Raleigh RX 1.0 weight

I think I saw a thread a while back with some folks having this model. Was looking at a closeout 2017 model for $700, which seems like a heck of a deal. Does anyone know how much this model (ideally 56cm) weighs? Caveat, I have done 5 cx races on a ~30lb hybrid I converted to a drop bar cross bike, so literally anything will be lighter!

Probably right at 20lbs or so.

my 2011 rx1 weighs just under 21lbs in race mode. itís a small frame with a carbon/aluminum fork, rim brakes, fairly porky wheels, and heavily modified drivetrain/cockpit. I could probably shave about another # with different wheels, cassette, and rear derailleur.

when it was bone stock I believe it weighed closer to 22lbs.

hope that helps...

Thanks, as it turns out, my wife bought it for me as a surprise, I'll be picking it up tomorrow. for the price and specs (2x11 mix of rival shifters and FD and force RD) it seems like a good deal. it has cantilever brakes, which for some may be a deal breaker but I wasn't looking to go disc yet (I have a powertap wheel with an a23 rim I can swap between my road bike and this CX model)
