What's the average weight of a cyclocross frame?
What's the average weight of a complete cyclocross bike in the $1000 price range?
The reason I ask is because I was reading some reviews on Surly's Cross Check. The people who ride them really seem to like them and the only negative thing that comes up consistantly is people think they're "a little heavy". I looked on Surly's web site and the Cross Check frame was listed at about 4.5 pounds (4.45 for the smallest and 4.88 for the biggest). Other companies I looked at don't list the weights but even if a frame weighs half as much that's still a difference of only a couple pounds, that seems trivial to me but I have low standards.
I'm just wondering what standards people are comparing stuff to and if a couple of pounds are really that important.
