Sub 1000g frames

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sub 1000g frames

I'm about to start my next build. Looking for a frame to start. Something cheap. Something less than 1000g. I'm looking at the Cinelli Pro Estrada, but that is obviously not cheap. So cheap = relative to a 2,500 dollar frame - maybe half that would be good. Help me get the juices flowing.

I'm pretty sure the Cannondale SuperSix is under 1000 g these days. And it looks damn nice!

I just built up an older Fuji SL1, the C10 frameset, a couple of months ago. Frame weighed in at 880 grams. If you are interested in a used frame you could probably find one for $800 or less.

Pedal Force QS3

I've had one over a year and really like it. Only thing I don't like is BB30. I'd use the adapter for a standard BB if I didn't have a BB30 crank....

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll probably be picking up a used frame, but just wanted to make sure there weren't any other brands out there besides the big ones that I should be looking at. The Pedal Force frames look good, and I'm definitely going to keep looking at those.

Neo Hyper or Neo Exile Ultimate. My Neo Exile is 3 yrs old now and was 940g...the new frames are closer to 900g.

I really love my Neo and wish I hadn't messed my back up thus forcing me to a more upright position..Neo doesn't make a frame like the Synapse or Roubaix.



Here's the Hyper
