Sounds like they conveniently didn't include the fork blades in the weight. Kinda like the old rim weights "without ferrules."

Nice marketing ploy!

The brochure from Columbus says the weight is for 8 tubes for a 54cm center to center frame. My Used Bike Buyers Guide lists the tubeset at the 1700 or so grams that you mentioned, but I don't have that source readily in front of me.
