New to the forums. I recently picked up an 09 FTP 56CM and I was wondering why the frame is so darn heavy. Not that I don't like the frame because of its weight, I LOVE the frame but I'm just curious as to why this type of aluminum weighs so much. Does anyone know the weight of the frame before the seatmast is cut? I just want to see if this right or not since its unusually heavy. Don't know how people have builds that weigh as less as 15 pounds when I feel like the frame itself weighs like 10 pounds.
