Based on the frame/fork weights there is ~0.33lbs difference between a CC and a LHT. The component spec will make a difference, but they don't list the weights of the complete bikes.

I'm heading to my LBS this weekend - if they have both a CC and a LHT in stock in similar sizes I'll weigh them and post the results.
