's a good bike for sure. Sold one at the shop today actually As for weight, not sure, I would guess around 34 lbs or so.

34 lbs sounds pretty hefty just looking at the spec sheet. I'd hope for a bit under 30 for a medium.

Yeah 34 is probably a little heavy, I would rather guess a weight heavier than give a weight lighter than it actually is.

I used to have a regular FSRxc, loved the geometry, I felt very in control of the bike.

Yup, I feel the same way about my 05 FSRxc Comp, very much in control. By the way, the weight of my bike, with a 17" frame is 30lbs. I thought the Pro was lighter than the comp. I also had the base model weighed when I bought mine, it was 32lbs. Again, this was a medium (17" frame).

True, but if you're off by 4 pounds or more, there's it's not super useful. Not nitpicking, just thought your guess was more than a little off. I'd be curious what the actual weight is, though.
