    I'm pretty sure it's just straight-gauge 4130 tubing.

    so it is cromoly at least. i have mine set up with nice nice stuff and it still weighs 21 lbs. im not too conserned about weight, obviously i bought a steel frame, but i expected less. so the rob roy is a naked crosscheck with a bendy backside

    Try a different fork. The stock IRO fork is a ****ing boat anchor.

    Rob Roys are made of the same steel from which Conan's Atlantean sword was forged...invincible, of course.

    I'm putting a super sweet Steelman fork on mine. The fork is worth twice the amount of the frame!

    For what it's worth, a Rob Roy frame/fork still weighs less than a Cross Check frame/fork. I think there's at least a half-pound difference, mostly in the fork.
